This topic describes how to create a resource group. You can use resource groups to manage your resources by department or project.
An Alibaba Cloud account or a RAM identity that has the permissions to create resource groups is prepared.
After you create a resource group by using a RAM identity, the RAM identity is automatically granted the AdministratorAccess permission on the resource group. This indicates that the RAM identity acts as the administrator of the resource group and can be used to create and manage resources in the resource group.
Log on to the Resource Management console.
In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
On the Resource Group page, click Create Resource Group.
On the Create Resource Group page, configure Resource Group Identifier and Resource Group Name.
After the preceding operations are complete, the resource group is in the Creating state. Wait for about 3 seconds and click in the upper-right corner of the resource group list. If the state of the resource group changes to Available, the resource group is successfully created.
What to do next
After a resource group is created, you can create resources in the resource group or transfer existing resources to the resource group. For more information, see Purchase resources for a resource group and Transfer resources across resource groups.
After you create resources in resource groups or transfer resources to resource groups, you can grant RAM identities within your Alibaba Cloud account the permissions on different resource groups. For more information, see Add RAM authorization.
