3 Next Steps

In Oracle Identity Cloud Service, provision team members by creating user accounts and groups with associated roles.

Navigate to Your Oracle Identity Cloud Service Application

Oracle Identity Cloud Service is provided as part of your Digital Assistant service stack, and you use it to add and edit users, groups, and roles. For each Digital Assistant instance, you have an IDCS application.

To navigate to the IDCS application for an instance:

  1. From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console, select the Instances tab.

  2. On the Instances tab, click the hyperlink for the Digital Assistant instance.
  3. In the More Information bubble that appears, click the IDCS Application link.

  4. Note the name of the IDCS application. This will simplify navigating back to the IDCS application when you need to assign roles.

Add Users

Add Digital Assistant team members by creating user accounts.

  1. From Oracle Identity Cloud Service, click menu button and select Users.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter the first name and last name of the user in the corresponding fields. Proceed to the next step to have the user log in with a user name or skip to Step 5 to have the user log in with an email address.

  4. If the user is going to log in with a user name, enter the user name in the User Name field and enter the user’s email address in the Email field.

    Be sure to clear the Use the email address as the user name option, which makes the user name the same as the user’s email address.

  5. If the user is going to log in using an email address, make sure the Use the email address as the user name option is checked and enter the email address for the user account in the User Name/Email field.

    Don’t use this option if the user name is currently in use, or had been in use, in the current domain. For existing (or previously existing) user names, a unique value will automatically be added to the email address to create a unique value for the user name.

  6. Click Next if you want to assign the user to a group or click Finish.

    To assign a group, just select the groups that you want to assign to this user account and click Finish.

    The Details page is displayed for the user. An invitation email is sent to the user containing log in credentials to Digital Assistant.
