Access management

This section lists the roles required for an account to perform operations with Object Storage resources. The following user categories can be granted access to Object Storage:

  • Users with a registered account in Yandex.Passport.
  • Service accounts Yandex Identity and Access Management.

Note

Resource access rights are inherited from the cloud and folder.

Assigning roles

To manage buckets and objects, the user must have the appropriate permissions in the cloud and folders where operations will be performed.

To assign the required roles to the user:

  1. Open the Access management page for the selected cloud. If necessary, switch to another cloud.

  2. In the line with the appropriate user name, click Configure roles.

  3. To add a cloud role, click image in the Roles for the cloud section.

    To add a folder role, select the folder and click Assign role in the Roles in folders section.

  4. Select a role from the list. For more information about roles, see Roles in the documentation on the service Yandex Identity and Access Management.

Permissions in Object Storage

resource-manager.clouds.member

When a new user is added to the cloud, they are automatically assigned the role of a cloud member: resource-manager.clouds.member.

This role must be assigned to everyone who needs to access cloud resources, except the owners of the cloud, service accounts, and system group allAuthenticatedUsers.

This role alone does not give you the right to perform any operations and is only used in combination with other roles, such as admin, editor, or viewer.

Important

To enable a user to work in the cloud through the management console, assign them the resource-manager.clouds.member and viewer roles for the cloud. If you assign only the cloud member role for the cloud and other roles for the nested resources, the user will only be able to perform resource operations using the API or CLI.

resource-manager.clouds.owner

The role of resource-manager.clouds.owner is assigned for the cloud and makes the user the owner of the cloud. The owner can perform any operations with the cloud and its resources.

Only the cloud owner can assign to or remove from the users the role resource-manager.clouds.owner.

A cloud must have at least one owner. The sole owner of a cloud may not give up this role.

admin

Users with the admin role can:

  • Perform any operations with buckets and objects in the folder: create, delete, and edit them.
  • Assign roles to other users.

editor

Users with the editor role can perform any operations with buckets and objects in the folder: create, delete, and edit them.

viewer

Users with the viewer role can view lists of buckets and objects in the folder.
