Example of using SDK for Python

The following example uses SDK for Python to describe how to create a resource account:

#! /usr/bin/env python
#coding = utf - 8
from aliyunsdkcore.client import AcsClient
from aliyunsdkcore.acs_exception.exceptions import ClientException
from aliyunsdkcore.acs_exception.exceptions import ServerException
from aliyunsdkresourcemanager.request.v20200331.CreateResourceAccountRequest import CreateResourceAccountRequest
# Construct an Alibaba Cloud client to send requests.
# When you construct the client, configure the AccessKey ID and AccessKey secret.
# Resource Management is a global service. However, the Resource Management API endpoint is located in the China (Shanghai) region. Therefore, set the region to cn-shanghai.
client = AcsClient('<accessKeyId>', '<accessSecret>', 'cn-shanghai')
# Construct the request object.
request = CreateResourceAccountRequest()
# Specify the required parameters.
# Issue the request and obtain a response.
response = client.do_action_with_exception(request)
#python2: print(response)
print(str(response, encoding = 'utf-8'))
