Dataplex IAM permissions

Dataplex permissions allow users to perform specific actions on Dataplex services, resources, and operations. For example, the dataplex.lake.create permission allows a user to create Dataplex lakes in your project. You don't directly give users permissions; instead, you grant them roles, which have one or more permissions bundled within them.
