Create Groups and Users to Use API Gateway, if these don't exist already

Before users can start using the API Gateway service to create API gateways and deploy APIs on them, as a tenancy administrator you have to create Oracle Cloud Infrastructure user accounts, along with a group to which the user accounts belong. Later on, you'll define policies to give the group (and the user accounts that belong to it) access to API Gateway-related resources. If a suitable group and user accounts already exist, there's no need to create new ones.

To create groups and users to use the API Gateway service:

  1. Log in to the Console as a tenancy administrator.
  2. If a suitable group for API Gateway users doesn't exist already, create such a group as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu and click Identity & Security. Under Identity, click Groups. A list of the groups in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Click Create Group and create a new group (see To create a group). Give the group a meaningful name (for example, api-gateway-developers) and description. Avoid entering confidential information.
  3. If suitable user accounts for API Gateway users don't exist already, create users as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu and click Identity & Security. Under Identity, click Users. A list of the users in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Click Create User and create one or more new users (see To create a user).
  4. If they haven't been added already, add users to the group to use the API Gateway service as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu and click Identity & Security. Under Identity, click Users. A list of the users in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Select one or more users and add them to the group authorized to use the API Gateway service (see To add a user to a group).
