Example Container Policy: Cross-Account Full Access to a Role

This example policy allows cross-account access to update any object in the account, as long as the user is logged in over HTTP. It also allows cross-account access to delete, download, and describe objects over HTTP or HTTPS to an account that has assumed the specified role:

  • The first statement is CrossAccountRolePostOverHttps. It allows access to the PutObject operation on any object and allows this access to any user of the specified account if that account has assumed the role that is specified in <role name>. It specifies that this access has the condition of requiring HTTPS for the operation (this condition must always be included when providing access to PutObject).

    In other words, any principal that has cross-account access can access PutObject, but only over HTTPS.

  • The second statement is CrossAccountFullAccessExceptPost. It allows access to all operations except PutObject on any object. It allows this access to any user of the specified account if that account has assumed the role that is specified in <role name>. This access does not have the condition of requiring HTTPS for the operations.

    In other words, any account that has cross-account access can access DeleteObject, GetObject, and so on (but not PutObject), and can do this over HTTP or HTTPS.

    If you don’t exclude PutObject from the second statement, the statement won’t be valid (because if you include PutObject you must explicitly set HTTPS as a condition).
