// UserWrapper encapsulates user actions used in the examples. // It contains an IAM service client that is used to perform user actions. type UserWrapper struct { IamClient *iam.Client } // ListUserPolicies lists the inline policies for the specified user. func (wrapper UserWrapper) ListUserPolicies(userName string) ([]string, error) { var policies []string result, err := wrapper.IamClient.ListUserPolicies(context.TODO(), &iam.ListUserPoliciesInput{ UserName: aws.String(userName), }) if err != nil { log.Printf("Couldn't list policies for user %v. Here's why: %v\n", userName, err) } else { policies = result.PolicyNames } return policies, err }
