Create IAM Users

Eucalyptus allows you to manage user permissions using IAM users and groups. This page allows you to add IAM users to your cloud.

Create new users

Add the details of your new user:

  1. Type the name of your new user.
  2. Click Add User to add the user to the list of users to create.
    Note: The admin user will be created automatically for each account as part of the account creation, and therefore, adding it manually is not allowed.
  3. If you want to remove a user from the list of users to create, click the minus icon next to the user in the list.
    Note: The admin user cannot be deleted.
  4. Select one or both options to apply to all the users you want to create, including the admin user:
    • Create and download random password.
    • Create and download access keys.


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

Expand the section for each service that you want to specify limits for, and type in the maximum number of that resource that the user is allowed to create in the text field. Leaving a text field blank means no limit is assigned to that resource.


In this section, you can specify a path for the new user in the Path text box field.

For more information, see IAM Identifiers.
