IAM flow chart
CORRECT: “There is another policy attached to the IAM role that allows access” is a correct answer.
CORRECT: “A resource-based policy attached to the S3 bucket is allowing access” is also a correct answer.
INCORRECT: “The evaluation logic checked the IAM user identity-based policy and found an allow” is incorrect as the EC2 instance is using a role, not a user account.
INCORRECT: “IAM is eventually consistent, the changes may not have synchronized yet” is incorrect. Yes, IAM is eventually consistent however the question states that the changes were made a few hours ago which is ample time for IAM to synchronize.
INCORRECT: “It is not possible to restrict access to multiple buckets from a single policy” is incorrect. This is not true; you can certainly do this using multiple resources in the policy.
