Policies can be used to scope records by name and ownership.

Declare a scoped policy

This example shows how to use a scoped policy to represent who can access credentials for a Jenkins master.
The policy includes an SSH private key and API token; the users group can fetch them and the admins can update them.

One or more !policy blocks can be declared in a policy file. Each policy creates a scoped set of roles
and resources. The policy is a role which owns everything defined in its body, and the IDs of all roles and resources
defined in the policy body are prefixed with the policy's id. For example, if a policy called
jenkins/v1 defines a variable whose id is private-key, then:

  • The full name of the created variable will be jenkins/v1/private-key.
  • The owner of the variable will be be the role <account>:policy:jenkins/v1.
a policy:
- !policy
  id: jenkins/v1
    description: Governs the Conjur layer which holds the Jenkins master
    - !group &users users
    - !group &admins admins

    - &variables
      - !variable private-key
      - !variable api-token

    - !permit
      role: *users
      privilege: [ read, execute ]
      resource: *variables

    - !permit
      role: *admins
      privilege: [ read, execute, update ]
      resource: *variables
I list group resources
the resource list includes group "jenkins/v1/users"
the resource list includes group "jenkins/v1/admins"
I list the roles permitted to execute variable "jenkins/v1/private-key"
the role list includes policy "jenkins/v1"
the role list includes group "jenkins/v1/users"
