Installing the client library in your codebase#

IAM Zero can capture permission errors when you are developing services which use cloud resources, and recommend least-privilege policies automatically. To do this we provide a client library which can be installed in your project.

The client libraries are lightweight and use the same techniques the error-tracking libraries like Sentry and BugSnag to detect issues. They are also designed to be added and removed easily, so you can add the client while developing a service and then remove it once you're happy with the IAM policies you've built for it.

To start capturing permissions errors, install the IAM Zero client library:

pip install iamzero

Then, initialise IAM Zero as early as possible in your program's startup script:

import iamzero
