Manage Permission for Manual Access to Database

Use this API to manage permission for manual access to database by Oracle.

This gives you the ability to allow or disallow Oracle personnel to manually access your database in emergency situations when an environment is unresponsive and you have not yet created a service request to investigate the issue.

In an emergency situation, Oracle follows an internal process whereby a high-level development executive, after an independent verification process, permits manual access to the database without your explicit approval. You can also prohibit Oracle from manually accessing the EPM Cloud database, even if a service request to remedy a database issue is open.

This API is version v1.

Before using the REST resources, you must understand how to access the REST resources and other important concepts. See About the REST APIs. Using this REST API requires prerequisites. See Prerequisites.

disableEmergencyAccess Whether to prohibit all manual access to the database. The possible values are true and false.
