Creates or updates a Systems Manager resource policy. A resource policy helps you to define the IAM entity (for example, an Amazon Web Services account) that can manage your Systems Manager resources. The following resources support Systems Manager resource policies.

  • OpsItemGroup - The resource policy for OpsItemGroup enables Amazon Web Services accounts to view and interact with OpsCenter operational work items (OpsItems).
  • Parameter - The resource policy is used to share a parameter with other accounts using Resource Access Manager (RAM). To share a parameter, it must be in the advanced parameter tier. For information about parameter tiers, see Managing parameter tiers . For information about changing an existing standard parameter to an advanced parameter, see Changing a standard parameter to an advanced parameter . To share a SecureString parameter, it must be encrypted with a customer managed key, and you must share the key separately through Key Management Service. Amazon Web Services managed keys cannot be shared. Parameters encrypted with the default Amazon Web Services managed key can be updated to use a customer managed key instead. For KMS key definitions, see KMS concepts in the Key Management Service Developer Guide .


While you can share a parameter using the Systems Manager PutResourcePolicy operation, we recommend using Resource Access Manager (RAM) instead. This is because using PutResourcePolicy requires the extra step of promoting the parameter to a standard RAM Resource Share using the RAM PromoteResourceShareCreatedFromPolicy API operation. Otherwise, the parameter won’t be returned by the Systems Manager DescribeParameters API operation using the --shared option. For more information, see Sharing a parameter in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide

--resource-arn (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource to which you want to attach a policy.

--policy (string)

A policy you want to associate with a resource.

--policy-id (string)

The policy ID.

--policy-hash (string)

ID of the current policy version. The hash helps to prevent a situation where multiple users attempt to overwrite a policy. You must provide this hash when updating or deleting a policy.

--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. 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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

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.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

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.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

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.

--cli-binary-format (string)

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 cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.


PolicyId -> (string)

The policy ID. To update a policy, you must specify PolicyId and PolicyHash .

PolicyHash -> (string)

ID of the current policy version.
