list-policy-versions

Description

Lists information about the versions of the specified managed policy, including the version that is currently set as the policy's default version.

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

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-policy-versions is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Versions

Synopsis

  list-policy-versions
--policy-arn <value>
[--max-items <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--policy-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM policy for which you want the versions.

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

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Examples

To list information about the versions of the specified managed policy

This example returns the list of available versions of the policy whose ARN is arn:aws:iam::123456789012:policy/MySamplePolicy:

aws iam list-policy-versions --policy-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:policy/MySamplePolicy

Output:

{
  "IsTruncated": false,
  "Versions": [
    {
      "CreateDate": "2015-06-02T23:19:44Z",
      "VersionId": "v2",
      "IsDefaultVersion": true
    },
    {
      "CreateDate": "2015-06-02T22:30:47Z",
      "VersionId": "v1",
      "IsDefaultVersion": false
    }
  ]
}

Output

Versions -> (list)

A list of policy versions.

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

(structure)

Contains information about a version of a managed policy.

This data type is used as a response element in the create-policy-version , get-policy-version , list-policy-versions , and get-account-authorization-details actions.

For more information about managed policies, refer to Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the Using IAM guide.

Document -> (string)

The policy document.

The policy document is returned in the response to the get-policy-version and get-account-authorization-details operations. It is not returned in the response to the create-policy-version or list-policy-versions operations.

VersionId -> (string)

The identifier for the policy version.

Policy version identifiers always begin with v (always lowercase). When a policy is created, the first policy version is v1 .

IsDefaultVersion -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the policy version is set as the policy's default version.

CreateDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format , when the policy version 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.
