This topic describes how to install RAM SDK for Go and provides an example about how to use the SDK for Go.

Background information

  • Alibaba Cloud provides OpenAPI Explorer to simplify API usage. You can use OpenAPI Explorer to debug API operations and dynamically generate SDK sample code.
  • For information about RAM API operations, see RAM API.

For information about how to install the SDK for Go, see Get started.

You can download the installation packages of the SDK for Go from the following links:


The following code provides an example on how to call the CreateUser API operation by using the SDK for Go. For information about other API operations, visit OpenAPI Explorer, debug API operations, and obtain sample code.

package main

import (

func main() {
    // Construct an Alibaba Cloud client that is used to initiate requests.
    // When you construct the client, specify the AccessKey ID and AccessKey secret.
    client, err := ram.NewClientWithAccessKey("cn-hangzhou", "<accessKeyId>", "<accessSecret>")

    request := ram.CreateCreateUserRequest()
    request.Scheme = "https"
    // Configure parameters.
    request.UserName = "<UserName>"
    // Initiate a request and obtain a response.
    response, err := client.CreateUser(request)
    if err ! = nil {
    fmt.Printf("response is %#v\n", response)
