About Traditional Cloud Accounts and Cloud Accounts with Identity Cloud Service

You use an Oracle Cloud account to access your cloud services and log into the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic Console, which is where you manage your account and your services.

When you go to sign in to your Oracle Cloud account, you can choose to sign in to two different types of cloud accounts: a traditional cloud account (also known as a cloud service account) and a cloud account with Identity Cloud Service. Traditional cloud accounts use one identity management system which is different from the identity management system associated with cloud accounts with Identity Cloud Service.
