This document describes how to identify the sub-account user type and log in to a sub-account. After successful login, the sub-account can manage resources under the root account within the scope of permissions.
Sub-account types include sub-user, collaborator, and message recipient. You can identify the type in the following two methods:
cam:ListSubAccountsAPI permission. The user types of the accounts are listed here.
If your sub-account user type is collaborator, you can use the Tencent Cloud account login page to login. Login with the associated root account and select the collaborator identity to log in to your sub-account, and you will be able to manage the resources under the root account within the scope of the permissions. For detailed directions, please see Collaborator Login.
A message recipient can only receive message notifications through the associated contact information set by the root account but cannot programmatically access or log in to the Tencent Cloud Console to manage resources under the root account.
