Creating an Oracle Integration Instance

Create an Oracle Integration instance in a selected compartment.

Note

  • The steps here apply to Oracle Integration Generation 2 and Oracle Integration for SaaS Generation 2. Differences in instance creation are noted. For more information about the SaaS version, see Oracle Integration for Oracle SaaS.
  • You cannot split a single instance into two parts (for example, into test and development parts). Instead, you must create separate instances for each part.
  1. After signing in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console, note your selected region.
    Once created, instances are visible only in the region in which they were created. For information about regions, see Regions and Availability Domains.

  3. From the Compartment list, click through the hierarchy of compartments and select the one in which to create the instance. You may need to expand the + icon to find the compartment to use. Compartments can contain other compartments. It may take several minutes for the new compartment to appear after the policy has been created.

    Message Packs The message pack options available for selection are based on the version of Oracle Integration instance you are creating.
    • For Oracle Integration: Select the number of message packs. The total number of messages available per pack is based on the License Type option you selected. You can select up to 3 message packs if you bring an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware license (known as BYOL) to the cloud. You can select up to 12 message packs if you create a new Oracle Integration license in the cloud.

    Custom Endpoint: Configure this tab to use a custom endpoint URL for the instance. The custom hostname you want to map to the instance must already be registered on a DNS provider and its SSL certificate stored as a secret in an OCI Vault. See Configure a Custom Endpoint for an Instance.

    • Certificate: Provide the location of the hostname's certificate in your OCI tenancy.

    Instance creation takes some time. If you attempt to click the instance name and receive a 401: Authorization failed or a 404: Not Found error, but followed all the correct steps, instance creation has not completed. Wait a few more minutes.

  6. When instance creation completes successfully, the instance shows as Active in the State column.
