This topic describes the information about the accounts of the PolarDB console and the PolarDB clusters.
You can use the following accounts to log on to the console:
- Alibaba Cloud account: After you create an Alibaba Cloud account, all your Alibaba Cloud resources are managed under this account. All the charges of these resources are deducted from the Alibaba Cloud account. You must create an Alibaba Cloud account before you purchase Alibaba Cloud services.
- RAM user: This account is optional. You can create and manage RAM users in the Resource Access Management (RAM) console so that you can share the resources of your Alibaba Cloud account to different users. RAM users do not own resources. The charges of the resources consumed by RAM users are billed to the Alibaba Cloud account.
