Last Updated: Oct 11, 2021


This topic describes the scenarios of the service linked role for Global Traffic Manager (GTM) and how to delete the service linked role. The service linked role is named AliyunServiceRoleForGTM, which is a Resource Access Management (RAM) role.


GTM may need to access other cloud services to implement its own functions. Alibaba Cloud provides the service linked role that allows GTM to access other cloud services. For more information about service linked roles, see Service-linked roles.


The alert group feature in GTM requires access to the cloud service resources of Cloud Monitor. GTM obtains permission to access these resources by using its service linked role. When you use this feature, the service linked role is automatically created. You do not need to manually create the role.
