Authorizable Resource Types

Last updated: 2021-09-03 16:41:09

    Resource-Level Permission Overview

    Resource-level permissions specify resources a user can operate. TencentDB for PostgreSQL supports specific resource-level permissions, i.e., allowing the user to perform operations or use specific resources.
    In Cloud Access Management (CAM), the types of PostgreSQL resources that can be authorized are as follows:

    Resource Type Resource Description Method in Access Policies
    Instance qcs::postgres:$region:$account:DBInstanceId/$DBInstanceId

    The PostgreSQL instance APIs section in this document describes PostgreSQL API operations that currently support resource-level permissions as well as resources and condition keys supported by each operation. When configuring the resource path, you need to replace values of the parameters such as $region and $account with your actual values. You can also use the wildcard (*) in the path. For more information, please see Console Examples.


    For a PostgreSQL API operation that does not support authorization at the resource level, you can still authorize a user to perform the operation. In this case, you must specify * as the resource element in the policy statement.
