Hi all,

Does anyone know what permissions are required in order to retrieve Cloudwatch metrics using the AWS Cloudwatch monitor (a part of the Amazon AWS Fastpack: https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/...

Thanks,

Andrew

I would hope it only needs to be in a role with at most the CloudWatchReadOnlyAccess policy attached but can't say for sure nor test that.

That's what I thought as well, but it does not appear to be the only permission that is required.

When I attempt to run the plugin, it gives the error:

Status: 501 (Could not setup due to AWS Error)

Message: You are not authorized to perform this operation. (Service: AmazonEC2; Status Code: 403; Error Code: UnauthorizedOperation; Request ID: ...)
