  • You can register database instances and manage them in the DMS Enterprise console as required.

    • DMS Enterprise supports various types of databases such as MySQL, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MongoDB, and OceanBase.
    • DMS Enterprise supports RDS databases in classic networks or VPCs, ECS-hosted databases in classic networks or VPCs, and user-built databases in public networks. When registering an ECS-hosted database, you must specify the ID of the ECS instance on which the database is hosted.
  • You can use the following methods to register database instances:

    • Manual registration: Set the parameters for registering a database instance in the DMS Enterprise console.
    • Automatic registration: Synchronize the RDS instances under your Alibaba Cloud account to DMS Enterprise with one click.
      • If you want to manage an RDS instance in the DMS Enterprise console, edit the username, password, and security rule of the instance and save the edits.
  • Compared to traditional data management software solutions, DMS Enterprise has the following features:

    • Users can use the DMS Enterprise console to access databases in a uniform way, freeing them from using a database account and password to log on to databases.
      • DMS Enterprise uses permissions to control users' access to databases. Users need to apply for the required access permission on the target database, table, or field that they want to operate in the DMS Enterprise console.

User management

  • You can register users who need to use databases in your enterprise, including R&D engineers, test engineers, product managers, technical support, DBAs, and data warehouse business intelligence (BI) engineers.
  • You can use the following methods to register users:
    • Manual registration: Specify the IDs of the Alibaba Cloud accounts of the users to be registered.
    • Automatic registration: Synchronize the Resource Access Management (RAM) user accounts under your Alibaba Cloud account to DMS Enterprise with one click.

Security rules

  • You must set a security rule for each database instance. The security rule defines the rules for various operations on the database instance as follows:
    • Specifies whether to allow an operation to be performed in a functional module.
    • Specifies whether an operation requires approval if it is allowed.
    • Specifies an approval process for an operation if it requires approval.
    • Specifies approval nodes involved in an approval process.
  • Tips
    • By default, the system provides three levels of security rules: high, medium, and low. In actual use, you can name your security rules in a fine-grained manner based on the importance of different businesses. For example, you can name a security rule Production core or Production edge.
