Create a Traditional Cloud Account User

Only identity domain administrators can create user accounts, and they can create user accounts only in the identity domains that they’re assigned to manage.

To create a user account:
  1. Sign in to Applications Console or Infrastructure Classic Console.
    Sign in to the Applications Console if you want to work with Oracle Cloud Applications. Sign in to Infrastructure Classic Console if you want to access Oracle Cloud infrastructure and platform services. If you see Infrastructure Classic at the top of the page when you sign in to Oracle Cloud, then you are using Infrastructure Classic Console and your subscription does not support access to the Infrastructure Console.

    Ensure that you specify the identity domain where you want to create the user.

  2. Open the navigation menu. Under Account Management, click Users.
    The User Management page appears.
  3. Click the Users tab, and then click Add.
  4. In the Add User dialog box, enter:
    • The user's first name and last name.

    • A valid business email address. The email address can’t be longer than 71 characters.

    • You can use an email address as the user’s user name. A user name is unique to each user. Users must enter their user names when they sign in to Oracle Cloud.

      If you select the Use email as user name check box, then the system automatically uses the user’s email address as the user name unless that user name is in use or was previously used in the current domain.

      If you don't select the Use email as user name check box, then you must enter a unique user name for the user. The User Name field accepts spaces between characters, but it doesn’t allow special characters such as these ! # $ % ' * + / = ? ^ ` { | } ~ & .

    • The email address of the user’s manager. If you enter the same email address for both the user and the manager, then you’ll get an error message.

After the user account is created, Oracle Cloud sends an email notifying the user that an account was created.
