This topic describes how to create a domain alias for an Alibaba Cloud account. A domain alias is an additional domain name that points to your default domain name. RAM users under your Alibaba Cloud account can use your domain alias that can be resolved on the Internet to log on to the RAM console.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the RAM console by using your Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Identities, and click Settings.
  3. Click the Advanced tab, and click Create Domain Alias.
  4. Enter a domain alias.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Domain Ownership Verification to verify the domain ownership.
    Note Before you perform domain ownership verification, make sure that you have added a TXT record for the domain alias in the system of your domain service provider. After you add a domain alias, a random code is generated for domain ownership verification. Copy the verification code, and then click Domain Ownership Verification to verify the domain ownership.

What to do next

After the domain alias is created, the RAM users under your Alibaba Cloud account can use the domain alias to log on to the RAM console.

To log on to the RAM console as a RAM user by using the domain alias, enter the logon name in the format of <$username>@<$DomainAlias>. For more information, see Log on to the console as a RAM user.

The use of domain aliases also simplifies the procedure to configure the SAML for user-based SSO. For more information, see Configure the SAML for user-based SSO.
