You can create a Resource Access Management (RAM) user account and then grant the RAM user required permissions to access Data Transmission Service (DTS) functionalities. In this way, you can assign different permissions to different users.

Permission policies

DTS provides two system permission policies, for read/write and read-only operations, respectively.
Note API operation-level access control is not supported.
  • Read/write policy: AliyunDTSFullAccess

    This policy grants the read/write permission on DTS. RAM users with this permission policy can purchase, configure, and manage DTS instances and tasks.

  • Read-only policy: AliyunDTSReadOnlyAccess

    This policy grants the read permission on DTS. RAM users with this permission policy can view the details and configurations of all DTS tasks under the Alibaba Cloud account. However, these RAM users cannot perform change operations.
