    Directions

    Associating a policy with a sub-user

    Direct association

    You can directly associate a policy with a user to give them the permissions included in the policy.

    1. Log in to the CAM Console and enter User List.
    2. Locate the sub-user you want to grant permission to.
    3. Click Grant Permission in the "Operation" column on the right.
    4. In the "Associate Policies" window that pops up, select one or more policies to be associated.
    5. Click OK to associate the policies with the sub-user.

    Association via group

    You can add a user to a user group to automatically grant the user permissions included in the policies that are associated with the user group. The policy types obtained by the user in this method depend on the policies associated with the user group. If you need to disassociate the user from a policy that is associated with the user group, you must remove the user from the user group.

    1. Log in to the CAM Console and enter User List.
    2. Locate the sub-user you want to grant permission to.
    3. Click More > Add to Group in the "Operation" column on the right.
    4. Select one or more user groups you want to add the sub-user to.
    5. Click OK to add the sub-user to the user groups and associate the sub-user with the group-associated policies.
