Command: environment init
environment init is a helper command that downloads an AWS CloudFormation
stack template (in YAML). This template contains the role that is needed for the
managed service to manage resources in the target AWS account. The output is the
template text, which can be copied or redirected to a file.
Currently, only CloudFormation is supported, in the future there may be other templates or methods to set up the access.
The AWS documentation provides an article on how to create a stack using the AWS CLI tool.
We recommend reviewing the policy for restrictions, but note that by adding additional restrictions to the policy could break managed service functionality. (Currently this is not least privilege).
