Adds or updates an inline policy document that is embedded in the specified IAM user.

An IAM user can also have a managed policy attached to it. To attach a managed policy to a user, use AttachUserPolicy. To create a new managed policy, use CreatePolicy. For information about policies, see Managed Policies and Inline Policies ( in the IAM User Guide.

For information about limits on the number of inline policies that you can embed in a user, see Limitations on IAM Entities ( in the IAM User Guide.

Because policy documents can be large, you should use POST rather than

GET when calling PutUserPolicy. For general information about using the Query API with IAM, go to Making Query Requests ( in the IAM User Guide.
