Enables a resource directory. After you enable a resource directory, the system automatically creates a root folder and sets the current account as the master account. The master account has all administrative permissions on this resource directory.

Note
  • An account can only be used to enable a resource directory after it passes enterprise real-name verification. An account that only passed individual real-name verification cannot be used to enable a resource directory.
  • We recommend that you only use the master account as the administrator of the resource directory. Do not use the master account to purchase cloud resources.
