Creating User Group

Last updated: 2021-08-04 16:01:52

    Overview

    A user group is a set of multiple users (sub-accounts) with the same function. The root account and sub-accounts with admin permissions can create different user groups based on business needs to batch authorize users and set message subscriptions for better management of users and their permissions.

    This document describes how to create a user group and associate a policy with it. You can assign your users into different groups for easier management. Users in a user group can manage the resources of the root account within the scope of the group's permissions.
