AWS::LakeFormation::Permissions - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


The AWS::LakeFormation::Permissions resource represents the permissions that a principal has on an Amazon Glue Data Catalog resource (such as Amazon Glue database or Amazon Glue tables). When you upload a permissions stack, the permissions are granted to the principal and when you remove the stack, the permissions are revoked from the principal. If you remove a stack, and the principal does not have the permissions referenced in the stack then Amazon Lake Formation will throw an error because you can’t call revoke on non-existing permissions. To successfully remove the stack, you’ll need to regrant those permissions and then remove the stack.


New versions of Amazon Lake Formation permission resources are now available. For more information, see: AWS:LakeFormation::PrincipalPermissions
