Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using IAM

var iam = new AWS.IAM();
iam.addClientIDToOpenIDConnectProvider(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the IAM object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var iam = new AWS.IAM({apiVersion: '2010-05-08'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the iam service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  iam: '2010-05-08',
  // other service API versions
};

var iam = new AWS.IAM();

Version:

  • 2010-05-08

Waiter Resource States

This service supports a list of resource states that can be polled using the waitFor() method. The resource states are:

instanceProfileExists, userExists

Constructor Details

new AWS.IAM(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Constructs a service object. This object has one method for each API operation.

Examples:

Constructing a IAM object

var iam = new AWS.IAM({apiVersion: '2010-05-08'});

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.IAM.region for more information.

  • maxRetries (Integer)

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.IAM.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.IAM.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).
    • xhrWithCredentials [Boolean] — Sets the "withCredentials" property of an XMLHttpRequest object. Used in the browser environment only. Defaults to false.
  • apiVersion (String, Date)

    a String in YYYY-MM-DD format (or a date) that represents the latest possible API version that can be used in all services (unless overridden by apiVersions). Specify 'latest' to use the latest possible version.

  • apiVersions (map<String, String|Date>)

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time. Note that this configuration option can only be applied to the global AWS.config object and cannot be overridden in service-specific configuration. Defaults to 0 milliseconds.

  • signatureVersion (String)

    the signature version to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration). Possible values are: 'v2', 'v3', 'v4'.

  • signatureCache (Boolean)

    whether the signature to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration) is cached. Only applies to the signature version 'v4'. Defaults to true.

  • dynamoDbCrc32 (Boolean)

    whether to validate the CRC32 checksum of HTTP response bodies returned by DynamoDB. Default: true.

Examples:

To change the password for your IAM user


/* The following command changes the password for the current IAM user. */

 var params = {
  NewPassword: "]35d/{pB9Fo9wJ", 
  OldPassword: "3s0K_;xh4~8XXI"
 };

    • OldPassword — (String)

      The IAM user's current password.

    • NewPassword — (String)

      The new password. The new password must conform to the AWS account's password policy, if one exists.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of almost any printable ASCII character from the space (\u0020) through the end of the ASCII character range (\u00FF). You can also include the tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D) characters. Although any of these characters are valid in a password, note that many tools, such as the AWS Management Console, might restrict the ability to enter certain characters because they have special meaning within that tool.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createAccessKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates a new AWS secret access key and corresponding AWS access key ID for the specified user. The default status for new keys is Active.

If you do not specify a user name, IAM determines the user name implicitly based on the AWS access key ID signing the request. Because this action works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this action to manage root credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.

For information about limits on the number of keys you can create, see Limitations on IAM Entities in the IAM User Guide.

To ensure the security of your AWS account, the secret access key is accessible only during key and user creation. You must save the key (for example, in a text file) if you want to be able to access it again. If a secret key is lost, you can delete the access keys for the associated user and then create new keys.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To create an access key for an IAM user


/* The following command creates an access key (access key ID and secret access key) for the IAM user named Bob. */

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createOpenIDConnectProvider(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates an IAM entity to describe an identity provider (IdP) that supports OpenID Connect (OIDC).

The OIDC provider that you create with this operation can be used as a principal in a role's trust policy to establish a trust relationship between AWS and the OIDC provider.

When you create the IAM OIDC provider, you specify the URL of the OIDC identity provider (IdP) to trust, a list of client IDs (also known as audiences) that identify the application or applications that are allowed to authenticate using the OIDC provider, and a list of thumbprints of the server certificate(s) that the IdP uses. You get all of this information from the OIDC IdP that you want to use for access to AWS.

Note: Because trust for the OIDC provider is ultimately derived from the IAM provider that this action creates, it is a best practice to limit access to the CreateOpenIDConnectProvider action to highly-privileged users.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To create an instance profile


/* The following example defines a new OIDC provider in IAM with a client ID of my-application-id and pointing at the server with a URL of https://server.example.com. */

 var params = {
  ClientIDList: [
     "my-application-id"
  ], 
  ThumbprintList: [
     "3768084dfb3d2b68b7897bf5f565da8efEXAMPLE"
  ], 
  Url: "https://server.example.com"
 };
 iam.createOpenIDConnectProvider(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    OpenIDConnectProviderArn: "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:oidc-provider/server.example.com"
   }
   */
 });

Calling the createOpenIDConnectProvider operation

var params = {
  ThumbprintList: [ /* required */
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ],
  Url: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  ClientIDList: [
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ]
};
iam.createOpenIDConnectProvider(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Url — (String)

      The URL of the identity provider. The URL must begin with "https://" and should correspond to the iss claim in the provider's OpenID Connect ID tokens. Per the OIDC standard, path components are allowed but query parameters are not. Typically the URL consists of only a host name, like "https://server.example.org" or "https://example.com".

      You cannot register the same provider multiple times in a single AWS account. If you try to submit a URL that has already been used for an OpenID Connect provider in the AWS account, you will get an error.

    • ClientIDList — (Array<String>)

      A list of client IDs (also known as audiences). When a mobile or web app registers with an OpenID Connect provider, they establish a value that identifies the application. (This is the value that's sent as the client_id parameter on OAuth requests.)

