Using the Database Cloud Service REST APIs

You can programmatically provision and manage Oracle Database Cloud Service instances and associated database deployments by using REST (REpresentational State Transfer) application programming interfaces (APIs).

Each REST API call maps to a HTTP request: getting an object (GET), adding an object (POST), updating an object (PUT), and deleting an object (DELETE). The HTTP response code indicates whether the request was successful. Each object for which you can perform the GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE requests is identified uniquely by its URI.

To access Database Cloud Service by using the REST API you must use the REST endpoint URL that is associated with your service instance. For details, see REST API for Oracle Database Cloud Service.
