  3. Select the AWSXRayDaemonWriteAccess policy and remove it

  4. Select Add permissions > Create inline Policy

    Attach Policies

  5. Click on the JSON tab and paste in the following policy. Make sure to change <account-id> to your aws account id.

        "Version": "2012-10-17",
        "Statement": [
                "Action": [
                "Effect": "Allow",
                "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::<account-id>:role/parallelcluster/*"
  6. Click Review Policy, give it a name like pcluster-attach-detach-policies and click Save.
