The following example shows how to use Resource Management SDK for PHP to call the CreateResourceAccount API operation. You can visit OpenAPI Explorer to debug other API operations and obtain their sample code.

use AlibabaCloud\Client\AlibabaCloud;
use AlibabaCloud\Client\Exception\ClientException;
use AlibabaCloud\Client\Exception\ServerException;
// Construct an Alibaba Cloud client that is used to initiate requests.
// When you construct the client, specify your AccessKey ID and AccessKey secret.
AlibabaCloud::accessKeyClient('<accessKeyId>', '<accessSecret>')
// Configure parameters and initiate a request.
try {
    $result = AlibabaCloud::rpc()
                          // ->scheme('https') // https | http
                                        'query' => [
                                          'RegionId' => "cn-hangzhou",
                                          'DisplayName' => "<DisplayName>",
} catch (ClientException $e) {
    echo $e->getErrorMessage() . PHP_EOL;
} catch (ServerException $e) {
    echo $e->getErrorMessage() . PHP_EOL;
