PromotePermissionCreatedFromPolicy - Amazon RAM
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).


When you attach a resource-based policy to a resource, Amazon RAM automatically creates a resource share of featureSet=CREATED_FROM_POLICY with a managed permission that has the same IAM permissions as the original resource-based policy. However, this type of managed permission is visible to only the resource share owner, and the associated resource share can't be modified by using Amazon RAM.

This operation creates a separate, fully manageable customer managed permission that has the same IAM permissions as the original resource-based policy. You can associate this customer managed permission to any resource shares.

Before you use PromoteResourceShareCreatedFromPolicy, you should first run this operation to ensure that you have an appropriate customer managed permission that can be associated with the promoted resource share.

  • The original CREATED_FROM_POLICY policy isn't deleted, and resource shares using that original policy aren't automatically updated.

  • You can't modify a CREATED_FROM_POLICY resource share so you can't associate the new customer managed permission by using ReplacePermsissionAssociations. However, if you use PromoteResourceShareCreatedFromPolicy, that operation automatically associates the fully manageable customer managed permission to the newly promoted STANDARD resource share.

  • After you promote a resource share, if the original CREATED_FROM_POLICY managed permission has no other associations to A resource share, then Amazon RAM automatically deletes it.

Request Syntax

POST /promotepermissioncreatedfrompolicy HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "name": "string", "permissionArn": "string" }

URI Request Parameters

The request does not use any URI parameters.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


Specifies a name for the promoted customer managed permission.

Type: String

Required: Yes


Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CREATED_FROM_POLICY permission that you want to promote. You can get this Amazon Resource Name (ARN) by calling the ListResourceSharePermissions operation.

Type: String

Required: Yes


Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value..

If you don't provide this value, then Amazon generates a random one for you.

If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken, but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

Type: String

Required: No

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "permission": { "arn": "string", "creationTime": number, "defaultVersion": boolean, "featureSet": "string", "isResourceTypeDefault": boolean, "lastUpdatedTime": number, "name": "string", "permissionType": "string", "resourceType": "string", "status": "string", "tags": [ { "key": "string", "value": "string" } ], "version": "string" } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.

Type: String


Information about an Amazon RAM permission.

Type: ResourceSharePermissionSummary object
