2 Managing Oracle Database Cloud Service

This section describes how to manage Oracle Database Cloud Services (Database Cloud Services). To learn more about functionality common to all Oracle Cloud services, see "Operating and Monitoring Cloud Services" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Topics:

About Requesting an Oracle Database Cloud Service Trial

In order to request an Oracle Database Cloud Service trial, you must first obtain an Oracle account and then request a trial service. To learn more, see "Starting Trial Services" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

About Oracle Cloud Users

Administrators use a web-based, self-service administration tool called Oracle Identity Console to manage roles and service users for all Oracle Cloud services. After services have been activated and verified for use, service users must be added to the Oracle Cloud identity management system before they can begin using the Oracle Cloud services. Administrators manage users in Oracle Cloud using the Identity Console. The Identity Console is a web-based, self-service administration tool used in the provisioning and management of Oracle Cloud users. To learn more, see "Managing Service Users" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

About Database Cloud Service Users

In addition to the roles and privileges described in "Managing Service Users" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud, there are the following Database Cloud Service roles used to access, develop and administer Application Express applications:

  • End Users. End users of an Oracle Application Express application using Oracle Cloud Identity Management or Application Express authentication. Users that have been granted permission to access an Oracle Application Express application.

  • Developers. Developers of Oracle Application Express applications. Developers have access to the Application Builder and the SQL Workshop.

  • Workspace Administrators. Administrators given access to all Oracle Application Express application components. Additionally, they can manage application user accounts, groups and development services that use Oracle Application Express authorization.

About the My Services Page

Use the information on the Oracle Cloud My Services page to manage and monitor your Database Cloud Service. The My Services page consists of four major categories: Services, Notifications, and Status History. This section helps you find documentation for the features and information available on the My Services page for the Database Cloud Service.

To learn more, see "Using My Services" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Locking and Unlocking a Database Cloud Service

Service administrators can prevent developers and users from accessing an Oracle Database Cloud Service and the applications deployed to it on the Administration page. Once a service is locked, service administrators can still manage users that belong to the Oracle Cloud identity management system through the Identity console.
