This class represents the parameters used for calling the method CreatePolicy on the AWS Identity and Access Management service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method CreatePolicy.

You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to CreatePolicy.


    my $iam = Paws->service('IAM');
    my $CreatePolicyResponse = $iam->CreatePolicy(
      PolicyDocument => 'MypolicyDocumentType',
      PolicyName     => 'MypolicyNameType',
      Description    => 'MypolicyDescriptionType',    # OPTIONAL
      Path           => 'MypolicyPathType',           # OPTIONAL

    # Results:
    my $Policy = $CreatePolicyResponse->Policy;

    # Returns a L<Paws::IAM::CreatePolicyResponse> object.

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see


Description => Str

A friendly description of the policy.

Typically used to store information about the permissions defined in the policy. For example, "Grants access to production DynamoDB tables."

The policy description is immutable. After a value is assigned, it cannot be changed.

Path => Str

The path for the policy.

For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers ( in the IAM User Guide.

This parameter is optional. If it is not included, it defaults to a slash (/).

This parameter allows (through its regex pattern ( a string of characters consisting of either a forward slash (/) by itself or a string that must begin and end with forward slashes. In addition, it can contain any ASCII character from the ! (\u0021) through the DEL character (\u007F), including most punctuation characters, digits, and upper and lowercased letters.

REQUIRED PolicyDocument => Str

The JSON policy document that you want to use as the content for the new policy.

You must provide policies in JSON format in IAM. However, for AWS CloudFormation templates formatted in YAML, you can provide the policy in JSON or YAML format. AWS CloudFormation always converts a YAML policy to JSON format before submitting it to IAM.

The regex pattern ( used to validate this parameter is a string of characters consisting of the following:

  • Any printable ASCII character ranging from the space character (\u0020) through the end of the ASCII character range

  • The printable characters in the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement character set (through \u00FF)

  • The special characters tab (\u0009), line feed (\u000A), and carriage return (\u000D)

REQUIRED PolicyName => Str

The friendly name of the policy.

IAM user, group, role, and policy names must be unique within the account. Names are not distinguished by case. For example, you cannot create resources named both "MyResource" and "myresource".
