Add Users, Groups, and Roles for an Existing Instance

You can add users, assign roles to users, add groups, and add users and roles to groups for an existing instance in Oracle Integration.

Add a User

Add the users who need to use an Oracle Integration instance. You can add these users before the instance is created.

You can create and manage user accounts only if you are a cloud account administrator, an identity domain administrator, or have the user administrator role through delegated administration.

  1. Sign in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
  2. In the upper left corner, click hamburger menu, and select Users.
  3. Select your instance.
    Users menu with your instances shown at the far right.

  4. Click the Users tab on the User Management page.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Enter your first name, last name, email address, and user name. You can also select to use the email address as the user name.
  7. Click Save.
    You can now assign roles to the user or add the user to a group.
    You also receive an email with a link for activating your account.
  8. Follow the instructions in the email to activate your account.

Assign Roles to a User

You can assign roles to users to specify the tasks they can perform in Oracle Integration. You can assign multiple roles to a user.

To assign roles to users, you must be a cloud account administrator, an identity domain administrator, or have the user administrator role through delegated administration. See Oracle Integration Roles and Privileges for a description of the various predefined roles available in Oracle Integration. You essentially assign a user to an Oracle Integration instance or provide a user access to an Oracle Integration instance by performing these steps.
  1. In the upper left corner, click hamburger menu, and select Users.
  2. Select your instance.
    User menu

  3. Click the Users tab on the User Management page.
  4. Click the user to which to add the role.
  5. Click the Roles tab.
  6. Add the necessary roles, and click Save.

Add a Group

Instead of assigning roles to each user individually, you can create groups and add users to groups to make it easier to assign roles. Each time you add a user to a group, the user automatically gets the roles defined for the group. You can add the group before an Oracle Integration instance is created.

You can create and manage groups only if you are a cloud account administrator, an identity domain administrator, or have the user administrator role through delegated administration. See Add Users to a Group.
  1. In the upper left corner, click hamburger menu, and select Users.
  2. Select your instance.
    User menu

  3. Click the Groups tab on the User Management page.
  4. On the Groups page, click Add.
  5. On the Add Group page, provide a name and description for your group, and click Finish.
    The group is visible in the Groups page. You can now add users to the group.

Add Users to a Group

Add users to a group so that they automatically get the permissions defined for the group.

To add users to a group from the Groups page:
  1. In the upper left corner, click hamburger menu, and select Users.
  2. Select your instance.
    User menu

  3. Click the Groups tab on the User Management page.
  4. On the Groups page, click the group to which to assign users.
  5. On the Group Details page, select the Users tab.
  6. Click Add to Group.
  7. In the Add to Group dialog, select the users you want to add to the group, then click Add.
    The selected users are added to the group. You can now assign roles to all the users in the group, if required.

Assign Roles to a Group

After you create groups and add users to groups, you can assign roles and provide access to services and instances to all the members of the group at once.

Note that this action assigns the selected roles to all the users in the group in a batch. You can’t assign roles individually if you select the group role assignment.

See Oracle Integration Roles and Privileges for a description of the various predefined roles available in Oracle Integration.
  1. In the upper left corner, click hamburger menu, and select Users.
  2. Select your instance.
    User menu

  3. Click the Groups tab on the User Management page.
  4. On the Groups page, click the group to which to assign roles.
  5. Click the Roles tab.
  6. Optionally, use the Filter by Service box to search for specific services, if required. By default, the Roles page displays all services in your cloud account. If you want to assign roles for a specific service and its instances, delete All Services from the Filter by Service box, then select your service from the list or enter the service name.
  7. From the Show drop-down list, select one of the following:
    • Only Services: Lists all services. Select this if you want to assign roles to group members to be able to provision and administer cloud services in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
    • Only Instances: Lists all instances. Select this if you want to give access to group member for specific instances.
    • Both Services and Instances: Lists all services and instances. If you selected a specific service in the Filter by Service box, it lists that service and all its instances.
  8. In the search result, go to the service or instance for which you want to assign roles to group members.
  9. For your service or instance, click the text box and select the required role from the drop-down list.
    For example, to assign the ServiceUser role for an instance, select Only Instances from the Show drop-down list. Then in the search result, go to your instance, click the text box below the instance name and select the ServiceUser (Service instance user role) role.
