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": [
"s3:CreateBucket",
"s3:ListBucket",
"s3:DeleteObject",
"s3:GetObject",
"s3:PutObject",
"s3:PutObjectAcl"
],
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::MY_BACKUPS_BUCKET/*",
"arn:aws:s3:::MY_BACKUPS_BUCKET"
]
},
{
"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.

Note:

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