Auto Scaling image

As of May 15, 2017, you can define AWS Identity and Access Management policies to control which Auto Scaling resources users can access and the actions users are permitted to perform on those resources. Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to scale your Amazon EC2 capacity up or down automatically according to conditions you define.

With resource-level permissions, you can enable different users within an organization, such as application developers and IT specialists, to access and modify launch configurations and Auto Scaling groups with appropriately configured permissions.
