.NET Framework 3.5
Container for the parameters to the AttachRolePolicy operation. Attaches the specified managed policy to the specified role.

When you attach a managed policy to a role, the managed policy is used as the role's access (permissions) policy. You cannot use a managed policy as the role's trust policy. The role's trust policy is created at the same time as the role, using CreateRole. You can update a role's trust policy using UpdateAssumeRolePolicy.

Use this API to attach a managed policy to a role. To embed an inline policy in a role, use PutRolePolicy. For more information about policies, refer to Managed Policies and Inline Policies in the IAM User Guide.
