- API Versions Affected: 20160918
The Database service is now integrated with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Work Requests API for Autonomous Databases. Work requests allow you to monitor long-running operations such as the provisioning of Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instances. A work request is an activity log that enables you to track each step in the operation's progress. Each work request has an OCID that allows you to interact with it programmatically and use it for automation. For general information on using work requests in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, see Work Requests. For information on viewing work requests for Autonomous Databases, see To view a work request for your Autonomous Database.
