Creating Collaborator

Last updated: 2021-08-04 15:54:53

    Overview

    If you are an admin user and have purchased CVM, VPC, COS, and other Tencent Cloud resources, you can set the Tencent Cloud accounts of other members of your team as collaborators and allow them to access your resources.

    This document describes how to use the admin account to create a collaborator in the CAM console and bind the collaborator to a permission policy.

    Note:

    Both collaborators and sub-users are sub-accounts. For related definitions and permission descriptions, please see User Types.

    Prerequisites

    Directions

    1. Log in to the Tencent Cloud console, go to User List, and click Create User to enter the user creation page.
    2. On the user creation page, click Create a Collaborator.
    3. Enter the user information and click Next.
      Note:

      • Collaborators are allowed to log in to the Tencent Cloud console by default. Cancellation of this permission is not supported currently.
      • To ensure the security of your account, we recommend you enable login protection and operation protection.
      • The account ID is a unique ID for Tencent Cloud. The collaborator you are adding needs to go to Account Center - Account Info to view the account ID.
    4. Set permissions. You can set permissions for the created collaborator in any of the following three ways. After the collaborator is associated with a policy, they can get the permissions described in the policy.
      • Use group permissions: using groups is the best way to manage user permissions by job function. You can use group-associated permissions to grant permissions. Click Use group permissions and select the desired user group to add the collaborator to an existing or new user group. The collaborator will then be associated with the policies of the group.
      • Copy existing user policies: click Copy existing user policies and select the user whose permissions you want to use, and the new collaborator will be associated with the policies of the existing user.
      • Select policies from the policy list: click Select policies from the policy list and select the policies you want to associate with the collaborator.
    5. Click Done.
