API Authority by Account

On Console, there are two types of accounts: main account, which is customer’s admin account and sub account, which is created by main account.

Main account has API calling authority by default, but need to apply for each API authority on API Explorer or ask customer service for batch application. To better manage data and API authority, for sub accounts, API calling authority is disabled by default and only be controlled by main account via IAM.

Following content shows how to use API Explorer with different account types.

With main account:

  1. Go to API Explorer via: Console main page–>Develop Support–>API Explorer
