Prerequisites

Before you accept an invitation, make sure that your Alibaba Cloud account does not belong to a resource directory.

Background information

After your account joins a resource directory, the management account of the resource directory has all the permissions on your account. You cannot proactively remove your account from the resource directory. Only the management account of the resource directory can be used to remove your account.
