Amazon Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer helps identify potential resource-access risks by enabling you to identify any policies that grant access to an external principal. It does this by using logic-based reasoning to analyze resource-based policies in your Amazon environment. An external principal can be another Amazon account, a root user, an IAM user or role, a federated user, an Amazon service, or an anonymous user. You can also use IAM Access Analyzer to preview and validate public and cross-account access to your resources before deploying permissions changes. This guide describes the Amazon Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer operations that you can call programmatically. For general information about IAM Access Analyzer, see Amazon Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer in the IAM User Guide.

To start using IAM Access Analyzer, you first need to create an analyzer.
