This topic describes how to bind a DLA sub-account with a Resource Access Management (RAM) user.

Background information

DLA sub-accounts are used to control the features of the serverless Presto engine, whereas RAM users are used to control the features of the serverless Spark engine. After you bind a RAM user with a DLA sub-account, the serverless Presto engine and serverless Spark engine of DLA can access databases and tables stored on each other.

Procedure

  • If you have not created a DLA sub-account, perform the following operations to create a DLA sub-account and bind the sub-account with a RAM user:
    1. Log on to the DLA console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Account.
    3. On the Account page, click Create Child Account.
    4. In the Create Child Account panel, select a RAM user with which you want to bind the sub-account from the Bind RAM account drop-down list, and then click OK.
  • If you have created a DLA sub-account, perform the following operations to bind the sub-account with a RAM user.
    1. Log on to the DLA console.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Account.
    3. On the Account page, find the DLA sub-account that you want to bind with a RAM user, and click Bind RAM account in the Actions column. In the dialog box that appears, select a RAM user with which you want to bind the sub-account from the Bind RAM account drop-down list, and click OK.
Note
  • If the Bind RAM account drop-down list does not contain the required RAM user, you can create a RAM user. For more information, see RAM users and permissions.
  • A RAM user can be bound with only one DLA sub-account.
  • If a DLA sub-account has been bound with a RAM user, you cannot unbind the sub-account and bind it again. You must delete the DLA sub-account before you bind it again.
  • The RAM user that corresponds to the root account of DLA is the UID of the current Alibaba Cloud account. The root account is automatically bound with the Alibaba Cloud account when DLA creates the root account.
