Users management

The IAM Users page allows you to manage and regulate user access to your Services and Applications and assign them roles, access groups, and access policies.
Identity & Access Management (IAM) allows you to manage users' permissions quickly and efficiently. The IAM Users page allows your collaborators to start using the Services and Applications with the required level of access that you grant them. Users with an Administrator role, which is the out-of-the-box role granted when the Kyndryl Bridge Services account is first created, can manage users’ permissions. Likewise, you can grant Administrator role permissions to other users so they can fulfill this task for you. To understand which roles and permissions are required, visit roles and permissions.

Accessing the IAM Users page

  1. From the Kyndryl Bridge Console Home page access the secondary menu.
  2. From the App Manager dropdown, select
    IAM
    . The IAM page opens.
  3. Select
    Users
    from the left navigation bar of the page. The users page opens.

    • Deleting users
    • Assigning an Access Policy directly to a user
