Snapshot sharing within AWS Account

0

Greetings from Vancouver Island!

I know you can share Snapshots between accounts but I'd like to share a snapshot with another IAM user on the same account. Is that possible for is the only way to accomplish the task to to make the snapshot public.

Thanks,

Rick

As the IAM user is in the same account, they just need sufficient permissions for EBS snapshots. So as long as the IAM user has permissions in an attached policy like ec2:DescribeSnapshots, ec2:CreateSnapshot, ec2:DeleteSnapshot, and so on then that should be all that's required.

Worth mentioning too that if the snapshot is emncrypted with KMS then the IAM user will need access to the keys as well.
