IAM permissions reference

This page lists all Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions and the predefined roles that grant them.

For a list of all IAM roles and the permissions that they contain, see the predefined roles reference.

You can also create your own custom roles that contain exactly the permissions you specify.

Some permissions might be associated with and checked by third parties. These permissions contain the third party's service and domain name in the permission prefix.
