Create IAM Users

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

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

Using the CLI

Use the mc admin user add command to add an IAM user to an account.

Using the Object Store Interface

To add an IAM user:
  1. Login to the Object Store interface as the administrator or as the root user.
  2. Click Administration > Accounts to view the Accounts page which lists all the available accounts.
  3. From the Actions menu for an account other than default, select Create IAM User.
  4. Enter a name for the IAM user. The account name is already populated.
  5. Optionally, specify the IAM group to which to add the user, and the IAM policy to apply.
    NOTE You can add the user to an IAM group and apply an IAM policy at a later time, after user creation as well.
  6. Click Create IAM User.
