Adds or updates an inline policy document that is embedded in the specified IAM group.
A user can also have managed policies attached to it. To attach a managed policy to a group, use AttachGroupPolicy . To create a new managed policy, use CreatePolicy . For information about policies, see Managed policies and inline policies in the IAM User Guide .
For information about the maximum number of inline policies that you can embed in a group, see IAM and STS quotas in the IAM User Guide .
Because policy documents can be large, you should use POST rather than GET when calling
PutGroupPolicy . For general information about using the Query API with IAM, see Making query requests in the IAM User Guide .

The name of the group to associate the policy with.
This parameter allows (through its regex pattern ) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: _+=,.@-.
The name of the policy document.

The policy document.
You must provide policies in JSON format in IAM. However, for CloudFormation templates formatted in YAML, you can provide the policy in JSON or YAML format. 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
The special characters tab (
\u0009), line feed (
\u000A), and carriage return (
Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by
--generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with
Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value
input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for
--cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided
yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with
--cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value
output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.
Turn on debug logging.
Override command’s default URL with the given URL.
By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.
Disable automatic pagination.
The formatting style for command output.
A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.
Use a specific profile from your credential file.
The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.
Display the version of this tool.
Turn on/off color output.
Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.
The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.
The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob
fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the
cli-binary-format setting. When using
file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured
Disable cli pager for output.
Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.
Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
To add a policy to a group
put-group-policy command adds a policy to the IAM group named
aws iam put-group-policy --group-name Admins --policy-document file://AdminPolicy.json --policy-name AdminRoot
The policy is defined as a JSON document in the AdminPolicy.json file. (The file name and extension do not have significance.)
