As a Cloud Account Administrator, you must first perform the prerequisite tasks to set up Oracle Management Cloud to work with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Before you perform the prerequisite tasks, you must ensure that the Autonomous Databases are created and available in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and in the same region as your Oracle Management Cloud instance. Cross-region monitoring of Autonomous Databases is currently not supported by Oracle Management Cloud. For information on how to create an Autonomous Database and the type of access required to create one, see Creating an Autonomous Database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure documentation.
The following table provides a workflow of the prerequisite tasks.
|Sign in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console||After you sign up for Oracle Cloud, you receive a welcome email. Use the credentials available in the welcome email and sign in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.||See Sign In to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console in Getting Started with Oracle Management Cloud.|
|Create an Oracle Management Cloud instance||Create an Oracle Management Cloud instance on the Instance Management page.
You must ensure that your Oracle Management Cloud instance and your Autonomous Databases are available in the same region.
|See Create an Oracle Management Cloud Instance in Getting Started with Oracle Management Cloud.|
|Add users and assign roles||Add users and assign Oracle Management Cloud user roles in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
You must ensure that you assign the OMC Administrator role to one or more users as only a user assigned this role can perform the tasks to configure Oracle Database Management and discover Autonomous Databases. Users assigned the OMC User role can work with Autonomous Databases in Oracle Management Cloud if they're also assigned the necessary privileges on the Access Policies page in Oracle Management Cloud.
|See Add Users and Assign Roles in Getting Started with Oracle Management Cloud.|
|Create an Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) user group||Create an IDCS user group in the Oracle Cloud
Infrastructure Console, for example, OMC_ADB_Admin, and
add the users to this group.
You must ensure that you add one or more users with the OMC Administrator role to this group.
|See Managing Oracle Identity Cloud Service Groups in the Console in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure documentation.|
|Create an IAM group and assign a policy||Create an IAM group in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Console and assign a policy to discover Autonomous Databases.
The name of the IAM group could be the same as the
name of the IDCS user group, OMC_ADB_Admin, and an example of
a recommended policy is:
|Map the IDCS user group to the IAM group||Map the IDCS user group to the IAM group to provide
access to the Autonomous Databases from Oracle Management Cloud.
Note that the mapping of an IDCS user group with an IAM group is required if the IDCS user group has users with the OMC Administrator role. This is required to allow the OMC Administrator to discover the Autonomous Databases in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console from Oracle Management Cloud. If an IDCS user group only has users with the OMC User role, then the user group doesn't have to be mapped with an IAM group.
|See To map an Oracle Identity Cloud Service group to an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure group in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure documentation.|
