Article for explaining custom policy syntax


Can someone recommend articles that explain the syntax of a custom policy so that I can write good custom policy without doing guess work.

For example when do we need to include condition, why is resource normally assigned with *, can we use ARN instead of resource in the policy.

Unfortunately, the article Policies and Permissions does not explain the syntax. Thanks

This should help understand the syntax. There are also many policy examples and Policy Generator for you to use as a handy tool to write policies.
