Partition string
// The service namespace that identifies the AWS product (for example, Amazon S3, IAM, or Amazon RDS). For a list of

Service string
// The region the resource resides in. Note that the ARNs for some resources do not require a region, so this
// component might be omitted.

// ARNs for some resources don't require an account number, so this component might be omitted.
AccountID string
// The content of this part of the ARN varies by service. It often includes an indicator of the type of resource —
// for example, an IAM user or Amazon RDS database - followed by a slash (/) or a colon (:), followed by the
