Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) Adds Support for Role-Based Access Control

Posted on: Mar 26, 2020

Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads. Amazon DocumentDB makes it easy and intuitive to store, query, and index JSON data.

Today, Amazon DocumentDB added support for Role-based Access Control (RBAC). RBAC gives you the ability to create users and attach built-in roles to restrict what operations the user has authorization to perform. Common scenarios for using RBAC include enforcing least privilege such as a read-only role, or building a multi-tenant application where each tenant is restricted to accessing a single database in the cluster. As part of this launch, we also increased the number of users per cluster by 10x to 1000.
