We are not able to find more details on necessary IAM s3 permissions for registering cloud data store on Register your data with ArcGIS Server using Manager—Documentation | ArcGIS Enterprise. We are trying to register cloud data store on 10.6.1 version of ArcGIS Server.

With our current IAM role we are getting the following error:

Access Denied (Service: Amazon S3; Status Code: 403; Error Code: AccessDenied; Request ID: 0555D62FC9FC07E0; S3 Extended Request ID: enaaUZXbKxAz9T7Vw9KYEHReasPC3m9ldmXNFVd3/6rpveuc71yi9TArHzGlk3bhl4Exp0/Da+s=)

Any information would be very helpful and appreciated.

Just came across the same problem. Resolution as follows:

1.) Create an IAM role (trusted entity = EC2, policy = S3 full access [or locked down if you prefer])

2.) To your data store bucket, add bucket policy allowing access from your role to S3

3.) Attach IAM role to EC2 instance

This assumes your ArcGIS Server is running on EC2.
