You must use My Services dashboard in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to create an Oracle Analytics Cloud instance to use with Oracle Analytics for Applications.

On the My Services page, you must select Analytics Subscription. See Navigating to Oracle My Services and Other Oracle Cloud Services from the Console

Note:

To create an Oracle Analytics Cloud instance, use the Oracle Analytics Cloud subscription that you get with Oracle Analytics for Applications. You must use this subscription even if you have deployed any version ofOracle Analytics Cloud.

  2. Open the Navigation Menu. Under Services, click Analytics Subscription.
    You see the service instances page.
  3. On the Instances page, click Create Instance.
  4. For Instance Name, enter a name for your service instance.
    The name must start with a letter and can contain only letters and numbers.
  5. For Notification Email, enter the email address of the person, for example the Cloud Account Administrator, you want to notify when this service is ready to use and receive other status updates about this service in the future.

    This name need not be unique and can contain alphanumeric and special characters.

    Ensure that you have reset the password for the FAWService user in Oracle Fusion Application Services prior to entering the new password. See Reset Passwords
  11. Optionally, click Test Connection to check the connection to the Oracle Fusion Application Services instance and confirm whether the credentials are valid.
  12. In Autonomous Data Warehouse Administrator Credentials, provide an administrator password for the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse that is provisioned in your tenancy to store the transformed data.
  13. In Analytics Cloud Connection, provide the service instance URL of the Oracle Analytics Cloud Subscription instance that you previously created to use with Oracle Analytics for Applications.
