On the sign-in page, you are prompted to enter your cloud tenant, your user name, and your password. Once authenticated, you are directed to a region your tenancy is subscribed to. You can switch to other regions you are subscribed to by using the region selector at the top of the Console.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a set of APIs for the core services (network, compute, block volumes) as well as for the IAM and the Object Storage services.
For general information about using the API, see REST APIs. For service-specific operations, see the appropriate topic within the help.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure supports the latest desktop versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Safari, Firefox, and Firefox ESR. Note that private browsing mode is not supported for Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Edge. Mobile browsers are not supported.
If you are having trouble signing in to the Console using the Firefox browser, it might be due to one of the following conditions:
You are in Private Browsing mode. The Console does not support Private Browsing mode. Open a new session of Firefox with Private Browsing turned off.How do I know if I am in Private Browsing mode?
When you are in Private Browsing mode, a mask icon is displayed in the upper right corner of your Firefox window.
You are not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade to the latest version. To check to see if you are on the latest version, follow these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/find-what-version-firefox-you-are-using
When checking the version, note whether you are using Firefox or Firefox ESR.
- Your Firefox user profile is corrupted. To fix this issue:
Upgrade to the latest version of Firefox.
- Create a new user profile and open Firefox with the new profile. See Mozilla Support for instructions on how to create a new user profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
If none of the above resolves your issue, contact Oracle Support. In your problem description, make sure you specify whether you are using Firefox or Firefox ESR.
For Federated Users
If your company uses an identity provider (other than Oracle Identity Cloud Service) to manage user logins and passwords, you can't use the Console to update your password. You do that with your identity provider.
- Sign in to the Console using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Username and Password.
After you sign in, go to the top-right corner of the Console, open the Profile menu () and then click Change Password.
- Enter the current password.
- Follow the prompts to enter the new password, and then click Save New Password.
If you added an email address to your user settings, you can use the Forgot Password link on the sign-in page to have a temporary password sent to you. If you don't have an email address included with your user details, then an administrator must reset your password. Contact your administrator to reset your password for you. Your administrator will give you a temporary password that is good for 7 days. If you do not use it in 7 days, the password will expire and you'll need to get your administrator to create a new one-time password for you.
