Container for the parameters to the CreatePolicy operation. Creates a new managed policy for your Amazon Web Services account.
This operation creates a policy version with a version identifier of
and sets v1 as the policy's default version. For more information about policy versions,
for managed policies in the IAM User Guide.
As a best practice, you can validate your IAM policies. To learn more, see Validating IAM policies in the IAM User Guide.
For more information about managed policies in general, see Managed policies and inline policies in the IAM User Guide.
public class CreatePolicyRequest : AmazonIdentityManagementServiceRequest IAmazonWebServiceRequest
The CreatePolicyRequest type exposes the following members
Gets and sets the property Description.
A friendly description of the policy.
Typically used to store information about the permissions defined in the policy. For example, "Grants access to production DynamoDB tables."

For more information about paths, see IAM identifiers in the IAM User Guide.
This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/).

You cannot use an asterisk (*) in the path name.
Gets and sets the property PolicyDocument.
The JSON policy document that you want to use as the content for the new policy.

The maximum length of the policy document that you can pass in this operation, including whitespace, is listed below. To view the maximum character counts of a managed policy with no whitespaces, see IAM and STS character quotas.
To learn more about JSON policy grammar, see Grammar of the IAM JSON policy language in the IAM User Guide.

A list of tags that you want to attach to the new IAM customer managed policy. Each tag consists of a key name and an associated value. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide.
If any one of the tags is invalid or if you exceed the allowed maximum number of tags, then the entire request fails and the resource is not created.
