This topic describes how to modify a custom policy. If the permissions of a RAM user are changed, you must modify the corresponding policy attached to the RAM user.


  1. Log on to the RAM console by using an Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Policies under Permissions.
  3. In the Policy Name column, click the name of the target custom policy.
    Note System policies and custom policies are available in Alibaba Cloud Resource Access Management (RAM). System policies can be viewed but cannot be modified. However, custom policies can be created, viewed, and modified.
  4. On the Policy Document tab, click Modify Policy Document and modify the policy document based on your business needs.
    Note For information about how to modify a policy document, see Policy structure and syntax.
  5. Click OK.
    Note After the policy document is modified, a new version is generated for the custom policy and used as the default version.
