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
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
to paginate the results.
For PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to SimulateCustomPolicyAsync.
