Introduction

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a service to help you control access to FortiCloud portals and assets. You can use the portal to manage users, authentication credentials, and asset permissions.

FortiCloud IAM Features

IAM user

You can create and manage the new IAM user type associated with your FortiCloud account. You can also migrate a sub user in a FortiCloud account to the IAM portal.

Granular Permissions

The IAM portal allows you to set the user permissions for portals and assets:

  • Portal Permissions include Admin, ReadWrite, Undefinded, and Custom. Permissions vary depending on the cloud portal.

  • Asset Permissions are folder based and are defined in the Asset Management Portal. Asset permissions can be assigned to individual users or groups.

IAM user Groups

IAM Users can be organized into groups. The group level permissions can be configured for portals and assets.

Multi-factor Authentication (2FA)

The new IAM user type supports two-factor (2FA) for added security.

IAM API User

Use the IAM portal to create and manage IAM API users for programmatic access to the API.
