CreatePermissionVersion - AWS RAM


Creates a new version of the specified customer managed permission. The new version is automatically set as the default version of the customer managed permission. New resource shares automatically use the default permission. Existing resource shares continue to use their original permission versions, but you can use ReplacePermissionAssociations to update them.

If the specified customer managed permission already has the maximum of 5 versions, then you must delete one of the existing versions before you can create a new one.

Request Syntax

POST /createpermissionversion HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "permissionArn": "string", "policyTemplate": "string" }

URI Request Parameters

The request does not use any URI parameters.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the customer managed permission you're creating a new version for.

Type: String

Required: Yes


A string in JSON format string that contains the following elements of a resource-based policy:

  • Effect: must be set to ALLOW.

  • Action: specifies the actions that are allowed by this customer managed permission. The list must contain only actions that are supported by the specified resource type. For a list of all actions supported by each resource type, see Actions, resources, and condition keys for AWS services in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide.

  • Condition: (optional) specifies conditional parameters that must evaluate to true when a user attempts an action for that action to be allowed. For more information about the Condition element, see IAM policies: Condition element in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide.

This template can't include either the Resource or Principal elements. Those are both filled in by AWS RAM when it instantiates the resource-based policy on each resource shared using this managed permission. The Resource comes from the ARN of the specific resource that you are sharing. The Principal comes from the list of identities added to the resource share.

Type: String

Required: Yes


Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value..

If you don't provide this value, then AWS generates a random one for you.

If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken, but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

Type: String

Required: No

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "permission": { "arn": "string", "creationTime": number, "defaultVersion": boolean, "featureSet": "string", "isResourceTypeDefault": boolean, "lastUpdatedTime": number, "name": "string", "permission": "string", "permissionType": "string", "resourceType": "string", "status": "string", "tags": [ { "key": "string", "value": "string" } ], "version": "string" } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.

Type: String


Information about a AWS RAM managed permission.

Type: ResourceSharePermissionDetail object


For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.
