The following table describes Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles that are associated with Cloud Run, and lists the permissions that are contained in each role.
Roles can be granted to users on an entire project or on individual services. Read Managing access using IAM to learn more.
Roles only apply to Cloud Run services, they do not apply
to Cloud Run domain mappings. The
Project > Editor role
is needed to create or update domain mappings.

For a reference describing the IAM permissions contained in each IAM role, refer to Cloud Run IAM Permissions.
For developers that want to define their own roles containing bundles of permissions that they specify, IAM offers custom roles.
If the role contains permissions that let a developer deploy services, then you must perform the additional configuration below.
A user needs the following permissions to deploy new Cloud Run services or revisions:
run.services.updateon the project level are required.
run.services.getis not strictly required, but is recommended in order to read the status of the created service. Typically assigned through the
roles/run.adminrole. It can be changed in the project permissions admin page.
