AWS IAM role has administrative privileges and is inactive


If an IAM role is highly privileged or has administrative privileges and is inactive, this may indicate the role is not regularly used and may be removed.


IAM roles should be scoped down to have the fewest privileges needed to perform their function. In the event a role has not been used for an extended period of time, this may indicate that the role is no longer needed and can be removed.


Determine if the role is needed for a particular function and if not, remove it.
