Simple Log Service:CreateProject

Last Updated:Feb 23, 2024

Creates a project.

Usage notes

  • An AccessKey pair is created and obtained. For more information, see AccessKey pair.

    The AccessKey pair of an Alibaba Cloud account has permissions on all API operations. Using these credentials to perform operations in Simple Log Service is a high-risk operation. We recommend that you use a RAM user to call API operations or perform routine O&M. To create a RAM user, log on to the RAM console. Make sure that the RAM user has the management permissions on Simple Log Service resources. For more information, see Create a RAM user and authorize the RAM user to access Simple Log Service.

  • The name of a project must be unique in a region. You cannot change the name of a project after you create the project.
  • For information about the maximum number of projects that can be created within an Alibaba Cloud account, see Basic resources.
