Monitoring AWS IAM with New Relic Infrastructure

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables secure control access to AWS services and resources across your user base. You can use this data for security or organizational purposes. It’s particularly useful for large groups working concurrently on projects in AWS.

What you can monitor with our AWS IAM integration

Group information

Check a group’s users and overall policy settings.


Keep track of your policies and any changes.


See an overview of a single user’s permissions.

Know what’s happening with your AWS Identity and Access Management

Our dashboard and monitoring tools don’t capture performance metrics for AWS IAM because there aren’t traditional metrics for us to track. Instead, we monitor the state of your policies and roles over time, so you can use them as a log of who had access, when they used it, and what permissions or requirements they dealt with.

See your AWS IAM metrics in pre-built dashboards

Visualize all your data, easily filter to a specific host, and correlate with other performance metrics.
