Creating a User and Granting Permissions

This section describes how to use Identity and Access Management (IAM) to implement fine-grained permissions control for your DeH resources. With IAM, you can:

  • Create IAM users for employees based on your enterprise's organizational structure. Each IAM user will have their own security credentials for accessing DeH resources.

  • Grant only the permissions required for users to perform a specific task.

  • Use IAM to entrust a cloud account or cloud service to perform efficient O&M on your DeH resources.

If your cloud account does not require individual IAM users, skip over this section.

This section describes the procedure for granting permissions (see Figure 1).


Learn about the permissions (see Permissions) supported by DeH and choose policies or roles according to your requirements. For the permissions of other services, see Permissions.

Figure 1 Process for granting DeH permissions

  1. Creating a User Group and Assigning Permissions

    Create a user group on the IAM console, and assign the DeH ReadOnlyAccess permission to the group.

  2. Creating a User and Adding the User to a User Group

    Create a user on the IAM console and add the user to the group created in 1.

  3. Log in and verify permissions.

    Log in to the management console using the created user, and verify that the user only has read permissions for DeH.

    • Click Service List and choose Computing > Dedicated Host. On the displayed page, click Buy DeH in the upper right corner. If you cannot buy a DeH (after the DeH ReadOnlyAccess permission is assigned), the DeH ReadOnlyAccess permission has already taken effect.

    • Choose any other service in the Service List. If a message appears indicating that you have insufficient permissions to access the service, the DeH ReadOnlyAccess policy has already taken effect.
