Tag-based access control

  • Services: IAM, Tagging
  • Release Date: March 30, 2020

Using conditions and a set of tag variables, you can write policy to scope access based on the tags that have been applied to a resource. Access can be controlled based on a tag that exists on the requesting resource (the group or dynamic group in the policy) or on the target of the request (resource or compartment). Tag-based access control provides additional flexibility to your policies by allowing you to define access that can span compartments, groups, and resources. For details about how to write policies to scope access by tags, see Using Tags to Manage Access.
