You can grant the permissions on DTS to a RAM user, and then access DTS as a RAM user. This helps you distinguish between different permissions and improve account security.

Permission policies

DTS supports read/write and read-only policies.
Note API-level permission control is not supported.
  • Read/write policy: AliyunDTSFullAccess

    This policy grants the read/write permission on DTS. If this policy is attached to a RAM user, the RAM user can purchase, configure, and manage DTS instances.

  • Read-only policy: AliyunDTSReadOnlyAccess
    This policy grants the read permission on DTS. If this policy is attached to a RAM user, the RAM user can view the details and configurations of all DTS tasks under the Alibaba Cloud account. However, the RAM user cannot perform change operations.
    Note Change operations include the purchase, configuration, and management of DTS instances.
