Member accounts are containers for resources in a resource directory. These accounts isolate resources and serve as organizational units in the resource directory. You can create member accounts in folders and manage them in a centralized manner.

Background information

  • For more information about the limit on the number of member accounts, see Limits on resource directories.
  • You can use one of the following methods to create a member account:
    • Choose Resource Directory > Overview. On the page that appears, click the Organization tab. Then, create a member account in an existing folder. Alternatively, you can create a folder and create a member account in the new folder. This topic describes this method.
    • Choose Resource Directory > Overview. On the page that appears, click the Member Accounts tab. On this tab, click Create Member Account. The created member account belongs to the Root folder by default. You need to move the member account to your desired folder. For more information about how to move a member account, see Move a member account.
    • Choose Resource Directory > Create Member. On the page that appears, create a member account. The created member account belongs to the Root folder by default. You need to move the member account to your desired folder. For more information about how to move a member account, see Move a member account.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Resource Management console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Resource Directory > Overview. The Organization tab appears.
  3. On the Organization tab, find the folder in which you want to create a member account and click the folder name.
  4. In the right-side section that appears, click Create Member Account.
  5. On the Create Member Account page, specify Account Name.
    The specified ID must be unique in the current resource directory.
  6. Specify Member Account Name.
  7. Specify Settlement.
    • Master Account: If you select this option, the enterprise management account of the resource directory is used as the settlement account.
    • Member Accounts: If you select this option, an existing member account in the resource directory is used as the settlement account. In this case, you must click Select Settlement Account to select a member account.
    • Self-pay: If you select this option, the member account that is being created is used as the settlement account.
    Note

    An account that does not have the payment capability cannot be selected. For more information about how to determine whether an account has the payment capability, see Introduction to trusteeship.

  8. Click OK.
    Note Member accounts created in a resource directory inherit the legal entity of the enterprise management account for the resource directory. This indicates that the real-name verification information of the member accounts is consistent with that of the enterprise management account.

Result

After member accounts are created in a resource directory, the system manages them in a centralized manner.

  • The system automatically activates the Resource Access Management (RAM) service for the member accounts.
  • The system automatically creates a RAM role named ResourceDirectoryAccountAccessRole for each member account and assigns the role to the enterprise management account of the resource directory. This way, you can use the enterprise management account to centrally manage the member accounts.
  • Each member account belongs to only one folder. You can use the enterprise management account to move member accounts between folders in the resource directory based on your business requirements. After a member account is moved from one folder to another, the resources within the member account are also moved to the new folder.