      You can register multiple client IDs with the same provider. For example, you might have multiple applications that use the same OIDC provider. You cannot register more than 100 client IDs with a single IAM OIDC provider.

      There is no defined format for a client ID. The CreateOpenIDConnectProviderRequest action accepts client IDs up to 255 characters long.

    • ThumbprintList — (Array<String>)

      A list of server certificate thumbprints for the OpenID Connect (OIDC) identity provider's server certificate(s). Typically this list includes only one entry. However, IAM lets you have up to five thumbprints for an OIDC provider. This lets you maintain multiple thumbprints if the identity provider is rotating certificates.

      The server certificate thumbprint is the hex-encoded SHA-1 hash value of the X.509 certificate used by the domain where the OpenID Connect provider makes its keys available. It is always a 40-character string.

      You must provide at least one thumbprint when creating an IAM OIDC provider. For example, if the OIDC provider is server.example.com and the provider stores its keys at "https://keys.server.example.com/openid-connect", the thumbprint string would be the hex-encoded SHA-1 hash value of the certificate used by https://keys.server.example.com.

      For more information about obtaining the OIDC provider's thumbprint, see Obtaining the Thumbprint for an OpenID Connect Provider in the IAM User Guide.

createServiceLinkedRole(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates an IAM role that is linked to a specific AWS service. The service controls the attached policies and when the role can be deleted. This helps ensure that the service is not broken by an unexpectedly changed or deleted role, which could put your AWS resources into an unknown state. Allowing the service to control the role helps improve service stability and proper cleanup when a service and its role are no longer needed.

The name of the role is autogenerated by combining the string that you specify for the AWSServiceName parameter with the string that you specify for the CustomSuffix parameter. The resulting name must be unique in your account or the request fails.

To attach a policy to this service-linked role, you must make the request using the AWS service that depends on this role.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the createServiceLinkedRole operation

var params = {
  AWSServiceName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  CustomSuffix: 'STRING_VALUE',
  Description: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
iam.createServiceLinkedRole(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • AWSServiceName — (String)

      The AWS service to which this role is attached. You use a string similar to a URL but without the http:// in front. For example: elasticbeanstalk.amazonaws.com

    • Description — (String)

      The description of the role.

    • CustomSuffix — (String)

      A string that you provide, which is combined with the service name to form the complete role name. If you make multiple requests for the same service, then you must supply a different CustomSuffix for each request. Otherwise the request fails with a duplicate role name error. For example, you could add -1 or -debug to the suffix.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

            The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user's password was last used to sign in to an AWS website. For a list of AWS websites that capture a user's last sign-in time, see the Credential Reports topic in the Using IAM guide. If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

            • The user never had a password.

            • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

            A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

            This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

        • EnableDate — (Date)

          The date and time on which the virtual MFA device was enabled.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteOpenIDConnectProvider(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Deletes an OpenID Connect identity provider (IdP) resource object in IAM.

Deleting an IAM OIDC provider resource does not update any roles that reference the provider as a principal in their trust policies. Any attempt to assume a role that references a deleted provider fails.

This action is idempotent; it does not fail or return an error if you call the action for a provider that does not exist.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the deleteOpenIDConnectProvider operation

var params = {
  OpenIDConnectProviderArn: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deletePolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Deletes the specified managed policy.

Before you can delete a managed policy, you must first detach the policy from all users, groups, and roles that it is attached to, and you must delete all of the policy's versions. The following steps describe the process for deleting a managed policy:

  • Detach the policy from all users, groups, and roles that the policy is attached to, using the DetachUserPolicy, DetachGroupPolicy, or DetachRolePolicy APIs. To list all the users, groups, and roles that a policy is attached to, use ListEntitiesForPolicy.

  • Delete all versions of the policy using DeletePolicyVersion. To list the policy's versions, use ListPolicyVersions. You cannot use DeletePolicyVersion to delete the version that is marked as the default version. You delete the policy's default version in the next step of the process.

  • Delete the policy (this automatically deletes the policy's default version) using this API.

For information about managed policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the deletePolicy operation

var params = {
  PolicyArn: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
iam.deletePolicy(params, function(err, data) {

Deleting the provider resource from IAM does not update any roles that reference the SAML provider resource's ARN as a principal in their trust policies. Any attempt to assume a role that references a non-existent provider resource ARN fails.

Note: This operation requires Signature Version 4.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the deleteSAMLProvider operation

var params = {
  SAMLProviderArn: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
iam.deleteSAMLProvider(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • SAMLProviderArn — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SAML provider to delete.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteServerCertificate(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Deletes the specified server certificate.

For more information about working with server certificates, including a list of AWS services that can use the server certificates that you manage with IAM, go to Working with Server Certificates in the IAM User Guide.

