Resource Sharing allows you to share the resources of your Alibaba Cloud account with other accounts and also allow accessing the resources shared by other accounts. To share your resources with other accounts, you can create a resource share and add the resources and accounts to the resource share. If other resource owners share resources with you, you can access these resources without confirmation and perform specific operations on them. The operations you can perform vary based on the resource type.
In this blog, we are going to discuss how cloud resources can be shared among users that use the Alibaba cloud accounts in the same organizational structure as well as along different Alibaba Cloud accounts.
Step-1: For sharing the resource, select the “Resource I Share” option present in the resource sharing console as shown below.
