Use the Alibaba Cloud Management Console

Last Updated: Nov 29, 2021

The Alibaba Cloud Management Console is a web application that provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for you to manage Alibaba Cloud services. You can also manage Alibaba Cloud services by using API operations, SDKs, and Alibaba Cloud CLI.

Use Alibaba Cloud services

The Alibaba Cloud Management Console provides a unified entry point for all Alibaba Cloud services. In most cases, you must activate a cloud service before you can access the console of the cloud service and manage the cloud service.

  2. Move the pointer over the Menus icon in the upper-left corner. The Products and Services page appears.

  3. Click the name of a cloud service. Then, you are redirected to the console of the cloud service.

Save your frequently accessed consoles

To facilitate subsequent access, you can click the star icon to the right of a cloud service or click Add Shortcut to save the console of the cloud service as a frequently accessed console.
