How Do I Obtain a Token with Security Administrator Permissions?

A token is an access credential issued to an IAM user to bear its identity and permissions. When calling the APIs of IAM or other cloud services, you can use this API to obtain a user token for authentication.

Permissions of a token are determined by permissions of the user who obtains the token. Only users who have been assigned the Security Administrator role can obtain a token with Security Administrator permissions.


  • Account administrator: Create an IAM user, assign the Security Administrator role to the user, and then call the API used to obtain a user token. The obtained token has the Security Administrator permissions.
  • IAM user: Request the administrator to assign you the Security Administrator role, and then obtain a token.
