Compute Engine IAM roles and permissions

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

When you add a new member to your project, you can use an Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy to give that member one or more IAM roles. Each IAM role contains permissions that grant the member access to specific resources.

Compute Engine has a set of predefined IAM roles that are described on this page. You can also create custom roles that contain subsets of permissions that map directly to your needs.

To learn which permissions are required for each method, see the Compute Engine API reference documentation:

For information about granting access, see the following pages.

Before you begin

  • Read the IAM documentation.

What is IAM?

Google Cloud offers IAM, which lets you give more granular access to specific Google Cloud resources and prevents unwanted access to other resources. IAM lets you adopt the security principle of least privilege, so you grant only the necessary access to your resources.

IAM lets you control who (identity) has what (roles) permission to which resources by setting IAM policies. IAM policies grant specific role(s) to a project member, giving that identity certain permissions. For example, for a given resource, such as a project, you can assign the roles/compute.networkAdmin role to a Google Account and that account can control network-related resources in the project, but cannot manage other resources, like instances and disks. You can also use IAM to manage the Google Cloud console legacy roles granted to project team members.

The serviceAccountUser role

When granted together with roles/compute.instanceAdmin.v1, roles/iam.serviceAccountUser gives members the ability to create and manage instances that use a service account. Specifically, granting roles/iam.serviceAccountUser and roles/compute.instanceAdmin.v1 together gives members permission to:

  • Create an instance that runs as a service account.
  • Attach a persistent disk to an instance that runs as a service account.
  • Set instance metadata on an instance that runs as a service account.
  • Use SSH to connect to an instance that runs as a service account.
  • Reconfigure an instance to run as a service account.

You can grant roles/iam.serviceAccountUser one of two ways:

  • Recommended. Grant the role to a member on a specific service account. This gives a member access to the service account for which they are an iam.serviceAccountUser but prevents access to other service accounts for which the member is not an iam.serviceAccountUser.

  • Grant the role to a member on the project level. The member has access to all service accounts in the project, including service accounts that are created in the future.

If you aren't familiar with service accounts, learn more about service accounts.

Google Cloud Console permission

To use the Google Cloud console to access Compute Engine resources, you must have a role that contains the following permission on the project:

compute.projects.get

Connecting to an instance as an instanceAdmin

After you grant a project member the roles/compute.instanceAdmin.v1 role, they can connect to virtual machine (VM) instances by using standard Google Cloud tools, like the gcloud CLI or SSH-in-browser.

When a member uses the gcloud CLI or SSH-in-browser, the tools automatically generate a public/private key pair and add the public key to the project metadata. If the member does not have permissions to edit project metadata, the tool adds the member's public key to the instance metadata instead.

If the member has an existing key pair they want to use, they can manually add their public key to the instance's metadata. Learn more about adding SSH keys to an instance.

IAM with service accounts

Create new custom service accounts and grant IAM roles to service accounts to limit the access of your instances. Use IAM roles with custom service accounts to:

  • Limit the access your instances have to Google Cloud APIs using granular IAM roles.
  • Give each instance, or set of instances, a unique identity.
  • Limit the access of your default service account.

Learn more about service accounts.

Managed instance groups and IAM

Managed instance groups (MIGs) are resources that perform actions on your behalf without direct user interaction. For example, the MIG can add and remove VMs from the group.

All of the operations performed by Compute Engine as part of the MIG are performed by the Google APIs Service Agent for your project, which has an email address like the following: PROJECT_ID@cloudservices.gserviceaccount.com

By default, the Google APIs Service Agent is granted the Editor role (roles/editor) at the project level, which gives enough privileges to create resources based on the MIG's configuration. If you're customizing access for the Google APIs Service Agent, then grant the Compute Instance Admin (v1) role (roles/compute.instanceAdmin.v1) and, optionally, the Service Account User role (roles/iam.serviceAccountUser). The Service Account User role is required only if the MIG creates VMs that can run as a service account.

Note that the Google APIs Service Agent is also used by other processes, including Deployment Manager.

When you create a MIG or update its instance template, Compute Engine validates that the Google APIs Service Agent has the following role and permissions:

  • Service Account User role, which is important if you plan to create instances that can run as a service account
  • Permissions to all the resources referenced from instance templates, such as images, disks, VPC networks, and subnets

Predefined Compute Engine IAM roles

With IAM, every API method in Compute Engine API requires that the identity making the API request has the appropriate permissions to use the resource. Permissions are granted by setting policies that grant roles to a member (user, group, or service account) of your project.

In addition to basic roles (viewer, editor, owner) and custom roles, you can assign the following Compute Engine predefined roles to the members of your project.

You can grant multiple roles to a project member on the same resource. For example, if your networking team also manages firewall rules, you can grant both roles/compute.networkAdmin and roles/compute.securityAdmin to the networking team's Google group.

The following tables describe the predefined Compute Engine IAM roles, as well as the permissions contained within each role. Each role contains a set of permissions that is suitable for a specific task. For example, the Instance Admin roles grant permissions to manage instances, the network-related roles include permissions to manage network-related resources, and the security role includes permissions to manage security-related resources, like firewalls and SSL certificates.

Some permissions are marked as owner permissions with A permission is an owner permission if one of the following is true:

  • The permission is in the Owner basic role, but not the Viewer or Editor basic roles.
  • The permission isn't in any basic role, but it allows principals to perform tasks that an account owner might perform—for example, manage billing.

Compute Admin role

Details Permissions

(roles/compute.admin)

Full control of all Compute Engine resources.

If the user will be managing virtual machine instances that are configured to run as a service account, you must also grant the roles/iam.serviceAccountUser role.

Lowest-level resources where you can grant this role:

  • Disk
  • Image
  • Instance
  • Instance template
  • Node group
  • Node template
  • Snapshot Beta

Contains 33 owner permissions

Compute Image User role

Details Permissions

(roles/compute.imageUser)

Permission to list and read images without having other permissions on the image. Granting this role at the project level gives users the ability to list all images in the project and create resources, such as instances and persistent disks, based on images in the project.

Lowest-level resources where you can grant this role:

  • ImageBeta

Compute Instance Admin (beta) role

Details Permissions

(roles/compute.instanceAdmin)

Permissions to create, modify, and delete virtual machine instances. This includes permissions to create, modify, and delete disks, and also to configure Shielded VM settings.

If the user will be managing virtual machine instances that are configured to run as a service account, you must also grant the roles/iam.serviceAccountUser role.

For example, if your company has someone who manages groups of virtual machine instances but does not manage network or security settings and does not manage instances that run as service accounts, you can grant this role on the organization, folder, or project that contains the instances, or you can grant it on individual instances.

Lowest-level resources where you can grant this role:

  • Disk
  • Image
  • Instance
  • Instance template
  • Snapshot Beta
