Re: Policy size limits

Hello Ryan,

Just a little bit of nitpicking on the size limits you have listed in the S3 Bucket Policies video 😉

For IAM inline policies, you have 2 kb, 5 kb and 10 kb for users, groups and roles respectively. However, the docs list those limits as 1,024; 5,120; and 10,240 characters. PS> these numbers are in the aggregate (you can have as many inline policies as you want) and whitespace doesn’t count against the totals.

Assuming a character = a byte, then your values should be 2 kB, 5 kB and 10 kB. But only approximately. Because now we get into debates about whether a kilobyte is 1000 or 1024 bytes!

OTOH, S3 bucket policy docs simply state 20 KB.

The course slide does also not clearly mentioned that we refer to bucket POLICY size limit 😉
