This topic provides answers to commonly asked questions about enabling a resource directory.

Why am I unable to enable a resource directory?

Possible causes are as follows:

  • You have not completed real-name verification.
  • The current account is already in a resource directory.

Which accounts cannot be used as the master account of a resource directory?

  • An account that has a pending invitation

    Solution: Process the invitation and then enable the resource directory.

  • An account whose resources have services or applications deployed

    Solution: A master account performs high-permission operations for a resource directory, such as structure management, user permission management, and resource payment. Therefore, to ensure the security of a master account, we recommend that you create an Alibaba Cloud account and use this account as the master account.
