Create IAM Groups

Explains how to create IAM groups for programmatic access to the Object Store functions.

You cannot add IAM groups to the default account. Create another account to add IAM groups.

Using the CLI

Use the mc admin group create command to add an IAM group to an account.

Using the Object Store Interface

To add an IAM group:
  1. Login to the Object Store interface as the administrator or as the root user.
  2. Select an account other than the default from the Account drop down.
  3. Click Administration > IAM Groups to view the IAM Groups page. This page lists all the available IAM Groups.
  4. Click Create IAM Group.
  5. Enter a name for the IAM group.
  6. The account name is auto-populated.
  7. Optionally, select the IAM users to be added to the group.
  8. Optionally, specify the IAM policy to apply to the members of the group.
    NOTE You can add a user to an IAM group and apply an IAM policy at a later time, after user creation as well.
  9. Click Create IAM Group.
