Note:

  1. An AccessKeySecret can only be viewed or downloaded during access key creation process. For security reasons, you cannot view or download it once the access key has been created. If an access key is lost, you must create a new one. The newly created access key represents the same user identity as the old one. Different access keys for the same RAM user are equivalent.
  2. It is recommended that you change application access keys regularly to avoid any risk of access key disclosure.

For information on how to grant permissions to RAM users, refer to RAM User Authorization.
