Logging in and accessing resources

    How do I log in to the management console?

    Go to the management console page.

    If you are not logged in to your Yandex or Yandex.Connect account, click Log in. If you don't have an account yet, click Register. For more information, see the Yandex.Passport documentation.

    How are access rights verified?

    Before performing an operation with a resource, such as creating a VM, IAM checks whether the user has all the necessary permissions. If the user does not have any of the permissions, the operation will not be performed and Yandex.Cloud will return an error. For more information, see How access management in Yandex.Cloud works.

    What is a resource?

    A resource is a Yandex.Cloud entity that you can perform operations with, such as creating, updating, viewing, or deleting it. Examples of resources: VMs, disks, service accounts, clouds, and folders. For more information, see Hierarchy of Yandex.Cloud resources in the Resource Manager documentation.

    What is access binding?

    Access rights are set as a list of role-subject bindings. They are called access bindings. You can add or remove these bindings to control access rights to a resource. For more information, see Assign access rights.
