This topic introduces the basic concepts of PolarDB console accounts and PolarDB cluster accounts.
You can use the following accounts to log on to the console:
Alibaba Cloud account: This account allows flexible control of all your Alibaba Cloud resources and is used for billing purposes. You must create an Alibaba Cloud account before you purchase Alibaba Cloud services.
- RAM user: Optional. You can create and manage RAM users in the Resource Access Management (RAM) console to share resources among multiple users. A RAM user does not have ownership over resources. Charges incurred are billed to the Alibaba Cloud account.