If you are using a server certificate with Elastic Load Balancing, deleting the certificate could have implications for your application. If Elastic Load Balancing doesn't detect the deletion of bound certificates, it may continue to use the certificates. This could cause Elastic Load Balancing to stop accepting traffic. We recommend that you remove the reference to the certificate from Elastic Load Balancing before using this command to delete the certificate. For more information, go to DeleteLoadBalancerListeners in the Elastic Load Balancing API Reference.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the deleteServerCertificate operation

var params = {
  ServerCertificateName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
iam.deleteServerCertificate(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • ServerCertificateName — (String)

      The name of the server certificate you want to delete.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deleteServiceLinkedRole(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Submits a service-linked role deletion request and returns a DeletionTaskId, which you can use to check the status of the deletion. Before you call this operation, confirm that the role has no active sessions and that any resources used by the role in the linked service are deleted. If you call this operation more than once for the same service-linked role and an earlier deletion task is not complete, then the DeletionTaskId of the earlier request is returned.

If you submit a deletion request for a service-linked role whose linked service is still accessing a resource, then the deletion task fails. If it fails, the GetServiceLinkedRoleDeletionStatus API operation returns the reason for the failure, including the resources that must be deleted. To delete the service-linked role, you must first remove those resources from the linked service and then submit the deletion request again. Resources are specific to the service that is linked to the role. For more information about removing resources from a service, see the AWS documentation for your service.

For more information about service-linked roles, see Roles Terms and Concepts: AWS Service-Linked Role in the IAM User Guide.

getAccountAuthorizationDetails(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Retrieves information about all IAM users, groups, roles, and policies in your AWS account, including their relationships to one another. Use this API to obtain a snapshot of the configuration of IAM permissions (users, groups, roles, and policies) in your account.

You can optionally filter the results using the Filter parameter. You can paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getAccountAuthorizationDetails operation

var params = {
  Filter: [
    User | Role | Group | LocalManagedPolicy | AWSManagedPolicy,
    /* more items */
  ],
  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxItems: 0
};
iam.getAccountAuthorizationDetails(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Filter — (Array<String>)

      A list of entity types used to filter the results. Only the entities that match the types you specify are included in the output. Use the value LocalManagedPolicy to include customer managed policies.

      The format for this parameter is a comma-separated (if more than one) list of strings. Each string value in the list must be one of the valid values listed below.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PolicyInputList — (Array<String>)

      A list of policies for which you want the list of context keys referenced in those policies. Each document is specified as a string containing the complete, valid JSON text of an IAM policy.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ContextKeyNames — (Array<String>)

        The list of context keys that are referenced in the input policies.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

getContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Gets a list of all of the context keys referenced in all of the IAM policies attached to the specified IAM entity. The entity can be an IAM user, group, or role. If you specify a user, then the request also includes all of the policies attached to groups that the user is a member of.

You can optionally include a list of one or more additional policies, specified as strings. If you want to include only a list of policies by string, use GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy instead.

Note: This API discloses information about the permissions granted to other users. If you do not want users to see other user's permissions, then consider allowing them to use GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy instead.

Context keys are variables maintained by AWS and its services that provide details about the context of an API query request, and can be evaluated by testing against a value in an IAM policy. Use GetContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy to understand what key names and values you must supply when you call SimulatePrincipalPolicy.

Examples:

Calling the getContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy operation

var params = {
  PolicySourceArn: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  PolicyInputList: [
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ]
};
iam.getContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PolicySourceArn — (String)

      The ARN of a user, group, or role whose policies contain the context keys that you want listed. If you specify a user, the list includes context keys that are found in all policies attached to the user as well as to all groups that the user is a member of. If you pick a group or a role, then it includes only those context keys that are found in policies attached to that entity. Note that all parameters are shown in unencoded form here for clarity, but must be URL encoded to be included as a part of a real HTML request.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • PolicyInputList — (Array<String>)

getGroup(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns a list of IAM users that are in the specified IAM group. You can paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getGroup operation

var params = {
  GroupName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxItems: 0
};
iam.getGroup(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • GroupName — (String)

      The name of the group.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Group — (map)

        A structure that contains details about the group.

        • Pathrequired — (String)

          The path to the group. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • GroupNamerequired — (String)

          The friendly name that identifies the group.

        • GroupIdrequired — (String)

          The stable and unique string identifying the group. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • Arnrequired — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) specifying the group. For more information about ARNs and how to use them in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • CreateDaterequired — (Date)

          The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the group was created.

      • Users — (Array<map>)

        A list of users in the group.

        • Pathrequired — (String)

          The path to the user. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • UserNamerequired — (String)

          The friendly name identifying the user.

        • UserIdrequired — (String)

          The stable and unique string identifying the user. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • Arnrequired — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the user. For more information about ARNs and how to use ARNs in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • CreateDaterequired — (Date)

          The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user was created.

        • PasswordLastUsed — (Date)

          The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user's password was last used to sign in to an AWS website. For a list of AWS websites that capture a user's last sign-in time, see the Credential Reports topic in the Using IAM guide. If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

          • The user never had a password.

          • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

          A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

          This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

getGroupPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Retrieves the specified inline policy document that is embedded in the specified IAM group.

Note: Policies returned by this API are URL-encoded compliant with RFC 3986. You can use a URL decoding method to convert the policy back to plain JSON text. For example, if you use Java, you can use the decode method of the java.net.URLDecoder utility class in the Java SDK. Other languages and SDKs provide similar functionality.

An IAM group can also have managed policies attached to it. To retrieve a managed policy document that is attached to a group, use GetPolicy to determine the policy's default version, then use GetPolicyVersion to retrieve the policy document.

