Alibaba Cloud offers you a variety of system policies. The policies only provide coarse-grained access control, for example, all permissions or the read-only permission of a specific cloud product.
If you have finer-grained authorization requirements, for example, you want user bob to only read objects from the
oss://samplebucket/bob/ directory through an office network, you can create custom policies for access control. (You can search for "My IP address" in a search engine to obtain the IP address of your office network.)
You understand the basic structure and syntax of a policy. For more information, see Policy language syntax.
RAM supports authorization at a finest granularity of API. That is, you can grant each operation permission in a policy by calling a specific API. Make sure that you understand the authorization granularity and methods supported by RAM. For more information, see Cloud services supporting RAM.
