Creating a User Group

You can plan user groups based on users' responsibilities and grant them the corresponding permissions. Users in a user group have all of its permissions. User groups help improve the efficiency of permission management.

Default User Group

Table 1 describes the default user groups and their permissions provided by IAM.

  • For an existing account, IAM provides default user groups admin and power_user.
  • For a newly registered account, IAM provides only the default user group admin.

This user group has all operation permissions for all cloud service resources. A user in this group can operate and use all cloud service resources, including but not limited to creating user groups and users, modifying user group permissions, and managing OBS resources.

power_user

This group has all operation permissions except user management. A user in this group can manage all cloud service resources. However, the user cannot create user groups or users, modify user group permissions, or grant permissions to users.
