This topic describes how to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console as a Resource Access Management (RAM) user. This topic also describes the logon portals and methods that you can use to log on to the console as a RAM user.

Logon portals

RAM provides the following logon portals for RAM users:

  • Common logon portals
  • Logon portal for an 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 Account Management section of the page that appears, view the logon URL of RAM users.Example: https://signin.alibabacloud.com/example.onaliyun.com/login.htm. RAM users can use this logon URL to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console.

  • Logon portal for a RAM user

    Add the username parameter to the logon URL of a RAM user. On the page that appears, click Next and enter the password of the RAM user to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console. You do not need to enter the username of the RAM user. The value of the username parameter is in the User Principal Name (UPN) format. The username of a RAM user is the logon name that is displayed in the RAM console. For example, you can use https://signin.alibabacloud.com/login.htm?username=Alice@example.onaliyun.com to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console as a RAM user named Alice@example.onaliyun.com.
