IAM User Detail - Quotas

This page allows you to view and edit the details for an IAM user.

Quotas tab

This tab lets you define limits on resources that this user is allowed to create. The quotas you define will be saved as a policy that will appear in the user's policy list.


In this section, you can define limits on what resources your users can create.

  1. Expand the section for each service that you want to specify limits for, and type in the maximum number of that resource in the text field. Leaving a text field blank means no limit is assigned to that resource.
  2. When you are finished setting quotas, click the Save Quotas button to save your work, or click the Cancel button to cancel.

Actions menu

Clicking the Actions button brings up a menu of actions that you can perform on the selected user.

The following context menu actions are available:


This item deletes the selected user's password and creates an IAM access "deny all actions" policy that prevents them from executing any actions against the cloud. The user's other information, including active access keys, is maintained until you either make the user active again or delete them.


This item allows you to delete the specified user.
Note: This menu item deletes the selected user and all keys, passwords and permissions associated with that user.
