list-policies-granting-service-access

Description

Retrieves a list of policies that the IAM identity (user, group, or role) can use to access each specified service.

Note

This operation does not use other policy types when determining whether a resource could access a service. These other policy types include resource-based policies, access control lists, AWS Organizations policies, IAM permissions boundaries, and AWS STS assume role policies. It only applies permissions policy logic. For more about the evaluation of policy types, see Evaluating Policies in the IAM User Guide .

The list of policies returned by the operation depends on the ARN of the identity that you provide.

  • User – The list of policies includes the managed and inline policies that are attached to the user directly. The list also includes any additional managed and inline policies that are attached to the group to which the user belongs.
  • Group – The list of policies includes only the managed and inline policies that are attached to the group directly. Policies that are attached to the group’s user are not included.
  • Role – The list of policies includes only the managed and inline policies that are attached to the role.

For each managed policy, this operation returns the ARN and policy name. For each inline policy, it returns the policy name and the entity to which it is attached. Inline policies do not have an ARN. For more information about these policy types, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide .

Policies that are attached to users and roles as permissions boundaries are not returned. To view which managed policy is currently used to set the permissions boundary for a user or role, use the GetUser or GetRole operations.

Synopsis

  list-policies-granting-service-access
[--marker <value>]
--arn <value>
--service-namespaces <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--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.

--arn (string)

The ARN of the IAM identity (user, group, or role) whose policies you want to list.

--service-namespaces (list)

The service namespace for the AWS services whose policies you want to list.

To learn the service namespace for a service, go to Actions, Resources, and Condition Keys for AWS Services in the IAM User Guide . Choose the name of the service to view details for that service. In the first paragraph, find the service prefix. For example, (service prefix: a4b) . For more information about service namespaces, see AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference .

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To list the policies that grant a principal access to the specified service

The following list-policies-granting-service-access example retrieves the list of policies that grant the IAM user sofia access to AWS CodeCommit service.

aws iam list-policies-granting-service-access \
    --arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/sofia \
    --service-namespaces codecommit

Output:

{
    "PoliciesGrantingServiceAccess": [
        {
            "ServiceNamespace": "codecommit",
            "Policies": [
                {
                    "PolicyName": "Grant-Sofia-Access-To-CodeCommit",
                    "PolicyType": "INLINE",
                    "EntityType": "USER",
                    "EntityName": "sofia"
                }
            ]
        }
    ],
    "IsTruncated": false
}

Output

PoliciesGrantingServiceAccess -> (list)

A ListPoliciesGrantingServiceAccess object that contains details about the permissions policies attached to the specified identity (user, group, or role).

(structure)

Contains details about the permissions policies that are attached to the specified identity (user, group, or role).

This data type is used as a response element in the ListPoliciesGrantingServiceAccess operation.

ServiceNamespace -> (string)

The namespace of the service that was accessed.

To learn the service namespace of a service, go to Actions, Resources, and Condition Keys for AWS Services in the IAM User Guide . Choose the name of the service to view details for that service. In the first paragraph, find the service prefix. For example, (service prefix: a4b) . For more information about service namespaces, see AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference .

Policies -> (list)

The PoliciesGrantingServiceAccess object that contains details about the policy.

(structure)

Contains details about the permissions policies that are attached to the specified identity (user, group, or role).

This data type is an element of the ListPoliciesGrantingServiceAccessEntry object.

PolicyName -> (string)

The policy name.

PolicyType -> (string)

The policy type. For more information about these policy types, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide .

PolicyArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN). ARNs are unique identifiers for AWS resources.

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

EntityType -> (string)

The type of entity (user or role) that used the policy to access the service to which the inline policy is attached.

This field is null for managed policies. For more information about these policy types, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide .

EntityName -> (string)

The name of the entity (user or role) to which the inline policy is attached.

This field is null for managed policies. For more information about these policy types, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide .

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. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all 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.
