set-permissions

Action to set permissions for creating volumes from a snapshot

Use the ‘add’ and ‘remove’ parameters to control which accounts to add or remove respectively. The default is to remove any create volume permissions granted to other AWS accounts.

Combining this action with the ‘cross-account’ filter allows you greater control over which accounts will be removed, e.g. using a whitelist:

example

policies:
  - name: ebs-dont-share-cross-account
    resource: ebs-snapshot
    filters:
      - type: cross-account
        whitelist:
        - '112233445566'
    actions:
      - type: set-permissions
        remove: matched

  add:
