Resource Management:DeleteAccount

Last Updated:Dec 18, 2023

Deletes a member of the resource account type.

Operation description

Before you delete a member, we recommend that you call the CheckAccountDelete and GetAccountDeletionCheckResult operations to check whether the member meets deletion requirements. You can call the DeleteAccount operation to delete only members that meet the deletion requirements.

After you submit a deletion request for a member, you can call the GetAccountDeletionStatus operation to query the deletion status of the member. After a member is deleted, the resources and data within the member are deleted, and you can no longer use the member to log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console. In addition, the member cannot be recovered. Proceed with caution. For more information about how to delete a member, see Delete a member of the resource account type.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.
