The verbs are listed in order of least amount of ability to most. The exact meaning of a each verb depends on which resource-type it's paired with. The tables later in this section show the API operations covered by each combination of verb and resource-type.
|Verb||Types of Access Covered||Target User|
||Ability to list resources, without access to any confidential information or user-specified metadata that may be part of that resource.
Important: The operation to list policies includes the contents of the policies themselves, and the list operations for the Networking resource-types return all the information (e.g., the contents of security lists and route tables).
||Day-to-day end users of resources|
||Includes all permissions for the resource.||Administrators|
