Create Groups and Users to use with Oracle Functions, if they don't exist already

Before users can start using Oracle Functions to create and deploy functions, as a tenancy administrator you have to create Oracle Cloud Infrastructure user accounts, along with a group to which the user accounts belong. Later on, you'll define policies to give the group (and the user accounts that belong to it) access to function-related resources. If a suitable group and user accounts already exist, there's no need to create new ones.

To create groups and users to use with Oracle Functions:

  1. Log in to the Console as a tenancy administrator.
  2. If a suitable group for Oracle Functions users doesn't exist already, create such a group as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu. Under Governance and Administration, go to Identity and click Groups. A list of the groups in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Click Create Group and create a new group (see To create a group). Give the group a meaningful name (for example, acme-functions-developers) and description. Avoid entering confidential information.
  3. If suitable user accounts for Oracle Functions users don't exist already, create users as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu. Under Governance and Administration, go to Identity and click Users. A list of the users in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Click Create User and create one or more new users (see To create a user).
  4. If they haven't been added already, add users to the group to use Oracle Functions as follows:
    1. Open the navigation menu. Under Governance and Administration, go to Identity and click Users. A list of the users in your tenancy is displayed.
    2. Select one or more users and add them to the group authorized to use Oracle Functions (see To add a user to a group).
