Deren helps you grant an IAM user
access to your billing information


I want to grant an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user or group the permissions needed to access my account's billing information—how do I do that?

You can allow an IAM user to view your billing information by completing the following steps:

  1. Activate access to billing information for IAM users by following the instructions at Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console.
    Note: Until this step is completed, only the root user of an account can access the Billing and Cost Management console.
  2. Update the IAM policy for the user or group to allow access to billing information. For example policies, see Billing and Cost Management Policy Examples. If you've created a new policy, attach the policy to the user or group. For more information, see Managing IAM Policies.

Note: The AWS Policy Generator can help you generate a policy that fits your use case, but be sure that you also understand the fundamentals of IAM. For more detailed information on billing permissions, see Billing Permissions Descriptions. For a general explanation of how IAM works, see What Is IAM?
