Purchase and Activate an Oracle Cloud Subscription

Before you can begin using Oracle Content and Experience, your organization must purchase a subscription, create a cloud account, and then activate the service.

You can purchase your Oracle Cloud Universal Credits subscription in one of two ways:

  • Through the Oracle Cloud website — If you use Universal Credits to purchase a subscription through the Oracle Cloud website self-service tools, your service will be activated automatically and you’ll create your cloud account as part of your subscription sign-up. See Buy an Oracle Cloud Subscription in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.
  • Through Oracle Sales — If you use Universal Credits to purchase a subscription through Oracle Sales, you need to create your cloud account and activate your service through the welcome email you received. See Activate Your Order from Your Welcome Email in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.
Note

If you're not able to create a cloud account when you purchase your subscription or when you activate your service, see Signing Up for a Cloud Account in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

For more information on subscriptions, see Overview of Oracle Cloud Subscriptions in Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

After your service is activated, you need to create your service instance.
