Splunk App for AWS: What are the user permissions needed to be able to configure this app?

I'm looking to use the remote target feature of the app to configure the inputs for this app. However, I'd prefer not to use the built in or my own administrator account, so I was planning on creating a system user to handle this.

Do I have to give this account full administrator permissions? Or am I able to just give it read and write access to the App & Add-on on the search head and heavy forwarder and will that work OK?

Thanks in the advance for the help!

Only admin can configure AWS account and inputs in AWS app v4.2 and AWS addon v4.1. Please wait for next release. It has been considered already.
