Note : the list of resources Hava requests access to ensures the most detailed diagrams and logging of environment changes, which is an incredibly powerful tool to quickly resolve environment changes that may have caused unforeseen issues in your production environment.
You can of course remove any access you do not feel comfortable with, bearing in mind, that may detract from the detailed analysis of your AWS environment both now and when new features are released.
Then click "Review Policy" & Name the new policy
Click "Create Policy" and the new policy will be created.
This process happened in a separate browser window, so return to the window where you were creating the new cross account role :
Press the refresh button & filter for the name you gave the new policy :
Select "Next:Tags" - you can skip this
Select "Next: Review" :
Click "Create Role" then select the new role from the list displayed.
Copy the Role ARN
Paste the Role ARN into the Hava dialogue box, add an optional name and click "Import"
Hava will connect to your environment and pull back the resources and relationships between them and build a complete visualisation of your environment.
From this point on Hava will sync with your AWS environment every periodically and keep track of any structural changes from a VPS level down.
