Oracle client credentials (wallet files) are downloaded from the Autonomous Data Warehouse administrative service console by a service administrator. If you are not an Autonomous Data Warehouse administrator, your administrator should provide you with the client credentials.
To download client credentials, do the following:
- Navigate to the Autonomous Data Warehouse details page.
- Click DB Connection.
- On the Database Connection page click Download.
- In the Download Wallet dialog, enter a wallet password and confirm the password.The password must be at least 8 characters long and must include at least 1 letter and either 1 numeric character or 1 special character.
This password protects the downloaded Client Credentials wallet. This wallet is not the same as the Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) wallet for the database; therefore, use a different password to protect the Client Credentials wallet.
- Click Download to save the client security credentials zip file.
You must protect this file to prevent unauthorized database access.
Wallet files, along with the Database user ID and password provide access to data in your Autonomous Data Warehouse. Store wallet files in a secure location. Share wallet files only with authorized users. If wallet files are transmitted in a way that might be accessed by unauthorized users (for example, over public email), transmit the wallet password separately and securely.
Autonomous Data Warehouse uses strong password complexity rules for all users based on Oracle Cloud security standards. For more information on the password complexity rules see Creating Users with Autonomous Data Warehouse.
