Configure console login for an IAM user

After you create an IAM user, you can configure console login and set a login password for the IAM user. Then, the IAM user can log in to and use the Kingsoft Cloud console. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in to the Kingsoft Cloud console (new version) with your Kingsoft Cloud account or as an authorized IAM user.

  2. Choose Products and Services > Monitor and Management > IAM. In the left navigation pane, choose Identities > Subusers. The Subusers page appears.

  3. On the Subusers page, click the username of an IAM user to go to the User details page. On the Safety management tab, click Edit Rule next to Console Logon Management. On the Edit Rule pane that appears, turn on the Console Password Logon switch and set a login password, as shown in the following figure. You can also select the password reset option so that the IAM user must reset the initial password at the next login.

Create an AccessKey for an IAM user

A Kingsoft Cloud account or an authorized IAM user can create an AccessKey for an IAM user. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in to the Kingsoft Cloud console (new version) with your Kingsoft Cloud account or as an authorized IAM user.

  2. Choose Products and Services > Monitor and Management > IAM. In the left navigation pane, choose Identities > Subusers. The Subusers page appears.

  3. On the Subusers page, click the username of an IAM user to go to the User details page.

  4. View the current AccessKeys of the IAM user in the User AccessKey key section of the Safety management tab. An IAM user can have up to two AccessKeys. If the number of existing AccessKeys has not reached the maximum, click New Key to generate a new AccessKey, which appears in a dialog box, as shown in the following figure.

Note: For security reasons, you can only view or download the AccessKeyID and SecretAccessKey pair of an AccessKey once, which is right after it is created. If you did not view or download the AccessKey information after it is created, you cannot view the information again. In this case, the only solution is to delete the AccessKey and generate a new one. An AccessKey must be disabled before you can delete it.

Attach policies to an IAM user and add an IAM user to groups

A Kingsoft Cloud account or an authorized IAM user can attach policies to IAM users and add IAM users to groups. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Log in to the Kingsoft Cloud console (new version) with your Kingsoft Cloud account or as an authorized IAM user.

  2. Choose Products and Services > Monitor and Management > IAM. In the left navigation pane, choose Identities > Subusers. The Subusers page appears.

  3. On the Subusers page, find the target IAM user and click Add Permissions in the Actions column to attach policies to the IAM user. Alternatively, you can click the username of the IAM user to go to the User details page, click the Permissions tab, and then attach policies to or detach policies from the IAM user.
