Access Policy Syntax

    Authorizing a Sub-User

    1. Log in to the CAM Console with the root account, select the target sub-user in the user list, and click Authorize.

    2. In the pop-up dialog box, select a preset policy and click OK to complete the authorization.

    • QcloudDMCFullAccess: full access to Database Management Console (DMC). It grants you permissions to use all DMC features, including adding or removing a TencentDB instance, logging in to a database, and so on.
    • QcloudDMCReadOnlyAccess: read-only access to DMC. It grants you permissions to view DMC pages but not to create any tasks.

    Policy Syntax

    CAM policy:

                  "condition": {"key":{"value"}} 
    • version is required. Currently, only the value "2.0" is allowed.
    • statement describes the details of one or more permissions, and therefore contains the permission(s) of other elements such as effect, action, resource, and condition. One policy has only one statement.
    • effect is required. It describes the result of a statement. The result can be an "allow" or an explicit "deny".
    • action is required. It describes the allowed or denied operation. An operation can be an API (prefixed with "dmc:").
    • resource is required. It describes the details of authorization. A resource is described in a six-segment format. Detailed resource definitions vary by product.
    • condition is required. It describes the condition for the policy to take effect. Conditions consist of operators, operation keys, and operation values. A condition value may contain information such as time and IP address. Some services allow you to specify additional values in a condition.

    DMC Operations

    You can use DMC policy statements to authorize any API operations for any services that support DMC. To authorize DMC operations, please specify the APIs prefixed with "dmc:", such as "dmc:DescribeSlowLogTopSqls" and "dmc:DescribeSlowLogTimeSeriesStats".

    To specify multiple operations in a single statement, separate them with commas as shown below:


    You can also specify multiple operations using a wildcard. For example, you can specify all operations whose names begin with "Describe" as shown below:


    To specify all DMC operations, use the wildcard (*) as shown below:


    Resources That Can Be Manipulated by DMC

    Each CAM policy statement for DMC is resource-specific. DMC allows you to operate TencentDB resources added to DMC.
    The format is shown below:

    • project_id: describes the project information and is only used to enable compatibility with legacy CAM logic. It can be left empty.
    • service_type: product abbreviation, such as "dmc".
    • region: region information, such as "ap-guangzhou".
    • account: the root account information of the resource owner, such as "uin/65xxx763".
    • resource: detailed resource information of each product, such as "instance/instance_id1" or "instance/*".

    For example, you can specify an instance (dmc-k05xdcta) in the statement as shown below:

    "resource":[ "qcs::dmc:ap-guangzhou:uin/65xxx763:instance/dmc-k05xdcta"]

    You can also use the wildcard (*) to specify all instances that belong to a specific account as shown below:

    "resource":[ "qcs::dmc:ap-guangzhou:uin/65xxx763:instance/*"]

    If you want to specify all resources or if a specific API operation does not support resource-level permission control, you can use the wildcard (*) in the resource element as shown below:

    "resource": ["*"]

    To specify multiple resources in a single statement, separate them with commas. In the following example, we specified two resources:


    The table below describes the resources that can be used by TencentDB and the corresponding resource description methods, where words prefixed with "$" are placeholders, "region" refers to a region, and "account" refers to an account ID.
