Sources of truth

A good starting point in the AWS IAM documentation can be:

Extend a service

To extend the information of a service, edit the file in the services folder. Make sure to follow the line structure as following:

| Action | Description | Resource | Condition |
  • Separate multiple Resources or Conditions with a ,.
  • If no resource-level permissions apply, use a *-
  • If no service specific conditions apply, use a -.

Add a service

The add information about a new service, create a new file in the services folder named <service>.md. Make sure to follow the line structure as following:

| Action | Description | Resource | Condition |
| --- | --- | --- | --- |
| [service:Action](http://docs.aws.amazon.com/Service/latest/APIReference/API_Action.html) | Some description. | * | - |
  • Separate multiple Resources or Conditions with a ,.
  • If no resource-level permissions apply, use a *-
  • If no service specific conditions apply, use a -.

Finally, add an entry to tools/serviceNames.json to map the service short name (e.g., ec2) to the full name (e.g., Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud).
