Example service control policies for AWS Organizations and AWS RAM - AWS Resource Access Manager

Example service control policies for AWS Organizations and AWS RAM

AWS RAM supports service control policies (SCPs). SCPs are policies that you attach to elements in an organization to manage permissions within that organization. An SCP applies to all AWS accounts under the element to which you attach the SCP. SCPs offer central control over the maximum available permissions for all accounts in your organization. They can help you to ensure your AWS accounts stay within your organization’s access control guidelines. For more information, see Service control policies in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

Prerequisites

To use SCPs, you must first do the following:

Example Service Control Policies

The following examples show how you can control various aspects of resource sharing in an organization.

Example 1: Prevent external sharing

The following SCP prevents users from creating resource shares that allow sharing with principals that are outside of the sharing user's organization.

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Effect": "Deny", "Action": [ "ram:CreateResourceShare", "ram:UpdateResourceShare" ], "Resource": "*", "Condition": { "Bool": { "ram:RequestedAllowsExternalPrincipals": "true" } } } ] }

Example 2: Prevent users from accepting resource share invitations from external accounts outside your organization

The following SCP blocks any principal in an affected account from accepting an invitation to use a resource share. Resource shares that are shared to other accounts in the same organization as the sharing account don't generate invitations and are therefore not affected by this SCP.

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Effect": "Deny", "Action": "ram:AcceptResourceShareInvitation", "Resource": "*" } ] }

Example 3: Allow specific accounts to share specific resource types

The following SCP allows only accounts 111111111111 and 222222222222 to create new resource shares that share Amazon EC2 prefix lists or to associate prefix lists with existing resource shares.

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Effect": "Deny", "Action": [ "ram:AssociateResourceShare", "ram:CreateResourceShare" ], "Resource": "*", "Condition": { "StringNotEquals": { "aws:PrincipalAccount": [ "111111111111", "222222222222" ] }, "StringEqualsIfExists": { "ram:RequestedResourceType": "ec2:PrefixList" } } } ] }

Example 4: Prevent sharing with the entire organization or with organizational units

The following SCP prevents users from creating resource shares that share resources with an entire organization or with any organizational units. Users can share with individual AWS accounts in the organization, or with IAM roles or users.

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Effect": "Deny", "Action": [ "ram:CreateResourceShare", "ram:AssociateResourceShare" ], "Resource": "*", "Condition": { "StringLike": { "ram:Principal": [ "arn:aws:organizations::*:organization/*", "arn:aws:organizations::*:ou/*" ] } } } ] }

Example 5: Allow sharing with only specific principals

The following example SCP allows users to share resources with only organization o-12345abcdef, organizational unit ou-98765fedcba, and AWS account 111111111111.

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Effect": "Deny", "Action": [ "ram:AssociateResourceShare", "ram:CreateResourceShare" ], "Resource": "*", "Condition": { "StringNotEqualsIfExists": { "ram:Principal": [ "arn:aws:organizations::123456789012:organization/o-12345abcdef", "arn:aws:organizations::123456789012:ou/o-12345abcdef/ou-98765fedcba", "111111111111" ] } } } ] }
