This installation method leverages a CloudFormation script which can be viewed here. You can also view a list of permissions granted by the IAM role.
After you make a new AWS integration in CloudWisdom, the script populates a read-only IAM role in your AWS account and links it using the integration’s Account ID and External ID. Once created, it may take a few minutes for the status to be updated.
Setting up an AWS integration via IAM Role is a five step process:
Create a new AWS integration in CloudWisdom. Optionally, define data filters for AWS elements to be included/excluded in CloudWisdom using tags (key-value pair). Create a custom in-line policy for Cost Explorer API access. Create a custom in-line policy for Cost and Usage Reports read access. Create an IAM role in your AWS Console. Add your IAM Role’s ARN to your AWS integration in CloudWisdom.
