This topic describes how to create an AccessKey pair for a RAM user. An AccessKey pair is a long-term credential for a RAM user. A RAM user can use an AccessKey pair to access Alibaba Cloud resources by calling API operations or by using other development tools.
- Log on to the RAM console by using an Alibaba Cloud account.
- In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
- In the User Logon Name/Display Name column, click the username of the target RAM user.
- In the User AccessKeys section, click Create AccessKey.
- Click OK.
- The AccessKey secret is displayed only when you create an AccessKey pair, and is unavailable for subsequent queries. We recommend that you save the AccessKey secret for subsequent use.
- If the AccessKey pair is disclosed or lost, you must create a new one. You can create a maximum of two AccessKey pairs.
