public class CreatePolicyRequest : AmazonOrganizationsRequest

The CreatePolicyRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method CreatePolicyRequest()


Public Property Content System.String

Gets and sets the property Content.

The policy content to add to the new policy. For example, if you create a service control policy (SCP), this string must be JSON text that specifies the permissions that admins in attached accounts can delegate to their users, groups, and roles. For more information about the SCP syntax, see Service Control Policy Syntax in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

Public Property Description System.String

Gets and sets the property Description.

An optional description to assign to the policy.

Public Property Name System.String

Gets and sets the property Name.

The friendly name to assign to the policy.

The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of any of the characters in the ASCII character range.

Public Property Type Amazon.Organizations.PolicyType

Gets and sets the property Type.

The type of policy to create.

In the current release, the only type of policy that you can create is a service control policy (SCP).


The following example shows how to create a service control policy (SCP) that is named AllowAllS3Actions. The JSON string in the content parameter specifies the content in the policy. The parameter string is escaped with backslashes to ensure that the embedded double quotes in the JSON policy are treated as literals in the parameter, which itself is surrounded by double quotes:

To create a service control policy

var response = client.CreatePolicy(new CreatePolicyRequest 
    Content = "{\\"Version\\":\\"2012-10-17\\",\\"Statement\\":{\\"Effect\\":\\"Allow\\",\\"Action\\":\\"s3:*\\"}}",
    Description = "Enables admins of attached accounts to delegate all S3 permissions",
    Name = "AllowAllS3Actions",

Policy policy = response.Policy;
