How to create an IAM group

Reviewed on 06 December 2023Published on 20 June 2022

An IAM group is a grouping of users and/or applications. Groups allow you to attach policies to multiple users at the same time.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  1. Click Identity and Access Management (IAM) from your Organization Dashboard in the Scaleway console. The Users tab of the Identity and Access Management dashboard displays.

  2. Click the Groups tab. A list of the Organization’s existing IAM groups displays:

  3. Click + Create group. The group creation wizard displays:

  4. Complete the steps of the creation wizard:

    • Enter a name for the group, or use the auto-generated name suggested for you,
    • Add a tag (optional),

    Tags are key/value pairs that help you organize your users. Keep in mind that:

    • You can assign up to 10 tags per user
    • Tag values must be between 1 and 70 characters long, including key and value
    • The same tag cannot be used twice
    • Enter a description (optional),
    • Add members to the group (optional) by first selecting the type of member you want to add (user or application) and then selecting the specific user or application from the drop-down list. Click Add another member and repeat the process until you have added all the members you want,
    • Attach an existing policy to the group (optional). The members of the group will benefit from the access rights defined in this policy. Alternatively, you can choose not to attach a policy now and do so at a later stage.
  5. Click Create group to finish.

    You are returned to the list of your groups, where your newly created group now appears.
