Service Description: Creates and manages Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources.

You can use this service to work with all of the following resources:

  • **Service accounts**, which identify an application or a virtual machine (VM) instance rather than a person
  • **Service account keys**, which service accounts use to authenticate with Google APIs
  • **IAM policies for service accounts**, which specify the roles that a member has for the service account
  • **IAM custom roles**, which help you limit the number of permissions that you grant to members

In addition, you can use this service to complete the following tasks, among others:

  • Test whether a service account can use specific permissions
  • Check which roles you can grant for a specific resource
  • Lint, or validate, condition expressions in an IAM policy
