An invitee can view the information of an invitation on the resource directory enabling page or in an invitation email and then choose to accept or reject the invitation.

Prerequisites

Before you accept an invitation, ensure that your Alibaba Cloud account does not belong to any resource directory.

Background information

When you accept the invitation, carefully read relevant information and ensure that you understand all potential risks. After your account joins a resource directory, the master account of the resource directory has all the permissions on your account. You cannot proactively remove your account from the resource directory. Only the master account of the resource directory can be used to remove your account.

Accept an invitation

  1. Log on to the Resource Management console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Resource Directory. In the Get started with Resource Directory section, click View Invitation.
    Note You can also click the link in the invitation email to go to the Received Invitations page.
  3. On the Received Invitations page, find the target invitation and click Accept Invitation in the Actions column.
    • If your account uses the same real name as the master account of the resource directory, you must carefully read relevant information and ensure that you understand all the potential risks displayed in the Accept Invitation dialog box. Then, click Accept Invitation.
    • If your account uses a different real name from the master account of the resource directory, you also need to enter the real name of the master account in the Accept Invitation dialog box. Then, click Accept Invitation.
      Note The feature of inviting Alibaba Cloud accounts that use different real names from the master account of a resource directory is in the public preview phase. Before the master account is used to invite such an Alibaba Cloud account, the owner of the master account must contact the customer business manager (CBM) and apply for an invitation qualification for the master account. Otherwise, the invitee fails to accept the invitation.

After your account joins the resource directory, you can click Settings in the upper-right corner of the Resource Directory page and then view information about the resource directory on the Settings page.
