Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video IAM user account types, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting PaaS Products.
- [Instructor] Within IAM there are several entities…or types of objects that we're going to be able to create.…One of those is the user objects.…So let's take a look and see…what the IAM users can do for us.…For one, a user actually represents a person.…It could represent a service…but more often it is actually a human…and we're trying to control what type of access they have,…whether it's to the console or to the APIs.…Each user exists in exactly one AWS account.…
And all of the actions that that user takes…are billed to that one account.…So each individual user wouldn't actually have…it's own billing mechanism.…All of the things that one person,…or one user within the account will actually do…are then billed to that same account…where the object was created.…There is a default account that's called the root user.…Now root has full access to the system…but it's not recommended that you use this…on a regular basis.…We'll talk more about this coming up…but understand that root is not an IAM user.…
It actually exists outside of IAM…
