GetServiceLastAccessedDetails - Amazon Identity and Access Management
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).


Retrieves a service last accessed report that was created using the GenerateServiceLastAccessedDetails operation. You can use the JobId parameter in GetServiceLastAccessedDetails to retrieve the status of your report job. When the report is complete, you can retrieve the generated report. The report includes a list of Amazon services that the resource (user, group, role, or managed policy) can access.


Service last accessed data does not use other policy types when determining whether a resource could access a service. These other policy types include resource-based policies, access control lists, Amazon Organizations policies, IAM permissions boundaries, and Amazon STS assume role policies. It only applies permissions policy logic. For more about the evaluation of policy types, see Evaluating policies in the IAM User Guide.

For each service that the resource could access using permissions policies, the operation returns details about the most recent access attempt. If there was no attempt, the service is listed without details about the most recent attempt to access the service. If the operation fails, the GetServiceLastAccessedDetails operation returns the reason that it failed.

The GetServiceLastAccessedDetails operation returns a list of services. This list includes the number of entities that have attempted to access the service and the date and time of the last attempt. It also returns the ARN of the following entity, depending on the resource ARN that you used to generate the report:

  • User – Returns the user ARN that you used to generate the report

  • Group – Returns the ARN of the group member (user) that last attempted to access the service

  • Role – Returns the role ARN that you used to generate the report

  • Policy – Returns the ARN of the user or role that last used the policy to attempt to access the service

By default, the list is sorted by service namespace.

If you specified ACTION_LEVEL granularity when you generated the report, this operation returns service and action last accessed data. This includes the most recent access attempt for each tracked action within a service. Otherwise, this operation returns only service data.

For more information about service and action last accessed data, see Reducing permissions using service last accessed data in the IAM User Guide.

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.


The ID of the request generated by the GenerateServiceLastAccessedDetails operation. The JobId returned by GenerateServiceLastAccessedDetail must be used by the same role within a session, or by the same user when used to call GetServiceLastAccessedDetail.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Fixed length of 36.

Required: Yes


Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]+

Required: No


Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

If you do not include this parameter, the number of items defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true, and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 1000.

Required: No

Response Elements

The following elements are returned by the service.


An object that contains details about the reason the operation failed.

Type: ErrorDetails object


A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all your results.

Type: Boolean


The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the generated report job was completed or failed.

This field is null if the job is still in progress, as indicated by a job status value of IN_PROGRESS.

Type: Timestamp


The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format, when the report job was created.

Type: Timestamp


The status of the job.

Type: String



The type of job. Service jobs return information about when each service was last accessed. Action jobs also include information about when tracked actions within the service were last accessed.

Type: String



When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Type: String


ServiceLastAccessed object that contains details about the most recent attempt to access the service.

Type: Array of ServiceLastAccessed objects


For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.


The request was rejected because an invalid or out-of-range value was supplied for an input parameter.

HTTP Status Code: 400


The request was rejected because it referenced a resource entity that does not exist. The error message describes the resource.

HTTP Status Code: 404