For more information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

getPolicyVersion(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Retrieves information about the specified version of the specified managed policy, including the policy document.

Note: Policies returned by this API are URL-encoded compliant with RFC 3986. You can use a URL decoding method to convert the policy back to plain JSON text. For example, if you use Java, you can use the decode method of the java.net.URLDecoder utility class in the Java SDK. Other languages and SDKs provide similar functionality.

To list the available versions for a policy, use ListPolicyVersions.

This API retrieves information about managed policies. To retrieve information about an inline policy that is embedded in a user, group, or role, use the GetUserPolicy, GetGroupPolicy, or GetRolePolicy API.

For more information about the types of policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

For more information about managed policy versions, see Versioning for Managed Policies in the IAM User Guide.

If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

          • The user never had a password.

          • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

          A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

          This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

An IAM user can also have managed policies attached to it. To retrieve a managed policy document that is attached to a user, use GetPolicy to determine the policy's default version, then use GetPolicyVersion to retrieve the policy document.

For more information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

Examples:

Calling the getUserPolicy operation

var params = {
  PolicyName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
iam.getUserPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • UserName — (String)

      The name of the user who the policy is associated with.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

    • PolicyName — (String)

      The name of the policy document to get.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-+

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • UserName — (String)

        The user the policy is associated with.

      • PolicyName — (String)

        The name of the policy.

      • PolicyDocument — (String)

        The policy document.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listAccessKeys(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns information about the access key IDs associated with the specified IAM user. If there are none, the action returns an empty list.

Although each user is limited to a small number of keys, you can still paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters.

If the UserName field is not specified, the UserName is determined implicitly based on the AWS access key ID used to sign the request. Because this action works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this action to manage root credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.

Note: To ensure the security of your AWS account, the secret access key is accessible only during key and user creation.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To list the access key IDs for an IAM user


/* The following command lists the access keys IDs for the IAM user named Alice. */

 var params = {
  UserName: "Alice"
 };
 iam.listAccessKeys(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    AccessKeyMetadata: [
       {
      AccessKeyId: "AKIA111111111EXAMPLE", 
      CreateDate: <Date Representation>, 
      Status: "Active", 
      UserName: "Alice"
     }, 
       {
      AccessKeyId: "AKIA222222222EXAMPLE", 
      CreateDate: <Date Representation>, 
      Status: "Active", 
      UserName: "Alice"
     }
    ]
   }
   */
 });

Calling the listAccessKeys operation

var params = {
  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxItems: 0,
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
iam.listAccessKeys(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • UserName — (String)

      The name of the user.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

          The ID for this access key.

        • Status — (String)

          The status of the access key. Active means the key is valid for API calls; Inactive means it is not.

          Possible values include:
          • "Active"
          • "Inactive"
        • CreateDate — (Date)

          The date when the access key was created.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

You can paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters. If there are no inline policies embedded with the specified group, the action returns an empty list.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To list the in-line policies for an IAM group


/* The following command lists the names of in-line policies that are embedded in the IAM group named Admins. */

 var params = {
  GroupName: "Admins"
 };
 iam.listGroupPolicies(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    PolicyNames: [
       "AdminRoot", 
       "KeyPolicy"
    ]
   }
   */
 });

Calling the listGroupPolicies operation

var params = {
  GroupName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxItems: 0
};
iam.listGroupPolicies(params, function(err, data) {

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • GroupName — (String)

      The name of the group to list policies for.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

  Marker: 'STRING_VALUE',
  MaxItems: 0,
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
iam.listMFADevices(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • UserName — (String)

      The name of the user whose MFA devices you want to list.

      This parameter allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: =,.@-

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • MFADevices — (Array<map>)

        A list of MFA devices.

        • UserNamerequired — (String)

          The user with whom the MFA device is associated.

        • SerialNumberrequired — (String)

          The serial number that uniquely identifies the MFA device. For virtual MFA devices, the serial number is the device ARN.

        • EnableDaterequired — (Date)

          The date when the MFA device was enabled for the user.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

          The date when the server certificate was uploaded.

        • Expiration — (Date)

          The date on which the certificate is set to expire.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listServiceSpecificCredentials(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns information about the service-specific credentials associated with the specified IAM user. If there are none, the action returns an empty list. The service-specific credentials returned by this action are used only for authenticating the IAM user to a specific service. For more information about using service-specific credentials to authenticate to an AWS service, see Set Up service-specific credentials in the AWS CodeCommit User Guide.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the listServiceSpecificCredentials operation

var params = {
  ServiceName: 'STRING_VALUE',
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
iam.listServiceSpecificCredentials(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • UserName — (String)

      The name of the user whose service-specific credentials you want information about. If this value is not specified then the operation assumes the user whose credentials are used to call the operation.

    • ServiceName — (String)

      Filters the returned results to only those for the specified AWS service. If not specified, then AWS returns service-specific credentials for all services.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ServiceSpecificCredentials — (Array<map>)

        A list of structures that each contain details about a service-specific credential.

        • UserNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the IAM user associated with the service-specific credential.

        • Statusrequired — (String)

          The status of the service-specific credential. Active means the key is valid for API calls, while Inactive means it is not.

          Possible values include:
          • "Active"
          • "Inactive"
        • ServiceUserNamerequired — (String)

          The generated user name for the service-specific credential.

