Who Uses the Options on the Users Page and Why?

As an identity domain administrator, you use options on the My Services Users page to manage users and their roles for certain Oracle Cloud applications and services.

The system stores the user accounts in an identity management repository that is dedicated to your enterprise. An identity domain administrator must manage these user accounts.

Your reason for using the options on the My Services Users page depends on your Oracle Cloud service. See the following table for details.

Oracle Cloud Service How the Service Uses Options on the My Services Users Page

For these Oracle Cloud services, you use the Users page in My Services to:

  • Manage the users who can access the service

What Can You Access with a Services User Account?

A user account defined in My Services lets a user:

  • Sign in to the My Services application in Oracle Cloud. The user role defines the features that the user can access in My Services.

  • Sign in to an Oracle Cloud service provided the service uses the My Services application to verify its users.

    All the available Platform as a Service (PaaS) services, such as Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Java Cloud Service, use My Services to verify users. In addition, Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service uses My Services to verify users.
