Register the DB System

You can register the DB system from the Targets tab in the Oracle Data Safe Console. During registration, you configure a TCP or TLS connection. For a TLS connection, you need to upload a wallet or a certificate.

To register the DB system:
  1. Sign in to the Oracle Data Safe Console.
  2. Click the Targets tab.
  3. Click Register.
    The Register Target dialog box is displayed.
  4. Enter a name for your target database.
    This name can be any name you want, and all characters are accepted. The maximum number of characters is 512.
    This name appears in all of the Oracle Data Safe reports that pertain to your target database.
  5. (Optional) Enter a description for your target database.
  6. Leave Oracle Database selected as the target type.
    Currently, Oracle Database is the only option.
  7. Select the resource group to which you want the target database to belong. Or, enter the name of a new resource group.

    The Default Resource Group is selected by default.

    The target database is added to the specified resource group.

    You can add a target database to only one resource group and you cannot change the resource group after the target database is registered.

  8. In the OCID field, enter the Oracle Cloud Identifier (OCID) for your target database; for example, ocid1.dbsystem.oc1.iad.abcd1eef2bcd1xxyabcd12...
    The OCID is used to validate whether you have the inspect, use, or manage privilege on the target database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (IAM).
    The OCID for the target database is available in the database's console in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  9. For connection type, select TCP or TLS.

    The default selection is TCP.

  10. Enter the Hostname/IP Address, Port Number, and Database Service Name for the target database.
    Enter the long version of the database service name, for example, You can find the name in the database's console in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
    Oracle Data Safe supports only a public IP address as a database network address. The public IP address should match the public IP address for the database in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console.
  11. If you are configuring a TLS connection, do the following:
    1. Enter the Target Distinguished Name.
      This name is the distinguished name used while creating the certificate on target database.
      An example name is,OU=Oracle BMCS US,O=Oracle Corporation,L=Redwood City,ST=California,C=US.
    2. Select a wallet or certificate type and complete the steps in the following table.
      Wallet or Certificate Type SSL_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION (parameter value on target database) Steps
      JKS Wallet TRUE
      1. Click the first Choose File button, and select a truststore.jks file.
      2. Click the second Choose File button, and select a keystore.jks file.
      3. Enter the wallet password.
      JKS Wallet FALSE
      1. Click Choose File, select a trustore.jks file.
      2. Enter the wallet password.
      DER Certificate FALSE Click Choose File and select a CRT or DER file.
      PEM Certificate FALSE Click Choose File and select a PEM or DER file.
      NONE FALSE You do not need to upload any files.
  12. Enter the database user name and password that you created on the target database specifically for Oracle Data Safe.
    If you created the user on the target database without quotation marks, you must enter the user name in uppercase here. For example, if the user name on the target database is called test, then you must enter TEST.
    You cannot specify database roles, such as SYSDBA or SYSKM, and you cannot specify SYS as the user.
  13. (Optional) To verify that Oracle Data Safe can successfully connect to the target database, click Test Connection.
  14. Click Register Target.
    You cannot register the target database if the connection test fails or if the target database does not exist.