        • CreateDaterequired — (Date)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listSigningCertificates(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns information about the signing certificates associated with the specified IAM user. If there are none, the action returns an empty list.

Although each user is limited to a small number of signing certificates, you can still paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters.

If the UserName field is not specified, the user name is determined implicitly based on the AWS access key ID used to sign the request for this API. Because this action works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this action to manage root credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To list the signing certificates for an IAM user


/* The following command lists the signing certificates for the IAM user named Bob. */

 var params = {
  UserName: "Bob"
 };
 iam.listSigningCertificates(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    Certificates: [
       {
      CertificateBody: "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----<certificate-body>-----END CERTIFICATE-----", 
      CertificateId: "TA7SMP42TDN5Z26OBPJE7EXAMPLE", 
      Status: "Active", 
      UploadDate: <Date Representation>, 
      UserName: "Bob"

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PathPrefix — (String)

      The path prefix for filtering the results. For example: /division_abc/subdivision_xyz/, which would get all user names whose path starts with /division_abc/subdivision_xyz/.

      This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/), listing all user names. This paramater allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of either a forward slash (/) by itself or a string that must begin and end with forward slashes, containing any ASCII character from the ! (\u0021) thru the DEL character (\u007F), including most punctuation characters, digits, and upper and lowercased letters.

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Users — (Array<map>)

        A list of users.

        • Pathrequired — (String)

          The path to the user. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • UserNamerequired — (String)

          The friendly name identifying the user.

        • UserIdrequired — (String)

          The stable and unique string identifying the user. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • Arnrequired — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the user. For more information about ARNs and how to use ARNs in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

        • CreateDaterequired — (Date)

          The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user was created.

        • PasswordLastUsed — (Date)

For a list of AWS websites that capture a user's last sign-in time, see the Credential Reports topic in the Using IAM guide. If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

          • The user never had a password.

          • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

          A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

          This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listVirtualMFADevices(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Lists the virtual MFA devices defined in the AWS account by assignment status. If you do not specify an assignment status, the action returns a list of all virtual MFA devices. Assignment status can be Assigned, Unassigned, or Any.

            The path to the user. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

          • UserNamerequired — (String)

            The friendly name identifying the user.

          • UserIdrequired — (String)

            The stable and unique string identifying the user. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

          • Arnrequired — (String)

            The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the user. For more information about ARNs and how to use ARNs in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

          • CreateDaterequired — (Date)

            The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user was created.

          • PasswordLastUsed — (Date)

            The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the user's password was last used to sign in to an AWS website. For a list of AWS websites that capture a user's last sign-in time, see the Credential Reports topic in the Using IAM guide. If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

            • The user never had a password.

            • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

            A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

            This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

        • EnableDate — (Date)

          The date and time on which the virtual MFA device was enabled.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

putGroupPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Adds or updates an inline policy document that is embedded in the specified IAM group.

A user can also have managed policies attached to it. To attach a managed policy to a group, use AttachGroupPolicy. To create a new managed policy, use CreatePolicy. For information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

For information about limits on the number of inline policies that you can embed in a group, see Limitations on IAM Entities in the IAM User Guide.

Note: Because policy documents can be large, you should use POST rather than GET when calling PutGroupPolicy. For general information about using the Query API with IAM, go to Making Query Requests in the IAM User Guide.

putRolePolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Adds or updates an inline policy document that is embedded in the specified IAM role.

When you embed an inline policy in a role, the inline policy is used as part of the role's access (permissions) policy. The role's trust policy is created at the same time as the role, using CreateRole. You can update a role's trust policy using UpdateAssumeRolePolicy. For more information about IAM roles, go to Using Roles to Delegate Permissions and Federate Identities.

A role can also have a managed policy attached to it. To attach a managed policy to a role, use AttachRolePolicy. To create a new managed policy, use CreatePolicy. For information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

For information about limits on the number of inline policies that you can embed with a role, see Limitations on IAM Entities in the IAM User Guide.

simulateCustomPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Simulate how a set of IAM policies and optionally a resource-based policy works with a list of API actions and AWS resources to determine the policies' effective permissions. The policies are provided as strings.

The simulation does not perform the API actions; it only checks the authorization to determine if the simulated policies allow or deny the actions.

If you want to simulate existing policies attached to an IAM user, group, or role, use SimulatePrincipalPolicy instead.

Context keys are variables maintained by AWS and its services that provide details about the context of an API query request. You can use the Condition element of an IAM policy to evaluate context keys. To get the list of context keys that the policies require for correct simulation, use GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy.

If the output is long, you can use MaxItems and Marker parameters to paginate the results.

};
iam.simulateCustomPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PolicyInputList — (Array<String>)

      A list of policy documents to include in the simulation. Each document is specified as a string containing the complete, valid JSON text of an IAM policy. Do not include any resource-based policies in this parameter. Any resource-based policy must be submitted with the ResourcePolicy parameter. The policies cannot be "scope-down" policies, such as you could include in a call to GetFederationToken or one of the AssumeRole APIs to restrict what a user can do while using the temporary credentials.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).

    • ActionNames — (Array<String>)

      A list of names of API actions to evaluate in the simulation. Each action is evaluated against each resource. Each action must include the service identifier, such as iam:CreateUser.

