    Policy Syntax

    A CAM policy is as follows:

                "condition": {"key":{"value"}} 
    • version: required. Currently, only "2.0" is allowed.
    • statement: an element that describes the details on a permission or a permission set defined by other elements including effect, action, resource, and condition. One policy has only one statement.
      • action: describes the action to be allowed or denied. An action can be an API (prefixed with gse:) or a feature set (a set of specific APIs prefixed with permid). This element is required.
      • resource: describes the resource to which the permission applies. A resource is described in a six-segment format. Detailed resource definitions vary by product. For more information on how to specify a resource, see the documentation for the product whose resources you are writing a statement for. This element is required.
      • condition: describes the condition for the policy to take effect. A condition consists of operator, action key, and action value. A condition value may be time, IP address, etc. Some services allow you to specify additional values in a condition. This element is optional.
      • effect: describes whether the result produced by the statement is "allow" or "explicitly deny". This element is required.

    GSE Operations

    In a CAM policy statement, you can set action to any API for any Tencent Cloud service that supports CAM. For GSE APIs, prefix them with gse:, such as gse:AddMatch or gse:AddRule.
    To specify multiple actions in a single statement, separate them with a comma as shown below:


    You can also specify multiple actions by using a wildcard, such as all actions that start with "Create" as shown below:


    To specify all GSE actions, use only the wildcard * as follows:


    GSE Resource Paths

    Each CAM policy statement for GSE is resource-specific with a resource path as shown below:

    • project_id: describes the project information and is only used to enable compatibility with legacy CAM logic. It can be left empty.
    • service_type: describes the product’s abbreviation, such as gse.
    • region*: region information, for example, bj.
    • account*: the root account of the resource owner, for example, uin/110702656.
    • resource: describes details on the GSE resource, such as fleet/fleet-28a9refi-ur5pe34j or fleet/*.

    For example, you can grant a sub-account the access to the fleet “fleet-28a9refi-ur5pe34j” in Beijing region under your root account by specifying it in the statement, as shown below:

    "resource":[ "qcs::gse:bj:uin/110702656:fleet/fleet-28a9refi-ur5pe34j"]

    You can also use the wildcard "*" to specify all resources of a certain type in a specific account as shown below:

    "resource":[ "qcs::gse::uin/110702656:fleet/*"]

    If you want to specify all resources or if a specific API does not support resource-level permission control, you can set the value of resource to * as shown below:

    "resource": ["*"]

    To specify multiple resources in one policy, separate them with a comma. In the following example, two resources are specified:
