Provision Autonomous Transaction Processing

Follow these steps to provision a new Autonomous Transaction Processing instance using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

  • Sign in to your Oracle Cloud Account at cloud.oracle.com.

  • Open the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console by clicking the navigation icon next to Oracle Cloud.

  • From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure left navigation list click Autonomous Transaction Processing.

  1. Choose your region. See Switching Regions for information on switching regions and working in multiple regions.
  2. Click Create Autonomous Database.
  3. Provide basic information for the Autonomous Database.
    • Choose a compartment. See Compartments for information on using and managing compartments.

    • Display name Specify a user-friendly description or other information that helps you easily identify the resource. The display name does not have to be unique.

    • Database name Specify the database name; it must consist of letters and numbers only. The maximum length is 14 characters.

      Note:

      The same database name cannot be used for multiple Oracle Autonomous Database databases in the same tenancy in the same region.
  4. Choose a workload type. Select the workload type for your database from the choices:
    • Data Warehouse

    • Transaction Processing

    To create an Autonomous Transaction Processing instance select Transaction Processing.

  5. Choose a deployment type.
    • Serverless

      Run Autonomous Database without provisioning infrastructure.

    • Dedicated Infrastructure

      Run Autonomous Database on dedicated Exadata infrastructure.

    Select Serverless for a Serverless deployment. See Provision Autonomous Transaction Processing for steps for provisioning on Dedicated Infrastructure.

  6. Configure the database.
    • CPU core count Specify the number of CPU cores for your Autonomous Transaction Processing database.

    • Storage (TB) Specify the storage you wish to make available to your Autonomous Transaction Processing database, in terabytes.

    • Auto Scaling Select to allow the system to automatically use up to three times more CPU and IO resources to meet workload demand. See Use Auto Scaling for more information.

  7. When a preview version is available, if you want to use the preview version, select Enable Preview Mode.

    If you want to use the preview version, also accept the preview termination period notice. See Preview Versions for Autonomous Database for more information.

    Note:

    A preview version is only available when there is an upcoming major version to release. At times no preview version will be available.
  8. Create administrator credentials. Set the password for the Autonomous Transaction Processing Admin user. The password must meet the strong password complexity criteria based on Oracle Cloud security standards. For more information on the password complexity rules see Create Users with Autonomous Transaction Processing.
    • Username This is a read only field.

    • Password Set the password for the Autonomous Transaction Processing Admin user. The password must meet the strong password complexity criteria based on Oracle Cloud security standards. For more information on the password complexity rules see Create Users with Autonomous Transaction Processing.

    • Confirm password Enter the same password again to confirm your new password.

  9. Choose a license type
    • Bring Your Own License

      My organization already owns Oracle database software licenses. Bring my existing database software licenses to the database cloud service (details).

    • License Included

      Subscribe to new database software licenses and the database cloud service.

    (Optional) Click Show Advanced Options to enter additional options.

    If you want to use Tags, enter the TAG KEY and VALUE. Tagging is a metadata system that allows you to organize and track resources within your tenancy. Tags are composed of keys and values which can be attached to resources.

  10. Click Create Autonomous Database.

On the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console the State shows Provisioning... until the new Autonomous Transaction Processing database is available.
