Helps users provide or revoke accesses whenever needed
I don't think there is any need for improvement in the product since everything has been created architecturally by AWS. AWS has given all the features in the tool. In the product, two groups cannot have the same name. There will be a conflict if the same name is provided to two groups in the tool. If you want to say something to another user, the tool fails to identify which group out of the two having the same name is involved in the activity. In general, the tool does not allow for the duplication of names. The aforementioned area can be considered for improvement in the product.
