Package google.iam.v1



API Overview

Manages Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies.

Any implementation of an API that offers access control features implements the google.iam.v1.IAMPolicy interface.

Data model

Access control is applied when a principal (user or service account), takes some action on a resource exposed by a service. Resources, identified by URI-like names, are the unit of access control specification. Service implementations can choose the granularity of access control and the supported permissions for their resources. For example one database service may allow access control to be specified only at the Table level, whereas another might allow access control to also be specified at the Column level.

Policy Structure

See google.iam.v1.Policy

This is intentionally not a CRUD style API because access control policies are created and deleted implicitly with the resources to which they are attached.
