View and Manage Customer Contacts for Operational Issues and Announcements

You can view and manage the Autonomous Database customer contacts.

When customer contacts are set, Oracle sends notifications to the specified email addresses for Autonomous Database service-related issues. Contacts in the customer contacts list receive unplanned maintenance notices and other notices, including but not limited to notices for database upgrades and upcoming wallet expiration. When customer contacts are not set the notifications go to the tenancy admin email address associated with the account. Oracle recommends that you set the customer contacts so that the appropriate people receive service-related notifications.

Perform the following prerequisite steps as necessary:

  • Open the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console by clicking the navigation icon 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.

To view or manage the customer contact email addresses, do the following:

  1. On the Autonomous Database Details page, under Maintenance, in the Customer Contacts field, click the Manage link.

    This shows the Manage Contacts page. On the Manage Contacts page you can view the email contact list.

  2. To add a contact, click Add Contacts.
  3. Enter the contact email address.
  4. To add additional contacts, click Add Contacts again.
  5. Click Add Contacts at the bottom of the page to add the new contacts.

The lifecycle state changes to Updating while the customer contact list is updated.
