[ aws . ram ]



Adds or replaces the RAM permission for a resource type included in a resource share. You can have exactly one permission associated with each resource type in the resource share. You can add a new RAM permission only if there are currently no resources of that resource type currently in the resource share.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

--resource-share-arn (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the resource share to which you want to add or replace permissions.

--permission-arn (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the RAM permission to associate with the resource share. To find the ARN for a permission, use either the ListPermissions operation or go to the Permissions library page in the RAM console and then choose the name of the permission. The ARN is displayed on the detail page.

--replace | --no-replace (boolean)

Specifies whether the specified permission should replace or add to the existing permission associated with the resource share. Use true to replace the current permissions. Use false to add the permission to the current permission. The default value is false .


A resource share can have only one permission per resource type. If a resource share already has a permission for the specified resource type and you don’t set replace to true then the operation returns an error. This helps prevent accidental overwriting of a permission.

--client-token (string)

Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value. .

If you don’t provide this value, then Amazon Web Services generates a random one for you.

--permission-version (integer)

Specifies the version of the RAM permission to associate with the resource share. If you don’t specify this parameter, the operation uses the version designated as the default. You can use the ListPermissionVersions operation to discover the available versions of a permission.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) 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 --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) 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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To associate a RAM managed permission with a resource share

The following associate-resource-share-permission example replaces the existing managed permission for the relevant resource type with the specified managed permission. Access to all resources of the relevant resource type is governed by the new permission.

aws ram associate-resource-share-permission \
    --permission-arn arn:aws:ram::aws:permission/AWSRAMPermissionGlueDatabaseReadWrite \
    --replace \
    --resource-share-arn arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/27d09b4b-5e12-41d1-a4f2-19dedEXAMPLE


    "returnValue": true


returnValue -> (boolean)

A return value of true indicates that the request succeeded. A value of false indicates that the request failed.

clientToken -> (string)

The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.
