get-effective-policies

Description

Gets a list of the policies that have an effect on the authorization behavior of the specified device when it connects to the AWS IoT device gateway.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-effective-policies
[--principal <value>]
[--cognito-identity-pool-id <value>]
[--thing-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--principal (string)

The principal. Valid principals are CertificateArn (arn:aws:iot:region :accountId :cert/certificateId ), thingGroupArn (arn:aws:iot:region :accountId :thinggroup/groupName ) and CognitoId (region :id ).

--cognito-identity-pool-id (string)

The Cognito identity pool ID.

--thing-name (string)

The thing name.

--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 effect a thing

The following get-effective-policies example lists the policies that effect the specified thing, including policies attached to any groups to which it belongs.

aws iot get-effective-policies \
    --thing-name TemperatureSensor-001 \
    --principal arn:aws:iot:us-west-2:123456789012:cert/488b6a7f2acdeb00a77384e63c4e40b18b1b3caaae57b7272ba44c45e3448142
