Creating a Compartment

When you sign up for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle creates your tenancy with a root compartment that holds all your cloud resources. You then create additional compartments within the tenancy (root compartment) and corresponding policies to control access to the resources in each compartment. Before you create an Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service table, Oracle recommends that you set up the compartment where you want the table to belong.

You create compartments in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (IAM). See Setting Up Your Tenancy and Managing Compartments in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Documentation.
