IAM user management
Published On May 16, 2024 - 2:08 PM

IAM user management

Discover the IAM resources page, which allows you to manage and regulate user access, so you can control the type of roles and permissions that IAM resources have in your platform.
The main benefit of managing users is that you get to quickly control the access management of your resources, so they can interact with the platform based on the required level of access that you grant them.
The following permissions are needed to be able to manage users to your platform. The
Platform Administrator
role, which is the out-of-the-box role granted to you when the account is first created, is the only role that includes all these permissions. Alternatively, as a
Platform Administrator
, you can create Custom Roles and assign them the permissions needed to invite users.
Permission
Description
iam.users.view
Allow to view users
iam.users.create
Allow to create users
iam.users.update
Allow to update users
iam.users.delete
Allow to delete users
iam.users.bulkdelete
