CloudBerry Backup with IAM users

CloudBerry Backup provides users with an ability to use Amazon Identity and Access Management service that allows to share one S3 account with multiple users and specify access rights for each of them.
Below is a brief guide on how to:
  • configure multiple users to have limited access to one S3 account
  • generate individual Access and Secret Keys for each user
  • configure CloudBerry Backup for each user.
Creating an Amazon IAM user
Use CloudBerry Explorer PRO to create IAM user. You can download a fully functional trial version here, it is free for 15 days.
To start you’ll need a Amazon Web Services account configured in CloudBerry Explorer. You can learn how to do that in our video tutorial.
Having an AWS account assigned with CloudBerry Explorer you can start creating your IAM user. Below are the steps you have to take:
Step 1. Open CloudBerry Explorer PRO, go to “Access Manager” and click on the “New Policy Wizard”.

Step 2. Select an AWS account you are going to work with.

Step 3. Create your IAM user and name it.

Step 4. Set up permissions for your IAM user. Just choose an appropriate option. For example purposes we’ve chosen to grant read and write to selected buckets access to our IAM user. Note: if you don’t want your user to see a list of all of your S3 buckets, uncheck the “Allow user to access to AWS console” box. It will provide you with better security level.

Step 5. Select buckets to be used in this access policy.

Step 6. Preview or modify created access policy script.

Our created policy script looks like this:
{
 "Statement": [
{
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": [
"s3:ListBucket",
"s3:GetBucketAcl",
"s3:GetBucketVersioning",
"s3:GetBucketRequestPayment",
"s3:GetBucketLocation",
"s3:GetBucketPolicy"
],
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::cloudberry.tonny2",
"Condition": {}
},
{
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": [
"s3:GetObject",
"s3:PutObject",
"s3:GetObjectAcl",
"s3:PutObjectAcl"
],
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::cloudberry.tonny2/*",
"Condition": {}
}
]
}
Please, note that this policy script was created for bucket cloudberry.tonny2. You can use it but ensure to replace a bucket name with a correct name of your bucket.
Step 7. Overview the list of your operations before the actual start. Click “Next” to proceed.
Step 8. After all the steps are completed you'll see the summary window. Now you’ve created your IAM user with limited permissions. To let this user backup with CloudBerry Backup you have to create Access and Secret Keys for him.
Creating Access Keys
Step 1. Open the “Access Manager” in CloudBerry Explorer PRO.

Step 2. Choose your AWS account.

Step 3. Right click on your IAM user and choose “Manage Access Keys”.

Step 4. In the opened window click “Create”. Access Key and Secret Key for your IAM user will be generated automatically.

Step 5. Сopy your credentials to clipboard or save it to a file.

Applying IAM keys to CloudBerry Backup
1. Open your CloudBerry Backup. In the “File” menu choose “Amazon S3 account…”.

2. Create a new account or edit existing one.

3. In the opened window insert previously created Access and Secret Keys and type a bucket name manually as the new user doesn't have a right to list buckets.

Now your CloudBerry Backup user will have access with configured permissions only to specified location in your S3 account.
