Understanding Policy Summaries in the AWS Management Console

The IAM console includes a table that summarizes the access level, resources, and conditions allowed or denied for each service within a policy. This policy summary is included on the Policies page for managed policies and on the Users page for policies that are attached to a user. For a deeper understanding of each service within a policy summary, you can choose the name of the service to view a service summary. A service summary outlines the resources and conditions that each policy allows or denies for each action in the selected service.
