You can programmatically provision and manage Oracle Database Exadata Cloud at Customer database deployments by using REST (REpresentational State Transfer) application programming interfaces (APIs).
Each REST API call maps to a HTTP request: getting an object (
GET), adding an object (
POST), updating an object (
PUT), and deleting an object (
DELETE). The HTTP response code indicates whether the request was successful. Each object for which you can perform the
DELETE requests is identified uniquely by its URI.
To access Exadata Cloud at Customer by using the REST API you must use the REST endpoint URL that is associated with your service instance. For details, see REST API for Oracle Database Exadata Cloud at Customer.
