Paws::STS::AssumeRole - Arguments for method AssumeRole on Paws::STS



This class represents the parameters used for calling the method AssumeRole on the AWS Security Token Service service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method AssumeRole.

You shouln’t make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to AssumeRole.

As an example:

  $service_obj->AssumeRole(Att1 => $value1, Att2 => $value2, ...);

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object.


    DurationSeconds => Int

The duration, in seconds, of the role session. The value can range from 900 seconds (15 minutes) to 3600 seconds (1 hour). By default, the value is set to 3600 seconds.

    ExternalId => Str

A unique identifier that is used by third parties when assuming roles in their customers’ accounts. For each role that the third party can assume, they should instruct their customers to ensure the role’s trust policy checks for the external ID that the third party generated. Each time the third party assumes the role, they should pass the customer’s external ID. The external ID is useful in order to help third parties bind a role to the customer who created it. For more information about the external ID, see How to Use External ID When Granting Access to Your AWS Resources in Using Temporary Security Credentials.

    Policy => Str

An IAM policy in JSON format.

This parameter is optional. If you pass a policy, the temporary security credentials that are returned by the operation have the permissions that are allowed by both (the intersection of) the access policy of the role that is being assumed, and the policy that you pass. This gives you a way to further restrict the permissions for the resulting temporary security credentials. You cannot use the passed policy to grant permissions that are in excess of those allowed by the access policy of the role that is being assumed. For more information, see Permissions for AssumeRole, AssumeRoleWithSAML, and AssumeRoleWithWebIdentity in Using Temporary Security Credentials.

The policy plain text must be 2048 bytes or shorter. However, an internal conversion compresses it into a packed binary format with a separate limit. The PackedPolicySize response element indicates by percentage how close to the upper size limit the policy is, with 100% equaling the maximum allowed size.

REQUIRED RoleArn => Str

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the role to assume.

REQUIRED RoleSessionName => Str

An identifier for the assumed role session.

Use the role session name to uniquely identity a session when the same role is assumed by different principals or for different reasons. In cross-account scenarios, the role session name is visible to, and can be logged by the account that owns the role. The role session name is also used in the ARN of the assumed role principal. This means that subsequent cross-account API requests using the temporary security credentials will expose the role session name to the external account in their CloudTrail logs.

    SerialNumber => Str

The identification number of the MFA device that is associated with the user who is making the AssumeRole call. Specify this value if the trust policy of the role being assumed includes a condition that requires MFA authentication. The value is either the serial number for a hardware device (such as GAHT12345678) or an Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for a virtual device (such as arn:aws:iam::123456789012:mfa/user).

    TokenCode => Str

The value provided by the MFA device, if the trust policy of the role being assumed requires MFA (that is, if the policy includes a condition that tests for MFA). If the role being assumed requires MFA and if the TokenCode value is missing or expired, the AssumeRole call returns an access denied error.
