Authorize a RAM user account

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2019

This topic describes how to authorize a RAM user account to use the features of ECI.

You can use an Alibaba Cloud account to manage ECI resources. However, when a RAM user account is created, it has no permissions to manage the resources of the Alibaba Cloud account. Therefore, you need to authorize the RAM user account before you use it to manage ECI resources.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the RAM console.

  2. You can check whether you have RAM user accounts on the RAM Overview page of the RAM console. If you do not have any RAM user accounts, create a RAM user account. For more information, see Create RAM user accounts.

  3. If you already have RAM user accounts, click Users in the left-side navigation pane in the RAM console and find the RAM user account to be authorized, as shown in the following figure.Authorize a RAM user account
