Before You Begin with Autonomous Transaction Processing

Before you begin using Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, you should be familiar with Oracle Cloud.

See Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

Before you create an Autonomous Transaction Processing instance:

  • On Oracle Cloud, purchase a subscription. You cannot create an Autonomous Transaction Processing deployment until you do so.

  • (Optional) if you want to leverage an object store for data loading you need your object store credentials to use with Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, including a username and a password. For details on the required credentials, depending on the object store you want to use, see the following:
    • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage, the username is your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure user name. The password is your auth token. See Working with Auth Tokens.

    • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic, the username is your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic user name and the password is your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic password.

After you create an Autonomous Transaction Processing instance:

  • (Optional) Reset the administrator password:

    When you create an Autonomous Transaction Processing instance you are required to set the administrator password. If you want to change the administrator password or if you need to unlock the administrator account, see Manage the ADMIN Database User.
