About access management
All transactions in Yandex.Cloud are checked by the Identity and Access Management service. If a subject doesn't have the required permission, the service returns an error.
To grant permission to a resource, assign roles for this resource to the subject that will perform operations. Roles can be assigned to a Yandex account, service account, or system group. For more information, see How access management works in Yandex.Cloud.
Only users with the
resource-manager.clouds.owner role for a resource can assign roles for this resource.