    • ResourceArns — (Array<String>)

      A list of ARNs of AWS resources to include in the simulation. If this parameter is not provided then the value defaults to * (all resources). Each API in the ActionNames parameter is evaluated for each resource in this list. The simulation determines the access result (allowed or denied) of each combination and reports it in the response.

      The simulation does not automatically retrieve policies for the specified resources. If you want to include a resource policy in the simulation, then you must include the policy as a string in the ResourcePolicy parameter.

      If you include a ResourcePolicy, then it must be applicable to all of the resources included in the simulation or you receive an invalid input error.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • ResourcePolicy — (String)

      A resource-based policy to include in the simulation provided as a string. Each resource in the simulation is treated as if it had this policy attached. You can include only one resource-based policy in a simulation.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).

    • ResourceOwner — (String)

      An AWS account ID that specifies the owner of any simulated resource that does not identify its owner in the resource ARN, such as an S3 bucket or object. If ResourceOwner is specified, it is also used as the account owner of any ResourcePolicy included in the simulation. If the ResourceOwner parameter is not specified, then the owner of the resources and the resource policy defaults to the account of the identity provided in CallerArn. This parameter is required only if you specify a resource-based policy and account that owns the resource is different from the account that owns the simulated calling user CallerArn.

    • CallerArn — (String)

      The ARN of the IAM user that you want to use as the simulated caller of the APIs. CallerArn is required if you include a ResourcePolicy so that the policy's Principal element has a value to use in evaluating the policy.

      You can specify only the ARN of an IAM user. You cannot specify the ARN of an assumed role, federated user, or a service principal.

    • ContextEntries — (Array<map>)

      A list of context keys and corresponding values for the simulation to use. Whenever a context key is evaluated in one of the simulated IAM permission policies, the corresponding value is supplied.

      • ContextKeyName — (String)

        The full name of a condition context key, including the service prefix. For example, aws:SourceIp or s3:VersionId.

      • ContextKeyValues — (Array<String>)

        The value (or values, if the condition context key supports multiple values) to provide to the simulation for use when the key is referenced by a Condition element in an input policy.

      • ContextKeyType — (String)

        The data type of the value (or values) specified in the ContextKeyValues parameter.

        Possible values include:
        • "string"
        • "stringList"
        • "numeric"
        • "numericList"
        • "boolean"
        • "booleanList"
        • "ip"
        • "ipList"
        • "binary"
        • "binaryList"
        • "date"
        • "dateList"
    • ResourceHandlingOption — (String)

      Specifies the type of simulation to run. Different APIs that support resource-based policies require different combinations of resources. By specifying the type of simulation to run, you enable the policy simulator to enforce the presence of the required resources to ensure reliable simulation results. If your simulation does not match one of the following scenarios, then you can omit this parameter. The following list shows each of the supported scenario values and the resources that you must define to run the simulation.

      Each of the EC2 scenarios requires that you specify instance, image, and security-group resources. If your scenario includes an EBS volume, then you must specify that volume as a resource. If the EC2 scenario includes VPC, then you must supply the network-interface resource. If it includes an IP subnet, then you must specify the subnet resource. For more information on the EC2 scenario options, see Supported Platforms in the AWS EC2 User Guide.

      • EC2-Classic-InstanceStore

        instance, image, security-group

      • EC2-Classic-EBS

        instance, image, security-group, volume

      • EC2-VPC-InstanceStore

        instance, image, security-group, network-interface

      • EC2-VPC-InstanceStore-Subnet

      • EC2-VPC-EBS

        instance, image, security-group, network-interface, volume

      • EC2-VPC-EBS-Subnet

        instance, image, security-group, network-interface, subnet, volume

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • EvaluationResults — (Array<map>)

        The results of the simulation.

        • EvalActionNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the API action tested on the indicated resource.

          The ARN of the resource that the indicated API action was tested on.

        • EvalDecisionrequired — (String)

          The result of the simulation.

          Possible values include:
          • "allowed"
          • "explicitDeny"
          • "implicitDeny"
        • MatchedStatements — (Array<map>)

          A list of the statements in the input policies that determine the result for this scenario. Remember that even if multiple statements allow the action on the resource, if only one statement denies that action, then the explicit deny overrides any allow, and the deny statement is the only entry included in the result.

          • SourcePolicyId — (String)

            The identifier of the policy that was provided as an input.

          • SourcePolicyType — (String)

            • Column — (Integer)

              The column in the line containing the specified position in the document.

        • MissingContextValues — (Array<String>)

          A list of context keys that are required by the included input policies but that were not provided by one of the input parameters. This list is used when the resource in a simulation is "*", either explicitly, or when the ResourceArns parameter blank. If you include a list of resources, then any missing context values are instead included under the ResourceSpecificResults section. To discover the context keys used by a set of policies, you can call GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy or GetContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy.

        • OrganizationsDecisionDetail — (map)

          A structure that details how AWS Organizations and its service control policies affect the results of the simulation. Only applies if the simulated user's account is part of an organization.

          • AllowedByOrganizations — (Boolean)

            Specifies whether the simulated action is allowed by the AWS Organizations service control policies that impact the simulated user's account.

