Google Cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) service is a critical gateway for the entire platform. One of Cloud IAM's primary features is the ability to assign a range of roles, which determine the permissions available for targeted resources. There are a large number of pre-defined roles, with set permissions, available as well as the capability to create custom roles.

In this hands-on lab, you'll add a new member to the team with a pre-defined role of Compute Network Admin. Then, you'll expand that member's responsibilities to administering firewall rules by creating a custom role. Next, I'll show you how to combine both pre-defined and custom roles into a single custom role. Finally, you'll log in as the new member to verify the IAM permissions are working as expected.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
