Today, we added three new features to AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy summaries to make it easier for you to understand and troubleshoot your IAM policies. Policy summaries now include the resources defined in the policy to make it easier for you to see the list of resources to which the policy controls access. You can also see which services and actions are not granted by a policy. This allows you to view the remaining actions available for a service with limited access to help you find actions you may want to include in the policy. Finally, you can now see unrecognized services and actions in policy summaries, which makes it easier for you to identify potential typos in your policies. To learn more about these new features in policy summaries, see the blog post and IAM documentation.
