2 Managing Oracle Java Cloud Service

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

Topics:

About Requesting a Trial or Paid Java Cloud Service

In order to participate in an Oracle Cloud free trial or paid service, you must first obtain an Oracle.com account and then request a trial or paid service. To learn more, see "Starting Trial or Paid Services" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

About Oracle Cloud Users

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

About Java Cloud Service Users

As described in "Managing Service Users" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud, when an Oracle Cloud service is provisioned, several profiles are automatically created. Administrative individuals are granted the pre-seeded roles that correspond to their administrator role and the type of service they are targeted to manage. For example, the service administrator for a Java Cloud Service instance is given the Java Administrator pre-seeded role. The Java Administrator has administrative privileges for all Java Cloud Service instances within the scope of the identity domain.

About the My Services Page

Use the information on the My Services page to manage and monitor your services. The My Services page consists of the following major categories:

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

Accessing the My Services Page

To access the My Services page:

  1. Go to the Oracle Cloud home page (http://cloud.oracle.com).

  2. Click Sign In.

    The Sign In page appears.

  3. On the Sign In page:

    • Data Center - Select a data center.

    • Click Sign in to My Services

  4. If prompted, enter your service owner's credentials. (Note that you need Service Owner credentials to access the My Services page.)

    The My Services page appears.

Viewing Service Details

You can view details about a service on the Services page. The Services page is divided into four tabs: Overview, Utilization, Administration, and Resources. Note the information that appears on each tab changes based on the type of subscribed service.

Editing a Service Description

When you have multiple services, the service description helps differentiate your services. The description is updated on the Administration page. To learn more, see "Editing Service Descriptions" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Viewing Associated Services

The Details section of the Overview tab lists associations between Oracle Cloud instances that are part of the same identity domain. A standard example is a Java Cloud Service associated with a Database Cloud Service instance. This type of association enables applications deployed to Java Cloud Service to use data within the Database Cloud Service instance.

To learn more, see "Adding Service Associations" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Locking and Unlocking a Java Cloud Service

Service administrators can prevent service users from accessing applications deployed to a Java Cloud Service instance by locking the service. Locking a service instance enables Service administrators to perform necessary maintenance tasks (for example, re-deploying applications).

Once a service is locked, service administrators can still manage the service through the Oracle Java Cloud Service Control, Oracle Java Cloud Service command line interface (CLI), or the Identity Console.

To learn more, see "Locking and Unlocking a Service" in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Managing a Java Cloud Service Using the Command Line Interface

By installing the Oracle Java Cloud Service SDK (software development kit), you have access to a command line interface (CLI). To learn more about downloading the Oracle Java Cloud Service SDK, see "About Installing the Java Cloud Service SDK".

The commands exposed through the CLI enable you to perform general application management tasks as opposed to service instance management tasks. Example application management commands include install, remove, update, start, and stop.

To learn more about the commands available in the CLI, download the Java Cloud Service SDK and see the documentation available in the /doc directory.
