Signing In to Identity Domains

This topic provides assistance if you need help with signing in to an identity domain in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

Before you begin

Before you begin troubleshooting your sign-in issues, ensure that you:

  • Are using a supported browser. Supported browsers are listed below.
  • Have your sign-in information. Sign-in information includes:
    • Username and password.
    • Tenancy and identity domain you need to sign in to.
    • Your administrator's contact information.

    Username, tenancy, identity domain, and administrator contact information can be found in your welcome mail.

Using Keep me signed in

If the administrator has enabled Keep me signed in and the current sign-on policy allows it, then you see the option in the sign-in window. Administrators configure a sign-on policy to specify the allowed duration for a signed-in session and how long a signed-in session can be inactive before having to sign in again. If you check Keep me signed in, then you're able to access an identity domain without having to sign in again.

The sign-on policy overrides the Keep-me signed in session. This means that even though a user is signed in using Keep-me signed in, after the session expires, if the policy requires reauthentication or multifactor authentication (MFA), then the user is challenged to reauthenticate or challenged to provide MFA.

Only use Keep me signed in private or personal computers or devices.

Need Help Signing In to an Identity Domain?

The following are common sign-in issues and possible resolutions. If you don't find your issues, contact your administrator. Your administrator will contact Oracle support, if needed.
Issue Resolution
Can't use your default sign in method.

If you have set up more than one 2-step verification method or at least one 2-step verification method and a bypass code, then you can switch to an alternative login method when you can't use your default. See Signing In to an Identity Domain Using an Alternative Login Method.

Invalid username or password.

Check that you are signing in with the correct credentials and to the correct tenancy and domain. The tenancy and domain can be found in the welcome mail you received.

If your password has expired or you have forgotten it, you will need to reset your password. See Resetting Your Password If You Forgot It.

Inactive or deactivated account.

If you haven't activated your account, you will have to do so. Use the activation link in the Welcome mail.

If your account is deactivated, you will need to contact your administrator to have it reactivated. Administrator contact information can be found in your welcome mail.
