Prerequisites

You must have the following prerequisites to access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager and work with Oracle E-Business Suite environments.

Access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager

To access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager, perform the following tasks:

Log In to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager

Navigate to your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance at the URL established during its deployment. Log in with your Oracle Identity Cloud Service credentials. See Deploy Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure .

Specify Your User Details (Conditionally Required)

The following steps are required if you are logging in to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager for the first time.

Note: The Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator who performed the initial setup does not need to perform these steps.

Before you use Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager for the first time, you must specify user details in the Oracle Cloud Account Details page, including your user OCID.

  1. When you log into Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager for the first time, the Oracle Cloud Account Details page appears by default. You can review the tenancy details for your Oracle Cloud account.

  2. In the Account Information region, enter your user OCID.

  3. Click Register User, and then click Register in the confirmation dialog box.

  4. Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager generates a new public/private API signing key pair for the user you have registered. When prompted, download the public .pem key file to an accessible location.

    If you need to download the public key again later, click the Get Public Key link, and then click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

    Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager also derives the fingerprint for your user account from your key and displays it in the Account Information region.

  5. Next, upload your public key to your user settings in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console. See "To Upload an API Signing Key" in Using the Console

Review Environments

  1. The Environments page lists the Oracle E-Business Suite environments provisioned in your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance, as well as standby environments and incomplete installations from unsuccessful provisioning attempts.

    If you are logged in as an Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator, then the Environments page shows all environments provisioned in your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance. If you are logged in as a user without administrator privileges, then the page shows only environments that reside within the compartment you chose in the EBS Compartment field in the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager header.

    Note: If you used Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to deploy an environment with Oracle Database Release 11.2.0.4 or Release 12.1.0.2, and you upgrade that environment to Oracle Database 19c, then you must unregister and rediscover the upgraded environment to update its metadata within Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager. Similarly, if you used Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to deploy an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 environment, and you upgrade that environment to Release 12.2, then you must unregister and rediscover the upgraded environment. See Discover an Oracle E-Business Suite Instance.

    After performing rediscovery, you can continue managing the environment through Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager.

  2. You can optionally enter a value in the search field to display only environments whose properties contain that value. You can search by the following properties shown in this page:

    • Environment name

    • Network profile that defines the network resources used by the environment

    • Oracle E-Business Suite compartment where the environment resides

    • Database service type

    • Database name

    • Last job performed for this environment in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager

    • Creation date and time
