Creating an Autonomous Database

This topic describes how to provision a new Autonomous Database using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console or the API. Autonomous Transaction Processing databases can be provisioned using either the dedicated deployment option or the serverless deployment option. Currently, Autonomous Data Warehouse are only available using the serverless deployment option.

For Oracle By Example tutorials on provisioning Autonomous Databases, see Provisioning Autonomous Transaction Processing and Provisioning Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud.

Prerequisites

  • To create an Autonomous Database, you must be given the required type of access in a An IAM document that specifies who has what type of access to your resources. It is used in different ways: to mean an individual statement written in the policy language; to mean a collection of statements in a single, named "policy" document (which has an Oracle Cloud ID (OCID) assigned to it); and to mean the overall body of policies your organization uses to control access to resources. written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which A collection of related resources that can be accessed only by certain groups that have been given permission by an administrator in your organization. you should work in. See Authentication and Authorization for more information on user authorizations for the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database service.

    Tip

    See Let database admins manage Autonomous Databases for sample Autonomous Database policies. See Details for the Database Service for detailed information on policy syntax.

  • To create an Autonomous Transaction Processing database with the dedicated deployment option, you must first provision the infrastructure and at least one Autonomous Container Database. For more information, see Creating an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Instance and Creating an Autonomous Container Database. Note that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure does not currently offer Autonomous Data Warehouse databases with the dedicated deployment option.

Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console to Create an Autonomous Database

When provisioning an Autonomous Database using the serverless deployment option, you can choose either the transaction processing or the data warehouse workload types.

For Autonomous Transaction Processing databases, you can choose the dedicated deployment option. Dedicated deployment provides you with exclusive use of the Exadata infrastructure and hardware.

Using the API

Use the CreateAutonomousDatabase API operation to create Autonomous Transaction Processing databases of either the Transaction Processing or Warehouse workload types.

For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.
