Hi All , Can some one explain the difference between
gcp.projects.IAM*
&
gcp.serviceAccount.IAM*
. How and when to use these two ?

Project level
IAM*
applies to every resource on the project. So if you give the base
viewer
role at that level to a user, the user would be able to see everything in the project
serviceAccount.IAM*
or the
IAM*
under any other resource applies to only one of that particular resource. If you give the same role to a user but using the
serviceAccount.IAM*
resources, you'd need to specify a service account and the user would only be able to see that service account and no other resource in the project

What might be confusing is that
serviceAccount.IAM*
are used to give permissions regarding a particular service account, not necessarily to a service account (although it can be)
