Enable or Disable an Access Rule

Not Oracle Cloud Infrastructure This topic does not apply to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Identify the Cloud Infrastructure Used by a Service Instance.

You can dynamically enable or disable existing access rules for an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance.

Access rules control the network access to the nodes in your service instance, and to external access from the internet. When a service instance is provisioned, Java Cloud Service defines several default access rules. You can enable or disable these rules to control access to specific port numbers on specific nodes. Make sure you consider the possible security implications before you open ports to external access.

  1. Access your service console.
  2. Beside the service that you want to modify, click Manage this instance Menu icon, and then select Manage Access Rules.
  3. On the Access Rules page, beside the rule, click Actions Menu icon, and then select Enable or Disable.
    You can enable or disable USER and DEFAULT type rules. You cannot disable SYSTEM type rules.
  4. When prompted for confirmation, click Enable or Disable.

To return to either the Instances page or the Overview page for the selected service instance, click the locator links at the top of the page.
