Hi,

I want to be able to grant a user access to a single bucket in my Amazon S3.  I have tried the results in this thread
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Web_Computing/Q_27780504.html

However when I copy/paste that into a user permission in IAM I get an error saying
"this is not a jbod command" or something like that.  Note I change it to reflect my bucket name.

Please advise!

Also.. do I need to put permissions on the bucket or on user accounts?

Hi,

You can use S3 Browser's simple Bucket Sharing Wizard:
http://s3browser.com/iam-bucket-sharing-wizard.php

It allows you to create sub-account under your main AWS account and grant permissions to the bucket.  No complicated policies, simple GUI Wizard.

If you would like to share the bucket with existing AWS account, check out these instructions: http://s3browser.com//bucket-sharing-tutorial.php

S3 Browser is free for personal use.

Thanks imoiseev however I am trying to give a IAM user in my account the permissions and even with the s3 browser it still doenst make much sense on how to accomplish this.

I want to allow a single user in my IAM to only have access to 1 of my buckets

Useraccount is MediaContent, bucket is MediaContent

Thanks!
