Restart Autonomous Database

Describes the steps to restart an Autonomous Database instance.

Perform the following prerequisite steps as necessary:

  • Open the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console by clicking the navigation icon next to Oracle Cloud.

  • From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure left navigation menu click Oracle Database and then, depending on your workload click one of: Autonomous Data Warehouse, Autonomous JSON Database, or Autonomous Transaction Processing.
  • On the Autonomous Databases page select an Autonomous Database from the links under the Display name column.

  1. On the Details page, from the More actions drop-down list, select Restart.
  2. In the confirmation dialog, select Restart to confirm.

    When concurrent operations such as scaling are active, the confirmation also confirms either pausing or canceling the concurrent operation. See Concurrent Operations on Autonomous Database for more information.

The Autonomous Database instance state changes to "Restarting". After the restart is successful, Autonomous Database instance state is "Available".


When an Autonomous Database instance is restarted, Autonomous Database CPU billing is initiated, billed by the second with a minimum usage period of one minute.
