  • Usage of Principal in a Policy Document for Identity Based Policy

    Hi Jon!

    In Lesson 5, Topic 4: IAM Policy Basics: at 2.28:

    1) ” the Principal is only mandatory if you are creating an Identity Based Policy.”

    2)”If you create a resource based policy , then you must indicate the specific AWS account, IAM user, IAM Role or the Federated User to which you would like to allow or deny access.”

    3)”Take note that you cannot include this element if you are creating an IAM permissions policy to attach to a specific user or role.”

    Are Statements 1 and 3 contradictory?

    I didnt understand, truly sorry if i am wrong. I wanted to understand it better and i started researching the AWS Docs as well.

    Could not find the answer yet.
