[][src]Crate aws_iam

This crate provides a Rust typed model for creating and reading AWS IAM Policy documents. Whreever possible this crate uses documentation directly from the AWS IAM User Guide.

From AWS Identity and Access Management Documentation:

The access management portion of AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) helps you define what a principal entity is allowed to do in an account. A principal entity is a person or application that is authenticated using an IAM entity (user or role). Access management is often referred to as authorization. You manage access in AWS by creating policies and attaching them to IAM identities (users, groups of users, or roles) or AWS resources. A policy is an object in AWS that, when associated with an identity or resource, defines their permissions. AWS evaluates these policies when a principal uses an IAM entity (user or role) to make a request. Permissions in the policies determine whether the request is allowed or denied. Most policies are stored in AWS as JSON documents.


This crate provides a set of types that can be used to serialize and deserialize IAM Policy documents. For a simpler experience creating documents a builder module provides a more fluent method for construction. For understanding policies the report module provides a set of visitor traits that can be used with the walk_policy function to walk a parsed policy value.


The example JSON below is taken from Overview of JSON Policies.

  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Sid": "ThirdStatement",
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": [
      "Resource": [
        "arn:aws:s3:::confidential-data/ *"
      "Condition": {"Bool": {"aws:MultiFactorAuthPresent": "true"}}

This can be constructed with the following code.

use std::collections::HashMap;
use aws_iam::model::*;
use aws_iam::model::builder::*;
use std::str::FromStr;

let condition = ConditionBuilder::new(GlobalConditionOperator::Bool)
    .right_hand_str("aws:MultiFactorAuthPresent", "true")
let policy = Policy {
    version: Some(Version::V2012),
    id: Some("test_access_policy_with_condition".to_string()),
    statement: OneOrAll::All(vec![Statement {
        sid: Some("ThirdStatement".to_string()),
        principal: None,
        effect: Effect::Allow,
        action: Action::these(&mut vec![
        resource: Resource::these(&mut vec![
        condition: Some(condition),
println!("{}", policy.to_string());
