AWS managed policies for AWS RAM - AWS Resource Access Manager

AWS managed policies for AWS RAM

AWS Resource Access Manager currently provides several AWS RAM managed policies, which are described in this topic.

In the preceding list, you can attach the first three policies to your IAM users and roles to grant permissions. The last policy in the list is reserved for the AWS RAM service's service-linked role.

To add permissions to users, groups, and roles, it is easier to use AWS managed policies than to write policies yourself. It takes time and expertise to create IAM customer managed policies that provide your team with only the permissions they need. To get started quickly, you can use our AWS managed policies. These policies cover common use cases and are available in your AWS account. For more information about AWS managed policies, see AWS managed policies in the IAM User Guide.

AWS services maintain and update AWS managed policies. You can't change the permissions in AWS managed policies. Services occasionally add additional permissions to an AWS managed policy to support new features. This type of update affects all identities (users, groups, and roles) where the policy is attached. Services are most likely to update an AWS managed policy when a new feature is launched or when new operations become available. Services do not remove permissions from an AWS managed policy, so policy updates won't break your existing permissions.

Additionally, AWS supports managed policies for job functions that span multiple services. For example, the ViewOnlyAccess AWS managed policy provides read-only access to many AWS services and resources. When a service launches a new feature, AWS adds read-only permissions for new operations and resources. For a list and descriptions of job function policies, see AWS managed policies for job functions in the IAM User Guide.

AWS managed policy: AWSResourceAccessManagerServiceRolePolicy

The AWS managed policy AWSResourceAccessManagerServiceRolePolicycan be used only with the service-linked role for AWS RAM. You can't attach, detach, modify, or delete this policy.

This policy provides AWS RAM with read-only access to your organization's structure. When you enable integration between AWS RAM and AWS Organizations, AWS RAM automatically creates a service-linked role named AWSServiceRoleForResourceAccessManager that the service assumes when it needs to look up information about your organization and its accounts, for example, when you view the organization's structure in the AWS RAM console.

It does this by granting read-only permission to run the organizations:Describe and organizations:List operations that provide details of the organization's structure and accounts.
