Describes the steps to terminate an Autonomous Database instance.
Note:Terminating Autonomous Database permanently deletes the instance and removes all automatic backups. You cannot recover a terminated database.
Perform the following prerequisite steps as necessary:
Open the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console by clicking the next to Oracle Cloud.
- From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure left navigation menu click Oracle Database and then, depending on your workload click one of: Autonomous Data Warehouse, Autonomous JSON Database, or Autonomous Transaction Processing.
On the Autonomous Databases page select an Autonomous Database from the links under the Display Name column.
- On the Details page, from the More Actions drop-down list, select Terminate.
- On the Terminate Autonomous Database page enter the
database name to confirm that you want to terminate the database.
When concurrent operations such as scaling or creating a manual backup are active, the confirmation also confirms either pausing or canceling the concurrent operation. See Concurrent Operations on Autonomous Database for more information.
- Click Terminate Autonomous Database.
Note:There are limitations for terminating a database when Autonomous Data Guard is enabled with a cross-region standby database. See Terminate a Cross-Region (Remote) Standby Database for more information.
