SecurityPreference Struct

The security preferences.

AccessKeyPreference Struct

The AccessKey pair preference.

AllowUserToManageAccessKeys Boolean false

  • If no subnet mask is specified, RAM users can log on to the Alibaba Cloud Management Console by using all IP addresses.

If more than one subnet mask is specified, the masks are separated with semicolons (;), for example, 192.168.0.0/16;10.0.0.0/8.
