(iam): how to create combined managed policy?

See original GitHub issue

Is there a way to create combined policy using CDK?

Use Case

I’m trying to import (AWS or customer) managed policies into a new managed policy. I couldn’t find any info regarding how to do this.

This is needed to cope with size limitations (e.g. number of policies in a group).


As a workaround I did this:

const myManagedPolicy = ...;
const myCombinedPolicy = new iam.ManagedPolicy(this, "MyCombinedPolicy", {
  statements: myManagedPolicy.document.toJSON() any) => iam.PolicyStatement.fromJson(s))

This works fine, but has two limitations:

  1. I can’t assign any SID to the statements.
  2. It won’t work with AWS managed policy (since they’re of type iam.IManagedPolicy)

There is a history of adding lookup functions to contexts: . Maybe managed policy lookups can be added to the list?
