Accessing the Oracle Cloud Console (IAM)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (OCI IAM) merges the capabilities of Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS), and is the access control plane for Oracle Cloud.

OCI IAM requires Account Administrators and Identity Domain Administrators to use Multifactor Authentication (MFA) to access Oracle Cloud Console (IAM). With MFA enabled in the IAM service, when a user signs in to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, they are prompted for their user name and password, which is the first factor (something that they know). The user is then prompted to provide a second verification code from a registered MFA device, which is the second factor (something that they have). The two factors work together, requiring an extra layer of security to verify the user’s identity and complete the sign-in process.

Install Autheticator App

Before enabling secure verification using MFA, install a supported authenticator app on your mobile device. Examples of authenticator apps are Oracle Mobile Authenticator and Google Authenticator. You'll use the app to register your device and then you'll use the same app (on the same device) to generate a time-based one-time passcode (TOTP) every time you sign in.
