PromoteResourceShareCreatedFromPolicy - 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 permission policy to a resource, it automatically creates a resource share. However, resource shares created this way are visible only to the resource share owner, and the resource share can't be modified in Amazon RAM.

You can use this operation to promote the resource share to a full Amazon RAM resource share. When you promote a resource share, you can then manage the resource share in Amazon RAM and it becomes visible to all of the principals you shared it with.
