Each Alibaba Cloud account has a default domain name, and the domain name can be used by its RAM users to log on to the RAM console. This topic describes how to change the default domain name to customize the logon name suffix of RAM users for easy identification.


  1. Log on to the RAM console by using an Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Settings under Identities.
  3. Click the Advanced tab. On this tab, you can view and update the Default Domain parameter.
    • View the Default Domain parameter. The format of the Default Domain parameter is <AccountAlias>.onaliyun.com. The default value of the AccountAlias element is your Alibaba Cloud account ID. If you have not created an account alias, the format of the Default Domain parameter is <AccountID>.onaliyun.com.
    • Update the Default Domain parameter. To update the parameter, click Update. In the Update Domain pane, specify an account alias, and click OK.

What to do next

RAM users can then use the updated domain name to log on to the RAM console.

To log on to the RAM console as a RAM user by using the updated domain name, specify the logon name in the format of <username>@<AccountAlias>.onaliyun.com. For more information, see Log on to the console as a RAM user.

The use of default domain names simplifies the procedure to configure SAML for user-based SSO. For more information, see Configure the SAML settings of Alibaba Cloud for user-based SSO.
