IAMPolicy

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.

GetIamPolicy

rpc GetIamPolicy(GetIamPolicyRequest) returns (Policy)

Gets the access control policy for a resource. Returns an empty policy if the resource exists and does not have a policy set.

Authorization Scopes

Requires the following OAuth scope:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform

For more information, see the Authentication Overview.

SetIamPolicy

rpc SetIamPolicy(SetIamPolicyRequest) returns (Policy)

Sets the access control policy on the specified resource. Replaces any existing policy.

Can return NOT_FOUND, INVALID_ARGUMENT, and PERMISSION_DENIED errors.

TestIamPermissions

rpc TestIamPermissions(TestIamPermissionsRequest) returns (TestIamPermissionsResponse)

Returns permissions that a caller has on the specified resource. If the resource does not exist, this will return an empty set of permissions, not a NOT_FOUND error.

Note: This operation is designed to be used for building permission-aware UIs and command-lin
