Resource Center is free of charge. You can use this service immediately after you activate it.

Note Resource Center is an upgrade of Resource Meta Center (RMC). If you have activated RMC, you can use Resource Center without the need to activate it.


  1. Log on to the Resource Management console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Resource Center.
  3. Click Enable.
    After you activate Resource Center, the system automatically creates a service-linked role named AliyunServiceRoleForResourceMetaCenter. Then, Resource Center assumes this role to obtain the information about your resources and build a resource center for you. For more information, see Service-linked role for Resource Center.

    In most cases, the system requires a few minutes to build the resource center and update resource information. If you have a large amount of resources, the system may require more time.
