Overview

A collection that provides access to IAM users belonging to this account.

users = iam.users

Creating A User

To create an IAM user you need only provide a user name.

user = users.create('username')

You can also provide an optional :path that can be used to organize users.

user = users.create('johndoe', :path => '/staff/customer_support/')

Getting a User by Name

You can get a referene to a user by using array notation:

user = users['username']

Enumerating Users

A user collection can also be used to enumerate users:

users.each do |user|
  puts user.name
end

Path Prefixes

You can also find/enumerate users who's path begins with a given prefix:

users.each(:path_prefix => '/staff/developers/ruby').each do |ruby_dev|
  puts "#{ruby_dev.name} is awesome!"
end
