Signing In to the Console

This topic describes how to sign in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.

Supported Browsers

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.

Before You Begin

To sign in to Oracle Cloud at https://cloud.oracle.com, you need:

  • User name and password
  • Your cloud account name

When your tenancy is provisioned, Oracle sends an email to the default administrator at your company with the sign-in credentials and URL. This administrator can then create a user for each person who needs access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Check your email or contact your administrator for your credentials and account name.

Signing In for the First Time

Links for signing in are also provided in your welcome email.

  1. Open a supported browser and go to https://cloud.oracle.com.

  2. Click Sign In.
  3. Enter your Cloud Account Name and click Next.
  4. Enter your user name and temporary password from your welcome email. You will be prompted to change your temporary password.

After you sign in, the Console Home page is displayed.

About the Console URL

Alternatively, you can sign in directly to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using the Console URL. When you sign up to use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you receive a customized URL for your organization. For example,

https://console.us-ashburn-1.oraclecloud.com/?tenant=CompanyABC

If you instead use the base URL (for example: https://console.us-ashburn-1.oraclecloud.com), you are prompted to specify your tenant (or cloud account name) on the sign-in page, along with your user name and password.
