Cloud Config:CreateAggregator

Last Updated:Sep 13, 2023

Creates an account group.

Operation Description

Each management account can create a maximum of five account groups. Each account group can contain a maximum of 200 member accounts.

Cloud Config supports the following types of account groups:

  • Global account group: The global account group contains all the member accounts that are added to the resource directory. A management account can create only one global account group.
  • Custom account group: If you create a custom account group, you must manually add all or specific member accounts from the resource directory to the custom account group.

This topic provides an example on how to create an account group of the CUSTOM type. The custom account group is named Test_Group, and its description is Test account group. The custom account group contains the following two member accounts:

  • Member account ID: 171322098523****. Member account name: Alice.
  • Member account ID: 100532098349****. Member account name: Tom.


You can run this interface directly in OpenAPI Explorer, saving you the trouble of calculating signatures. After running successfully, OpenAPI Explorer can automatically generate SDK code samples.
