Before you begin using Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, you should be familiar with Oracle Cloud.
Before you create an Autonomous Data Warehouse instance:
On Oracle Cloud, sign up for Oracle Cloud Free Tier or sign up for a paid Cloud Account. You cannot create an Autonomous Data Warehouse 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 Data Warehouse, 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
usernameis your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure user name. The
passwordis your auth token. See Working with Auth Tokens.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic, the
usernameis your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic user name and the
passwordis your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic password.
Amazon S3, the
usernameis your AWS access key ID and the
passwordis your AWS secret access key. See AWS Identity and Access Management.
Azure Blob Storage, the
usernameis your Azure storage account name and the
passwordis an Azure storage account access key. See About Azure storage accounts.
(Optional) Create a bucket for cloud storage manual backups:
If you want to manually back up Autonomous Data Warehouse to cloud storage you must associate an instance with a cloud storage backup location. For information on defining your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage and creating the bucket for manual backups, see Configure Manual Backups on Autonomous Data Warehouse.
After you create an Autonomous Data Warehouse instance:
(Optional) Reset the administrator password:
When you create an Autonomous Data Warehouse 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 Administrator Account on Autonomous Data Warehouse.
(Optional) Add Oracle Machine Learning users. See: Create User.
(Optional) Download Oracle Analytics Desktop and add a connection to Autonomous Data Warehouse. See Work with Analytics and Visualization.
