This topic describes how to use a RAM user to log on to the DataWorks console, update the personal information of an alert contact, and create a workspace.

Prerequisites

The first time that you use a RAM user to log on to the DTplus console and use DataWorks, make sure that the following information is confirmed:
  • The enterprise alias of the Alibaba Cloud account to which the RAM user belongs.
  • The username and password of the RAM user.
  • An AccessKey ID and an AccessKey Secret are created for the RAM user by using your Alibaba Cloud account to meet your business requirements. DataWorks no longer requires you to provide the AccessKey pair information before you use DataWorks.
  • In the RAM console, you set Console Password Logon to Enabled for the RAM user in the Modify Logon Settings panel of the Users page.
If the preceding information cannot be confirmed, make sure that the Alibaba Cloud account to which the RAM user belongs meets the following requirements:

Log on to the DataWorks console

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console as a RAM user by using the link that is provided by your Alibaba Cloud account.
    Log on to the RAM console by using your Alibaba Cloud account. In the left-side navigation pane, click Overview. In the upper-right corner of the Overview page, click Copy to the right of the logon link specified by the RAM user logon parameter in the Account Management section and provide the link for a user that is allowed to access DataWorks as the RAM user. For more information about how to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console as a RAM user, see Log on to the console as a RAM user. RAM console
  2. On the homepage of the Alibaba Cloud Management Console, search for DataWorks and go to the DataWorks console.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
    Note After you log on to the DataWorks console as a RAM user, you can view only the workspaces to which you are added as a member on the Workspaces page.

    If no workspace is displayed on the Workspaces page, contact the administrator of the workspace to which you want to be added. The administrator can add you to the workspace on the User Management page of the Workspace Management page. For more information, see Manage workspace-level roles and members.

    If you want to use the RAM user to create a workspace, attach the AliyunDataWorksFullAccess policy to the RAM user by using your Alibaba Cloud account. For more information, see How do I grant a RAM user the permissions to create a DataWorks workspace?.

  4. Find the workspace that is created and click Data Development in the Actions column to go to the DataStudio page.

Update personal information

You can configure the personal information of a RAM user on the Alert Contacts page of DataWorks. The personal information is used to receive alert notifications that are triggered during data development and O&M in DataWorks. When an alert is triggered based on the alert rules that you configure for a node, the related alert notification is sent to the alert contact that you configure on the Alert Contacts page. This allows the alert contact to identify and handle the exception at the earliest opportunity. This section describes how to view and configure the personal information of an alert contact.

  1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Alerts. Click Alert Contacts. For more information about how to configure the personal information of an alert contact, see Configure and view alert contacts.

Create a workspace

To use a RAM user to create a workspace, you must attach the AliyunDataWorksFullAccess policy to the RAM user by using your Alibaba Cloud account. For more information, see Prepare a RAM user and Create a workspace.
