About Database Cloud Service Roles and Users

In addition to the roles and privileges described in Oracle Cloud User Roles and Privileges in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud, the DBaaS Database Administrator role is created for Oracle Database Cloud Service.

When the Database Cloud Service account is first set up, the service administrator is given this role. User accounts with this role must be added before anyone else can access and use Database Cloud Service.

The identity domain administrator can create more Database Cloud Service administrators by creating user accounts and assigning them the DBaaS Database Administrator role. See Managing User Accounts in Managing and Monitoring Oracle Cloud.

The following table summarizes the privileges given to the DBaaS Database Administrator role.
