    Known Issues

    If you have multiple users managing different Tencent Cloud services such as CVM, VPC, and TencentDB, and they all share your Tencent Cloud account access key, you may face the following problems:
    Your key will be easily compromised because it is shared by several users.
    You cannot restrict the access from other users and your service will be vulnerable to the security risks caused by their maloperations.


    You can avoid the problems above by allowing different users to manage different services through sub-accounts. By default, a sub-account does not have permissions to use Tencent Cloud services or resources. Therefore, you need to create a policy to grant different permissions to the sub-accounts.
    Cloud Access Management (CAM) is a Tencent Cloud web service that helps you securely manage and control access to your Tencent Cloud resources. CAM allows you to create, manage or terminate users (groups), and control who have access to which Tencent Cloud resources based on identity and policy management.
    When using CAM, you can associate a policy with a user or user group to allow or forbid them to use specified resources to complete specified tasks. For more information on CAM policies, see Element Reference. For detailed directions, see Concepts.
    You can skip this section if you do not need to manage permissions to TencentDB resources for sub-accounts. This will not affect your understanding and use of the other sections of the document.

    Getting started

    A CAM policy must authorize or deny the use of one or more CTSDB operations. At the same time, it must specify the resources that can be used for the operations (which can be all resources or partial resources for certain operations). A policy can also include the conditions set for the manipulated resources.
    CAM policies are preferred over projects for managing resources and authorizing operations of CTSDB, even though the user experience for current users with project-based permissions remains unaffected.
