Details for Load Balancing

This topic covers details for writing policies to control access to the Load Balancing service.

Resource-Types

load-balancers

Supported Variables

Only the general variables are supported (see General Variables for All Requests).

Details for Verb + Resource-Type Combinations

The following tables show the permissions and API operations covered by each verb. The level of access is cumulative as you go from inspect > read > use > manage. A plus sign (+) in a table cell indicates incremental access compared to the cell directly above it, whereas "no extra" indicates no incremental access..

For example, the read verb for load-balancers includes the same permissions and API operations as the inspect verb, plus the LOAD_BALANCER_READ permission and a number of API operations (e.g., GetLoadBalancer, ListWorkRequests, etc.). The use verb covers still another permission and set of API operations compared to read. And manage covers two more permissions and operations compared to use.

Permissions Required for Each API Operation

The following table lists the API operations in a logical order, grouped by resource type.

Tip

If a group uses the Console to manage load balancers, permissions to use the associated networking resources are required. See the load balancing policy examples for further guidance.

For information about permissions, see Permissions.
