Before Bastionhost users can perform O&M operations on hosts, the administrator must create Bastionhost users in a Bastionhost instance. This topic describes how to import Alibaba Cloud RAM users to a Bastionhost instance as Bastionhost users.


  • RAM users are created under the Alibaba Cloud account for which the Bastionhost instance is created. For information about how to create RAM users, see Create a RAM user.
  • RAM users to be imported are bound to virtual multi-factor authentication (MFA) devices if necessary. For information about how to bind a RAM user to a virtual MFA device, see Enable an MFA device for a RAM user.


  1. Find your bastion host and click Manage. For more information, see Log on to Bastionhost.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Users > Users.
  3. On the Users page, click Import RAM Users.
  4. In the Import RAM Users dialog box, select the RAM users you want to import.
