VerifiedPermissions / Client / batch_is_authorized

batch_is_authorized#

VerifiedPermissions.Client.batch_is_authorized(**kwargs)#

Makes a series of decisions about multiple authorization requests for one principal or resource. Each request contains the equivalent content of an IsAuthorized request: principal, action, resource, and context. Either the principal or the resource parameter must be identical across all requests. For example, Verified Permissions won’t evaluate a pair of requests where bob views photo1 and alice views photo2. Authorization of bob to view photo1 and photo2, or bob and alice to view photo1, are valid batches.

The request is evaluated against all policies in the specified policy store that match the entities that you declare. The result of the decisions is a series of Allow or Deny responses, along with the IDs of the policies that produced each decision.

The entities of a BatchIsAuthorized API request can contain up to 100 principals and up to 100 resources. The requests of a BatchIsAuthorized API request can contain up to 30 requests.

Note

The BatchIsAuthorized operation doesn’t have its own IAM permission. To authorize this operation for Amazon Web Services principals, include the permission verifiedpermissions:IsAuthorized in their IAM policies.

                  Note

                  This is a Tagged Union structure. Only one of the following top level keys will be set: boolean, entityIdentifier, long, string, set, record. If a client receives an unknown member it will set SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER as the top level key, which maps to the name or tag of the unknown member. The structure of SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER is as follows:

                  'SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER': {'name': 'UnknownMemberName'}
                  
                  • boolean (boolean) –

                    An attribute value of Boolean type.

                    Example: {"boolean": true}

                  • entityIdentifier (dict) –

                    An attribute value of type EntityIdentifier.

                    Example: "entityIdentifier": { "entityId": "<id>", "entityType": "<entity type>"}

                    • entityType (string) –

                      The type of an entity.

                      Example: "entityType":"typeName"

                    • entityId (string) –

                      The identifier of an entity.

                      "entityId":"identifier"

                  • long (integer) –

                    An attribute value of Long type.

                    Example: {"long": 0}

                  • string (string) –

                    An attribute value of String type.

                    Example: {"string": "abc"}

                  • set (list) –

                    An attribute value of Set type.

                    Example: {"set": [ {} ] }

                    • (dict) –

                      The value of an attribute.

                      Contains information about the runtime context for a request for which an authorization decision is made.

                      This data type is used as a member of the ContextDefinition structure which is uses as a request parameter for the IsAuthorized, BatchIsAuthorized, and IsAuthorizedWithToken operations.

                    An attribute value of Record type.

                    Example: {"record": { "keyName": {} } }

                    • (string) –

                      • (dict) –

                        The value of an attribute.

        • decision (string) –

          An authorization decision that indicates if the authorization request should be allowed or denied.

        • determiningPolicies (list) –

          The list of determining policies used to make the authorization decision. For example, if there are two matching policies, where one is a forbid and the other is a permit, then the forbid policy will be the determining policy. In the case of multiple matching permit policies then there would be multiple determining policies. In the case that no policies match, and hence the response is DENY, there would be no determining policies.

          • (dict) –

            Contains information about one of the policies that determined an authorization decision.

            This data type is used as an element in a response parameter for the IsAuthorized, BatchIsAuthorized, and IsAuthorizedWithToken operations.

            Example: "determiningPolicies":[{"policyId":"SPEXAMPLEabcdefg111111"}]

            • policyId (string) –

              The Id of a policy that determined to an authorization decision.

              Example: "policyId":"SPEXAMPLEabcdefg111111"

        • errors (list) –

          Errors that occurred while making an authorization decision, for example, a policy references an Entity or entity Attribute that does not exist in the slice.
