Is there a way to programmatically list all of the available actions for an AWS service?


I am looking for a way to list all of the actions that can be used in a AWS IAM policy.

Amazon provides a policy generator which it self, knows all of the possible APIs and Actions at the current point in time.

One can generate a list of Actions from the AWS Policy Generator policies.js:
