Access Oracle SOA Cloud Service

You access Oracle SOA Cloud Service through a service web console or the REST API.

For information about using the REST API to access Oracle SOA Cloud Service, see REST API for Oracle SOA Cloud Service.

To access Oracle SOA Cloud Service through a web console, you can do one of the following:

  • Sign in to your Oracle Cloud Service account.

  • Using the service URL given to you either in an email or by your administrator.

Either way you must provide a user name (user ID), password, and identity domain to sign in. Check your email or contact your administrator for your sign-in credentials. If you don’t have access to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console application, contact your administrator for the service console URL.

To access the Oracle SOA Cloud Service console:

  1. Sign in to your Cloud Account and navigate to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
    See Signing in to Your Cloud Account in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.
  2. From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console, you can access SOA Cloud Service by using one of these methods:
    • From the Navigation Menu icon navigation menu at the top left of the page (next to the Oracle logo), choose SOA under the Dashboard heading.
    • Click the Menu icon menu on the SOA tile, and select Open Service Console. If the SOA tile is not displayed, select SOA from the Customize Dashboard drop-down menu.

      When you access Oracle SOA Cloud Service the first time for an account, you will see the Welcome page.
