Actions, Resources, and Condition Keys for Manage Amazon API Gateway

Manage Amazon API Gateway (service prefix: apigateway) provides the following service-specific resources, actions, and condition context keys for use in IAM permission policies.


Actions Defined by Manage Amazon API Gateway

You can specify the following actions in the Action element of an IAM policy statement. By using policies, you define the permissions for anyone performing an operation in AWS. When you use an action in a policy, you usually allow or deny access to the API operation or CLI command with the same name. However, in some cases, a single action controls access to more than one operation. Alternatively, some operations require several different actions. For details about the columns in the following table, see The Actions Table.

Actions Description Access Level Resource Types (*required) Condition Keys Dependent Actions
DELETE Used to delete resources Write


GET Used to get information about resources Read


PATCH Used to update resources Write


POST Used to create child resources Write


PUT Used to update resources (and, although not recommended, can be used to create child resources) Write


UpdateRestApiPolicy Used to update the Resource Policy for a given API Write

These keys are displayed in the last column of the table. For details about the columns in the following table, see The Resource Types Table.
