Permissions for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Updated

On this page

To enable users to perform operations for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, create policies that allow users or user groups to perform the required actions that are part of operations such as backup and recovery or VM conversion.

In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, create policies for each compartment level, and then create user groups with the same names as the policies.

To each user group, add the user who is used to create the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure hypervisor in Command Center.
