Before using the BMS service, you need to make the following preparations:
If you want to allow multiple users to manage your resources without sharing your password or private key, you can create users using IAM and grant permissions to the users. These users can use specified login links and their own accounts to access the public cloud and help you efficiently manage resources. You can also set account security policies to ensure the security of these accounts and reduce enterprise information security risks.
If you have registered on the public cloud platform but have no IAM user, you can create one on the IAM console. For example, to create a BMS administrator, perform the following steps:
A BMS administrator can log in to the management console and manage users. You are advised to select Set manually for Password Type when you create a BMS administrator for your domain. If you create a BMS administrator for another user, you are advised to select Set at first login for Password Type instead so that the user can set their own password.
After the user is created, the login link of the user is displayed above the list.
The cloud platform uses the public key cryptography to protect the login information of your BMS. You need to specify the key pair name and provide the private key when logging to the BMS using SSH.
If you have no key pair, create one on the management console.
If you want to create BMSs in multiple regions, you need to create a key pair in each region. For more information about regions, see Region and AZ.
An automatically allocated key name consists of KeyPair- and a 4-digit random number. Change it to an easy-to-remember one, for example, KeyPair-xxxx_bms.
This is the only opportunity for you to save the private key file. Keep it secure. When creating a BMS, provide the name of the desired key pair. Each time you log in to the BMS using SSH, provide the private key.
