Child accounts are an easy way to manage and control multiple accounts in RightScale through a single account. One benefit of having a child account is the ability to have a user enter in a set of cloud credentials that differ from the parent account. As an example, let's say you want to have a user add their own AWS account number to RightScale but still manage your own AWS credentials. You can provision a child account and have a user add in their own credentials while still being able to manage and control users to that account.
Note: if you would like to use RightScale API 1.5 to provision child accounts, you can do so. For more information, see Create a Enterprise Child Account in the API Users Guide.
