Error: is not authorized to perform ses sendemail

What's Causing This Error?

This error occurs when an AWS service such as a Lambda function is not authorized to send an email using Amazon SES.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve the error, you will need to attach a policy to the IAM role to allow the AWS resource to execute the ses:SendEmail action.

For example, if you wish to provide a Lambda function the permission to send an email using SES, you would have to create and attach an inline policy for the function's IAM role that allows the ses:SendEmail action. The inline policy is shown below.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 { "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement" : [ { "Sid": "Inline Policy for SES Send Email", "Effect": "Allow", "Resource" : "*", "Actions":[ "ses:SendEmail" ] } ] }

The inline policy shown above will ensure that the AWS service is allowed to execute the SendEmail action on an Amazon SES resource and will resolve the permission error.
