Required Permissions

To create tiers for object transition, MinIO requires the following administrative permissions on the cluster:

For example, the following policy provides permission for configuring object transition lifecycle management rules on any bucket in the cluster:.

{
   "Version": "2012-10-17",
   "Statement": [
      {
            "Action": [
               "admin:SetTier",
               "admin:ListTier"
            ],
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Sid": "EnableRemoteTierManagement"
      },
      {
            "Action": [
               "s3:PutLifecycleConfiguration",
               "s3:GetLifecycleConfiguration"
            ],
            "Resource": [
                        "arn:aws:s3:::*"
            ],
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Sid": "EnableLifecycleManagementRules"
      }
   ]
}

Transition Permissions

Object transition lifecycle management rules require additional permissions on the remote storage tier. Specifically, MinIO requires the remote tier credentials provide read, write, list, and delete permissions.

For example, if the remote storage tier implements AWS IAM policy-based access control, the following policy provides the necessary permission for transitioning objects into and out of the remote tier:

{
   "Version": "2012-10-17",
   "Statement": [
      {
            "Action": [
               "s3:ListBucket"
            ],
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Resource": [
               "arn:aws:s3:::MyDestinationBucket"
            ],
            "Sid": ""
      },
      {
            "Action": [
               "s3:GetObject",
               "s3:PutObject",
               "s3:DeleteObject"
            ],
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Resource": [
               "arn:aws:s3:::MyDestinationBucket/*"
            ],
            "Sid": ""
      }
   ]
}

Modify the Resource for the bucket into which MinIO tiers objects.
