This topic describes how to add workspace members and grant roles to them. In addition, this topic describes the permissions of each role.

Note If you want to perform all operations in your workspace by using only the Alibaba Cloud account, you can skip this topic and directly create tables and import data. For more information, see Create tables and import data.

For more information about the permissions of Alibaba Cloud accounts and Resource Access Management (RAM) users in MaxCompute and DataWorks, see Users and Roles.

For more information about the permission relationships between MaxCompute and DataWorks, see Permission relationship between MaxCompute and DataWorks.

If you want to use DTplus together with others, create RAM users, create a workspace, and then follow instructions in this topic to add members to your workspace. For more information about how to create RAM users and workspaces, see Prepare a RAM user and Create Workspace.

You can log on to the DTplus console by using an Alibaba Cloud account or as a RAM user.

Billing rule for RAM users

An Alibaba Cloud account owns Alibaba Cloud resources. Resource usage is measured and billed to the Alibaba Cloud account. You can use the Alibaba Cloud account to create RAM users for your enterprise. You can also use the Alibaba Cloud account to manage and grant permissions to RAM users.

RAM users are created and managed by the Alibaba Cloud account in the RAM system. RAM users do not own resources, so the resource usage of a RAM user is not measured and billed to the RAM user. The Alibaba Cloud account centrally controls all RAM users, including the payment for resources used by RAM users.

    You can grant the following roles to workspace members: Owner, Space Administrator, Developer, Administration Expert, Deployment Expert, Visitor, and Security Expert. The creator of a workspace is granted the Space Administrator role by default.

    Role Description
    Owner The owner of a workspace has full permissions on the workspace.
    Space Administrator A workspace administrator has all permissions of the Developer and Administration Expert roles. In addition, a workspace administrator can manage the workspace. For example, a workspace administrator can add and delete workspace members, and create custom resource groups.
    Developer A developer designs and maintains nodes on the DataStudio page.
    Administration Expert An administration expert manages the running of all nodes in a workspace in Operation Center.
    Deployment Expert In a workspace in standard mode, a deployment expert reviews the code of each node and determines whether to commit the nodes to Operation Center.
    Visitor A visitor can only view workflows and code on the DataStudio page.
    Security Expert A security expert can only perform operations in Data Security Guard. For more information, see Data Security Guard.
    Note After you add a RAM user as a workspace member, the RAM user can log on to the DataWorks console and access your workspace. The RAM user must update the AccessKey in the DTplus console after the logon. For more information, see Use a RAM user.
    The following table compares the permissions of roles in MaxCompute projects and DataWorks workspaces.
    MaxCompute role MaxCompute permission DataWorks role DataWorks permission
    Project owner This role has all permissions on a MaxCompute project. None None
    Super_Administrator This role has permissions on all types of resources in a project and management permissions. None None

    When you create a project, the system creates an Admin role for it and grants the following permissions to the role: access to all objects in the project, management of users or roles, and authorization of user or role permissions.

    Unlike a project owner, an Admin role cannot grant the permissions of the Admin role to users, set security policies for workspaces, or change the authentication models of workspaces. The permissions of an Admin role cannot be changed.

    The project owner can assign an Admin role to a user so that the user is authorized for security management.
