Creating an Environment

Create a source environment within Oracle Cloud Migrations as the first step for discovery and migration.

    1. Open the navigation menu and click Migration & Disaster Recovery. Under Cloud Migrations, click Remote Connections. On the Source environments page, click Create source environment.
    2. In the Create source environment panel, provide the following details:
      • Enter a name.
      • Select the compartment where you want to create the environment.
      • (Optional) Add tags to organize your resource. To apply a defined tag, you must have permissions to use the tag namespace. For more information about tagging, see Resource Tags. If you are not sure whether to apply tags, skip this option (you can apply tags later) or ask your administrator.
