I few days since I posted last. I had to pause and do other things. I figured this should not stop me from continuing. I'll work towards building the habit of consistency and not breaking, but I am taking it more softly.
Today I learnt about Cloud IAM.
Cloud IAM is Google Cloud Platform’s unified system for managing access to resources and assigning permissions for users and services to access those resources.
Cloud IAM Lab on qwiklabs
I did the lab I looked forward to. I'm already feeling like a cloud architect!(I know I still have a long way to go though lol). The lab was legit really cool!
In the lab I:
Used Cloud IAM to implement access control
Restricted access to specific features or resources
Used the Service Account User role
I exercised granting and revoking Cloud IAM roles, first to a user, Username 2, and then to a Service Account User. You could allocate Service Account User credentials and "bake" them into a VM to create specific-purpose authorized bastion hosts.
I may write less frequently now, and sometimes a tweet does the magic for me. But I initiated a for loop that will only stop when i = 100!!!
