Instance Method Details

#attach_group(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Attaches the specified managed policy to the specified IAM group.

You use this API to attach a managed policy to a group. To embed an inline policy in a group, use PutGroupPolicy.

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

Examples:

Request syntax example with placeholder values


policy.attach_group({
  group_name: "groupNameType", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :group_name (required, String)

    The name (friendly name, not ARN) of the group to attach the policy to.

    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: =,.@-

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#attach_role(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Attaches the specified managed policy to the specified IAM role. When you attach a managed policy to a role, the managed policy becomes part of the role's permission (access) policy.

You cannot use a managed policy as the role's trust 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.

Use this API to attach a managed policy to a role. To embed an inline policy in a role, use PutRolePolicy. For more information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.

Examples:

Request syntax example with placeholder values


policy.attach_role({
  role_name: "roleNameType", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :role_name (required, String)

    The name (friendly name, not ARN) of the role to attach the policy to.

    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: _+=,.@-

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#attach_user(options = {}) ⇒ Struct

Attaches the specified managed policy to the specified user.

You use this API to attach a managed policy to a user. To embed an inline policy in a user, use PutUserPolicy.

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

Examples:

Request syntax example with placeholder values


policy.attach_user({
  user_name: "userNameType", # required
})

Options Hash (options):

  • :user_name (required, String)

    The name (friendly name, not ARN) of the IAM user to attach the policy to.

    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: =,.@-

Returns:

  • (Struct)

    Returns an empty response.

See Also:

#attached_groups(options = {}) ⇒ Collection<Group>

Returns a Collection of Group resources. No API requests are made until you call an enumerable method on the collection. Client#list_entities_for_policy will be called multiple times until every Group has been yielded.

Examples:

Request syntax example with placeholder values


policy.attached_groups({
  path_prefix: "pathType",
  marker: "markerType",
  max_items: 1,
})

Enumerating Group resources.

policy.attached_groups.each do |group|

  # yields at most 10 attached_groups
end

Options Hash (options):

  • :path_prefix (String)

    The path prefix for filtering the results. This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/), listing all entities.

    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.

  • :max_items (Integer) — default: 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.

Returns:

#=> "policyversion-version-id"

Options Hash (options):

  • :policy_document (required, String)

    The JSON policy document that you want to use as the content for this new version of the 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).

  • :set_as_default (Boolean)

    Specifies whether to set this version as the policy\'s default version.

    When this parameter is true, the new policy version becomes the operative version; that is, the version that is in effect for the IAM users, groups, and roles that the policy is attached to.

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

Returns:

#default_versionPolicyVersion?

Returns:

See Also:

#deleteStruct

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.