        • EvalDecisionDetails — (map<String>)

          Additional details about the results of the evaluation decision. When there are both IAM policies and resource policies, this parameter explains how each set of policies contributes to the final evaluation decision. When simulating cross-account access to a resource, both the resource-based policy and the caller's IAM policy must grant access. See How IAM Roles Differ from Resource-based Policies

        • ResourceSpecificResults — (Array<map>)

          The individual results of the simulation of the API action specified in EvalActionName on each resource.

          • EvalResourceNamerequired — (String)

            • "explicitDeny"
            • "implicitDeny"
          • MatchedStatements — (Array<map>)

            A list of the statements in the input policies that determine the result for this part of the simulation. Remember that even if multiple statements allow the action on the resource, if any statement denies that action, then the explicit deny overrides any allow, and the deny statement is the only entry included in the result.

            • SourcePolicyId — (String)

              The identifier of the policy that was provided as an input.

            • SourcePolicyType — (String)

              • "role"
              • "aws-managed"
              • "user-managed"
              • "resource"
              • "none"
            • StartPosition — (map)

              The row and column of the beginning of the Statement in an IAM policy.

              • Line — (Integer)

              • Line — (Integer)

                The line containing the specified position in the document.

              • Column — (Integer)

                The column in the line containing the specified position in the document.

          • MissingContextValues — (Array<String>)

            A list of context keys that are required by the included input policies but that were not provided by one of the input parameters. This list is used when a list of ARNs is included in the ResourceArns parameter instead of "". If you do not specify individual resources, by setting ResourceArns to "" or by not including the ResourceArns parameter, then any missing context values are instead included under the EvaluationResults section. To discover the context keys used by a set of policies, you can call GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy or GetContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy.

          • EvalDecisionDetails — (map<String>)

            Additional details about the results of the evaluation decision. When there are both IAM policies and resource policies, this parameter explains how each set of policies contributes to the final evaluation decision. When simulating cross-account access to a resource, both the resource-based policy and the caller's IAM policy must grant access.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

simulatePrincipalPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Simulate how a set of IAM policies attached to an IAM entity works with a list of API actions and AWS resources to determine the policies' effective permissions. The entity can be an IAM user, group, or role. If you specify a user, then the simulation also includes all of the policies that are attached to groups that the user belongs to .

You can optionally include a list of one or more additional policies specified as strings to include in the simulation. If you want to simulate only policies specified as strings, use SimulateCustomPolicy instead.

You can also optionally include one resource-based policy to be evaluated with each of the resources included in the simulation.

The simulation does not perform the API actions, it only checks the authorization to determine if the simulated policies allow or deny the actions.

Note: This API discloses information about the permissions granted to other users. If you do not want users to see other user's permissions, then consider allowing them to use SimulateCustomPolicy instead.

Context keys are variables maintained by AWS and its services that provide details about the context of an API query request. You can use the Condition element of an IAM policy to evaluate context keys. To get the list of context keys that the policies require for correct simulation, use GetContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy.

If the output is long, you can use the MaxItems and Marker parameters to paginate the results.

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PolicySourceArn — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a user, group, or role whose policies you want to include in the simulation. If you specify a user, group, or role, the simulation includes all policies that are associated with that entity. If you specify a user, the simulation also includes all policies that are attached to any groups the user belongs to.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • PolicyInputList — (Array<String>)

      An optional list of additional policy documents to include in the simulation. Each document is specified as a string containing the complete, valid JSON text of an IAM policy.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).

    • ActionNames — (Array<String>)

      A list of names of API actions to evaluate in the simulation. Each action is evaluated for each resource. Each action must include the service identifier, such as iam:CreateUser.

    • ResourceArns — (Array<String>)

      A list of ARNs of AWS resources to include in the simulation. If this parameter is not provided then the value defaults to * (all resources). Each API in the ActionNames parameter is evaluated for each resource in this list. The simulation determines the access result (allowed or denied) of each combination and reports it in the response.

      The simulation does not automatically retrieve policies for the specified resources. If you want to include a resource policy in the simulation, then you must include the policy as a string in the ResourcePolicy parameter.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • ResourcePolicy — (String)

      A resource-based policy to include in the simulation provided as a string. Each resource in the simulation is treated as if it had this policy attached. You can include only one resource-based policy in a simulation.

      The regex pattern used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through end of the ASCII character range as well as the printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF). It also includes the special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D).

    • ResourceOwner — (String)

      An AWS account ID that specifies the owner of any simulated resource that does not identify its owner in the resource ARN, such as an S3 bucket or object. If ResourceOwner is specified, it is also used as the account owner of any ResourcePolicy included in the simulation. If the ResourceOwner parameter is not specified, then the owner of the resources and the resource policy defaults to the account of the identity provided in CallerArn. This parameter is required only if you specify a resource-based policy and account that owns the resource is different from the account that owns the simulated calling user CallerArn.

    • CallerArn — (String)

      The ARN of the IAM user that you want to specify as the simulated caller of the APIs. If you do not specify a CallerArn, it defaults to the ARN of the user that you specify in PolicySourceArn, if you specified a user. If you include both a PolicySourceArn (for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/David) and a CallerArn (for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/Bob), the result is that you simulate calling the APIs as Bob, as if Bob had David's policies.

