AWS::SSO::InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration - 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).


Enables the attribute-based access control (ABAC) feature for the specified IAM Identity Center instance. You can also specify new attributes to add to your ABAC configuration during the enabling process. For more information about ABAC, see Attribute-Based Access Control in the IAM Identity Center User Guide.


The InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration property has been deprecated but is still supported for backwards compatibility purposes. We recommend that you use the AccessControlAttributes property instead.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Type" : "AWS::SSO::InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration", "Properties" : { "AccessControlAttributes" : [ AccessControlAttribute, ... ], "InstanceArn" : String } }


Type: AWS::SSO::InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration Properties: AccessControlAttributes: - AccessControlAttribute InstanceArn: String



Lists the attributes that are configured for ABAC in the specified IAM Identity Center instance.

Required: No

Type: Array of AccessControlAttribute

Maximum: 50

Update requires: No interruption


The ARN of the IAM Identity Center instance under which the operation will be executed.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Pattern: arn:(aws|aws-us-gov|aws-cn|aws-iso|aws-iso-b):sso:::instance/(sso)?ins-[a-zA-Z0-9-.]{16}

Minimum: 10

Maximum: 1224

Update requires: Replacement

Return values


Specifies the IAM Identity Center identity store attributes to add to your ABAC configuration. When using an external identity provider as an identity source, you can pass attributes through the SAML assertion. Doing so provides an alternative to configuring attributes from the IAM Identity Center identity store. If a SAML assertion passes any of these attributes, IAM Identity Center will replace the attribute value with the value from the IAM Identity Center identity store.


Enabling and configuring attributes used for access control in IAM Identity Center

The following example enables ABAC in IAM Identity Center and creates a new attribute key CostCenter that is mapped to the Value “${path:enterprise.costCenter}” which is coming from your identity source.


{ "Resources": { "ABAC": { "Type": "Amazon::SSO::InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration", "Properties": { "InstanceArn": "arn:aws:sso:::instance/ssoins-instanceId", "AccessControlAttributes": [ { "Key": "CostCenter", "Value": { "Source": [ "${path:enterprise.costCenter}" ] } } ] } } } }


Resources: ABAC: Type: 'AWS::SSO::InstanceAccessControlAttributeConfiguration' Properties: InstanceArn: 'arn:aws:sso:::instance/ssoins-instanceId' AccessControlAttributes: - Key: CostCenter Value: Source: - '${path:enterprise.costCenter}'
