To create an S3 storage user for SimpleBackups, the following minimum permissions are required to be available on the backup bucket of your choice:

"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Statement": [
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": [
"Resource": [
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": "s3:ListAllMyBuckets",
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::*"

The policy above can be used to only allow SimpleBackups to work on the backups bucket of your choice.

Don't forget to change MY_BACKUPS_BUCKET to the actual buckets you create for backups.


The CreateBucket is needed to be able to create the bucket if it does not exist.
