If you are using AWS Cloud, then you can use the IAM service. Create one IAM user and give access according to your requirement. If you don't find any policy created previously, then create your own customized policy.

Yes, Im using AWS Cloud. But how can i use IAM policy for this. Because Administrator user should have all access in windows server whereas Standard user should not access all services except own APP. Is possible through AWS IAM policy?


Ok understood. Think in this way, say you have a Windows system with you and you have another one who suppose to use your system for some purpose. In this case, you can't give the root access right. In this scenario, we generally create one user and assign some roles to that user.
