RAM user billing

Alibaba Cloud account (or the primary account) represents the ownership of Alibaba Cloud resources and is the main account for metering and billing resource usage. The primary account allows you to create RAM users for your enterprise to manage, and authorize permissions.

Created and managed by the primary account in RAM , the RAM user has no resources, and therefore cannot be metered and billed separately. All RAM users are controlled and paid by their primary account.
