An IAM user is an entity identity of Identity and Access Management (IAM) that has a fixed ID and credential. It represents a person or an application.
- You can create multiple IAM users under one Kingsoft Cloud account to represent employees, systems, or applications of your enterprise.
- IAM users do not own resources, do not receive individual bills, and cannot make payments. Fees that are incurred by IAM users are paid by the corresponding Kingsoft Cloud accounts.
- IAM users belong to and are visible only to their Kingsoft Cloud accounts.
- IAM users must be authorized by their Kingsoft Cloud accounts before they can log in to the Kingsoft Cloud console or call API operations to access the resources under their Kingsoft Cloud accounts.
