Advanced Database & Application Migration (ADAM) is integrated with Alibaba Cloud Resource Access Management (RAM). This topic describes how to authorize a RAM user to log on to the ADAM console.


Before a RAM user can log on to the ADAM console, the RAM user must meet the following prerequisites:

  • An AccessKey pair is created for the RAM user. An AccessKey pair consists of an AccessKey ID and an AccessKey secret.
  • Console logon is enabled. A logon username and a password are specified for the RAM user.

For more information, see Create a RAM user.

Background information

Before a RAM user can use the ADAM console, you must grant required permissions to the RAM user. You can grant full access permissions or read-only permissions to the RAM user in the ADAM console.
Note RAM users of an Alibaba Cloud account inherit the data of the account. The data generated by a RAM user is accessible to all RAM users of the Alibaba Cloud account.


  1. Log on to the RAM console by using your Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Identities > Users.
  3. On the Users page, find the RAM user and click Add Permissions in the Actions column.
  4. In the Add Permissions dialog box, specify the Authorization and Select Policy parameters.
    You can add the following permission policies for the RAM user:
    • AliyunADAMFullAccess: grants the RAM user full access permissions on ADAM.
    • AliyunADAMReadOnlyAccess: grants the RAM user read-only permissions on ADAM.
    Add Permission
  5. Click OK to complete the authorization. Then, you can log on to the ADAM console as a RAM user.
