About Users and Groups

Identity domain administrators use Oracle Identity Cloud Service to manage users and set up user groups for Oracle Analytics Cloud. Oracle Identity Cloud Service authenticates and authorizes users when they sign-in to Oracle Analytics Cloud.

After the user accounts are set up, Oracle Analytics Cloud administrators can use the Users and Roles page in Oracle Analytics Cloud to give individual users or groups permissions through application roles. See About Application Roles and Add Members to Application Roles.

Users, Groups, and Application Roles in Oracle Identity Cloud Service

Oracle Analytics Cloud is federated with Oracle Identity Cloud Service and initially offers a single user account. This default user can grant other users permissions in Oracle Analytics Cloud though several Oracle Identity Cloud Service application roles (ServiceAdministrator, ServiceUser, ServiceViewer).

Add a User or a Group

One of the first jobs you do after setting up Oracle Analytics is to add user accounts for everyone you expect to use data visualization and enterprise modeling services, and assign them to suitable groups.

Use Oracle Identity Cloud Service to add users and groups. See Manage Oracle Identity Cloud Service Users, in Administering Oracle Identity Cloud Service.
