AWS Recycle Bin for EBS Snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs now supports IAM condition keys to manage retention rules

You can now use Identity and Access Management (IAM) condition keys to specify which resource types are permitted in the retention rules created for Recycle Bin. With Recycle Bin, you can retain deleted EBS snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs for a period of time so that you can recover them in the event of an accidental deletion. You can enable Recycle Bin for all or a subset of the Snapshots or AMIs in your account by creating one or more retention rule. Each rule also specifies a retention time period. A deleted EBS snapshot or de-registered AMI can be recovered from the Recycle Bin before the expiration of the retention period.
