This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/).

This paramater allows (per its regex pattern) a string of characters consisting of either a forward slash (/) by itself or a string that must begin and end with forward slashes, containing any ASCII character from the ! (\u0021) thru the DEL character (\u007F), including most punctuation characters, digits, and upper and lowercased letters.

Gets and sets the property RoleName.

To create an IAM role

var response = client.CreateRole(new CreateRoleRequest 
    AssumeRolePolicyDocument = "",
