AWS Troubleshooting

The Billing section is empty when I generate an AWS document.

  • Billing is based on Cost Explorer, therefore you need to ensure Cost Explorer is activated
  • Once Cost Explorer is activated, you need to ensure the user you are using to log in has access to Cost Explorer. Typically, if you use a read-only role, it does not have access to Cost Explorer. If you want to only add Cost Explorer permissions, you can create a the following policy and add it to the read-only user:
{
	"Version": "2012-10-17",
	"Statement": [
		{
			"Effect": "Allow",
			"Action": [
				"ce:*"
			],
			"Resource": [
				"*"
			]
		}
	]
}

How can I improve the generated Diagrams?

I have created an IAM user with read-only access and cannot access the S3 bucket where I want to drop the document.

  • Create the following policy and add it to your IAM User:
{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "s3:*"
            ],
            "Resource": [
                "arn:aws:s3:::YOURS3Bucket"
            ]
        }
    ]
}
  • From the Storage Account, click on Permissions and then Bucket Policy. Ensure you have the following statement (replace the IAM User Arn and Resource)
{
    "Version": "2008-10-17",
    "Id": "Policy1335892530063",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Sid": "Stmt1335892526597",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": {
                "AWS": "arn:aws:iam::xxxx:user/xxxxxxx"
            },
            "Action": "s3:PutObject",
            "Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::yourS3Bucket/*"
        }
    ]
}

I want to extract the warnings from AWS Trusted Advisor. What rights are required?

  • Ensure that the user you have created has the following policy attached:
{
	"Version": "2012-10-17",
	"Statement": [
		{
			"Sid": "VisualEditor0",
			"Effect": "Allow",
			"Action": [
				"support:DescribeTrustedAdvisorCheckResult",
				"support:DescribeTrustedAdvisorChecks"
			],
			"Resource": "*"
		}
	]
}
