Oracle OCI : Administer User, Groups, Compartments in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

In this blogpost about the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure I will describe how to administer user, groups etc. Refer to the first blogpost Getting started with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for explain the first steps with the OCI.

A user in the OCI can access, create and administer cloud services. The permissions for users can be consolidated in groups as policies. Policies define the allowed actions for group members and in which department.

A Compartment is logical group of resources that represents an organizational unit. Resources will be created in a compartment. You cannot move the cloud resources from one compartment into another…

Part 4: Configure APEX with ORDS, Apache-Tomcat und Nginx

This blog entry is the third and last part of the series „Create APEX in AWS“. Here I describe the installation and configuration of Apache Tomcat and the deployment of the ORDS application in Tomcat. Later I will explain the installation of the Webserver Nginx and configure it to access APEX via Apache Tomcat and ORDS.

Information about the installation of the APEX application in AWS can be found here. The installation and configuration of Oracle Data rest service is described  here.

Create Oracle APEX Environment in the Amazon Cloud with RDS: Part 1 – Overview

In this article I will describe the installation of APEX Environment in Amazon Web Service (AWS).

The whole environment includes following components:

  • AWS RDS: Oracle Database with activated APEX
  • VM (EC2 Container) with:
    • Oracle Rest Data Service (ORDS)
    • Apache Tomcat for the Hosting of the ORDS
    • Nginx: http Server

The major challenge is to install APEX without SYSDBA privilege, because the Oracle Database in the RDS is Vendor-Managed. Users cannot access the OS and do not have the database DBA role.

In my next Posts I will cover the following topics:
