Managing an Autonomous Database

This topic describes the database management tasks for Autonomous Databases that you complete using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console or the API. Note that some database management tasks not covered here are performed using the Autonomous Transaction Processing service console or the Autonomous Data Warehouse service console.


To perform the management tasks in this topic, 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. See Let database and fleet administrators manage Autonomous Databases for sample Autonomous Database policies. See Details for the Database Service for detailed information on policy syntax.

Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console

You can perform basic administrative tasks for Autonomous Databases in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console including stopping, starting, and scaling your databases. You can also use the Console to back up or to restore the database.

To set the Admin password
To scale the CPU core count or storage of an Autonomous Database
To enable or disable auto scaling for an Autonomous Database with serverless deployment
To view CPU allocation hourly snapshot data for an Autonomous Database
To move an Autonomous Database to another compartment
To stop or start an Autonomous Database
To terminate an Autonomous Database
To check the lifecycle state of your Autonomous Database
To view a work request for your Autonomous Database
To manage tags for your Autonomous Database
To access the Autonomous Database service console (serverless deployments only)
To change the license type of an Autonomous Database
To manage the access control list of an Autonomous Database with Serverless Deployment
To register or deregister an Autonomous Database with Data Safe

Using the API

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.

Use these API operations to manage Autonomous Databases:
