Oracle by Example brandingAccessing Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

section 0Before You Begin

Note: This document applies only for Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager version 20.1.1.X. If you have upgraded to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager version 20.2.1 or later, see the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Guide instead.

This tutorial shows you how to access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and review basic environment information.

Background

Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager is a tool for managing Oracle E-Business Suite environments on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure through a graphical user interface. You can use Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to provision a new environment, provision an environment from a backup of an on-premises Oracle E-Business Suite instance as part of a lift and shift process, back up a previously provisioned Cloud environment and provision a new environment from that backup, or clone a previously provisioned environment. You can also delete environments that you no longer need.

What Do You Need?


section 1Log In to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager

Navigate to your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance at the URL established during its deployment. Log in with your Oracle Identity Cloud Service credentials.


section 2Specify Your User Details (Conditionally Required)

Before you can use Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager, you must specify user details in the Preferences page, including your user OCID and API signing key.

  1. When you log into Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager for the first time, the Preferences page appears by default. You can review the tenancy details for your Oracle Cloud account.
  2. In the Account Information region, enter your user OCID. Note that you cannot change the user OCID after it is saved.
  3. Click Upload and select the private .pem key file for your API signing key. Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager derives the fingerprint for your account from your key.
  4. Click Save. Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager displays a confirmation message and then displays the Environments page.

    After you have provided your user details, when you access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager again, the Environments page appears immediately after you log in.

  5. If you need to change your API signing key, click your user icon in the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager header and select Preferences to return to the Preferences page. You can then upload a new private .pem key file.

section 3Check Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Version

You should periodically check whether your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance is at the latest version.

  1. Click your user icon in the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager header and select About.
  2. The About the EBS Cloud Manager Console window displays the version number that is currently installed. If a later version is available, the window also displays a message indicating the version number that is available for update. We recommend that you update your instance as soon as feasible following the instructions in Section 2: Update Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to the Latest Version, My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 2434008.1, Managing the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine.

section 4Review Environments, Backups, Activities, and Network Profiles

  1. The Environments page lists the Oracle E-Business Suite environments provisioned in your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance, as well as incomplete installations from unsuccessful provisioning attempts.

    If you are logged in as an Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator, then the Environments page shows all environments provisioned in your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager instance. If you are logged in as a user without administrator privileges, then the page shows only environments that were created with network profiles to which you have access.

    By default, the page displays environments in all Oracle E-Business Suite compartments. You can optionally select a compartment in the EBS Compartment field to display only environments that reside in that compartment.

    Note that if you used Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to deploy an environment with Oracle Database Release 11.2.0.4 or Release 12.1.0.2, and you manually upgrade that environment to Oracle Database 19c, then the environment details in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager will be out of date and you can no longer manage that environment through the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager UI. However, for an environment with the database tier on Compute, you can run a script to refresh the metadata for the upgraded environment within Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager. After the environment metadata has been refreshed, you can once again manage the environment through the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager UI. See Section 3.11: Refresh Metadata for an Environment Upgraded to Oracle Database 19c, My Oracle Support Knowledge Document 2434008.1, Managing the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine.

  2. If you are logged in as an Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator, then the Environments page displays a Summary region. Use this region to review the total number of Oracle E-Business Suite environments provisioned on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, the number of Oracle E-Business Suite database tiers on each supported database service, and the number of Oracle E-Business Suite application tiers on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute virtual machines (VMs). You can also review the number of single node environments deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute, as described in Provision a New Oracle E-Business Suite Installation on a Single Node on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  3. Note that the summary totals include only successfully provisioned environments, while the list in the Environments region also includes incomplete installations, so the total shown in the Summary region may be less than the number of environments in the list.

  4. You can optionally enter a value in the Search Environment field to display only environments whose properties contain that value. You can search by the following environment properties shown in this page:
    • Environment name
    • Network profile that defines the network resources used by the environment
    • Oracle E-Business Suite compartment where the environment resides
    • Creation date and time
    • Database service type
    • Database name
    • Last activity performed for this environment in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager

    The page also displays the number of application tier nodes for the environment.

  5. To begin provisioning an environment, click Provision Environment and select One-Click or Advanced. See Using One-Click Provisioning in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or Using Advanced Provisioning in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  6. To review additional details for an environment, including any backups created from that environment, click the environment name link. See Reviewing Environment Details in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  7. To review details for the last activity performed for an environment, click the activity status link. See Reviewing Activity Status in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  8. To begin cloning an environment, click the action icon for that environment and select Clone. Note that you can clone only an existing Compute environment that was successfully provisioned. See Cloning an Environment Using Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  9. To begin deleting an environment, click the action icon for that environment and select Delete. You can delete both existing environments that you no longer need and any resources from unsuccessful attempts that you do not want to restart. See Deleting an Environment in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  10. To begin creating a backup of an environment, click the action icon for that environment and select Create Backup. Note that you can back up only an existing environment that was successfully provisioned. See Creating a Backup of an Oracle E-Business Suite Environment Using Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  11. To review the backups of Oracle E-Business Suite environments stored on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, click the Backups tab. The Backups tab includes both backups created from on-premises Oracle E-Business Suite environments and backups created from Oracle E-Business Suite environments that you previously provisioned on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. See Creating a Backup of an On-Premises Oracle E-Business Suite Instance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Creating a Backup of an Oracle E-Business Suite Environment Using Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

    You can use a backup to provision an environment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. You can also delete a backup that you no longer need. See Using Advanced Provisioning in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Deleting a Backup in Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
