You use a unique URL to access each Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud environment. A Service Administrator provides these URLs to users.
Generally, in addition to an application context, the URL of a newly provisioned EPM Cloud instance identifies these components:
- Service name: This is an auto-generated string, which is assigned when you order an EPM Cloud subscription.
To distinguish between your Test and Production environments, Oracle appends
-testto create a unique service name for the Test environment.
- Identity domain name: This is the name of the identity domain that services your subscription. This name is auto generated.
- EPM Cloud family: This is one of the following:
pbcsfor legacy Planning and Budgeting Cloud , Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud, Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud, and Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud environments.
epmfor EPM Standard Cloud Service and EPM Enterprise Cloud Service instances.

This is also used in the URLs of newly provisioned legacy instances of Planning and Budgeting Cloud , Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud, Oracle Tax Reporting Cloud, and Oracle Financial Consolidation and Close Cloud.
- Data center region: This is the region where the data center that hosts the EPM Cloud instance is located. This is not a region name, but a designator for the data center region, for example,

What Happens to the Legacy URLs?
You can continue using the old legacy URLs or switch to the new URL, which will automatically redirect to your environments.
If you are an existing user, you may update your URLs with this new application context. For example, if your legacy URL is
https://example-idDomain.pbcs.dom1.oraclecloud.com/HyperionPlanning, you can update it as follows:
It is not mandatory to update your legacy URLs, which can also be used to access your environment.