      You can specify only the ARN of an IAM user. You cannot specify the ARN of an assumed role, federated user, or a service principal.

      CallerArn is required if you include a ResourcePolicy and the PolicySourceArn is not the ARN for an IAM user. This is required so that the resource-based policy's Principal element has a value to use in evaluating the policy.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • ContextEntries — (Array<map>)

      A list of context keys and corresponding values for the simulation to use. Whenever a context key is evaluated in one of the simulated IAM permission policies, the corresponding value is supplied.

    • ResourceHandlingOption — (String)

      Specifies the type of simulation to run. Different APIs that support resource-based policies require different combinations of resources. By specifying the type of simulation to run, you enable the policy simulator to enforce the presence of the required resources to ensure reliable simulation results. If your simulation does not match one of the following scenarios, then you can omit this parameter. The following list shows each of the supported scenario values and the resources that you must define to run the simulation.

      Each of the EC2 scenarios requires that you specify instance, image, and security-group resources. If your scenario includes an EBS volume, then you must specify that volume as a resource. If the EC2 scenario includes VPC, then you must supply the network-interface resource. If it includes an IP subnet, then you must specify the subnet resource.

    • MaxItems — (Integer)

      (Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

      If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

    • Marker — (String)

      Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

To discover the context keys used by a set of policies, you can call GetContextKeysForCustomPolicy or GetContextKeysForPrincipalPolicy.

          • EvalDecisionDetails — (map<String>)

            Additional details about the results of the evaluation decision. When there are both IAM policies and resource policies, this parameter explains how each set of policies contributes to the final evaluation decision. When simulating cross-account access to a resource, both the resource-based policy and the caller's IAM policy must grant access.

      • IsTruncated — (Boolean)

        A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

      • Marker — (String)

        When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

updateAccessKey(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Changes the status of the specified access key from Active to Inactive, or vice versa. This action can be used to disable a user's key as part of a key rotation work flow.

If the UserName field is not specified, the UserName is determined implicitly based on the AWS access key ID used to sign the request. Because this action works for access keys under the AWS account, you can use this action to manage root credentials even if the AWS account has no associated users.

For information about rotating keys, see Managing Keys and Certificates in the IAM User Guide.

updateOpenIDConnectProviderThumbprint(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Replaces the existing list of server certificate thumbprints associated with an OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider resource object with a new list of thumbprints.

The list that you pass with this action completely replaces the existing list of thumbprints. (The lists are not merged.)

Typically, you need to update a thumbprint only when the identity provider's certificate changes, which occurs rarely. However, if the provider's certificate does change, any attempt to assume an IAM role that specifies the OIDC provider as a principal fails until the certificate thumbprint is updated.

Note: Because trust for the OIDC provider is ultimately derived from the provider's certificate and is validated by the thumbprint, it is a best practice to limit access to the UpdateOpenIDConnectProviderThumbprint action to highly-privileged users.

Examples:

Calling the updateOpenIDConnectProviderThumbprint operation

var params = {
  OpenIDConnectProviderArn: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  ThumbprintList: [ /* required */
    'STRING_VALUE',
    /* more items */
  ]
};
iam.updateOpenIDConnectProviderThumbprint(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • OpenIDConnectProviderArn — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM OIDC provider resource object for which you want to update the thumbprint. You can get a list of OIDC provider ARNs by using the ListOpenIDConnectProviders action.

      For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference.

    • ThumbprintList — (Array<String>)

      A list of certificate thumbprints that are associated with the specified IAM OpenID Connect provider. For more information, see CreateOpenIDConnectProvider.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

uploadServerCertificate(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Uploads a server certificate entity for the AWS account. The server certificate entity includes a public key certificate, a private key, and an optional certificate chain, which should all be PEM-encoded.

We recommend that you use AWS Certificate Manager to provision, manage, and deploy your server certificates. With ACM you can request a certificate, deploy it to AWS resources, and let ACM handle certificate renewals for you. Certificates provided by ACM are free. For more information about using ACM, see the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide.

For more information about working with server certificates, including a list of AWS services that can use the server certificates that you manage with IAM, go to Working with Server Certificates in the IAM User Guide.

For information about the number of server certificates you can upload, see Limitations on IAM Entities and Objects in the IAM User Guide.

Note: Because the body of the public key certificate, private key, and the certificate chain can be large, you should use POST rather than GET when calling UploadServerCertificate. For information about setting up signatures and authorization through the API, go to Signing AWS API Requests in the AWS General Reference. For general information about using the Query API with IAM, go to Calling the API by Making HTTP Query Requests in the IAM User Guide.

Examples:

Waiting for the instanceProfileExists state

var params = {
  InstanceProfileName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
iam.waitFor('instanceProfileExists', params, function(err, data) {

If a password is used more than once in a five-minute span, only the first use is returned in this field. If the field is null (no value) then it indicates that they never signed in with a password. This can be because:

          • The user never had a password.

          • A password exists but has not been used since IAM started tracking this information on October 20th, 2014.

          A null does not mean that the user never had a password. Also, if the user does not currently have a password, but had one in the past, then this field contains the date and time the most recent password was used.

          This value is returned only in the GetUser and ListUsers actions.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.
