Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager is a key new component of the Oracle E-Business Suite automation for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The tool was introduced with Release 18.3.1 of the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Tools, as described in September 2018 EBS Cloud Automation Updates for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (Including New Cloud Manager UI).
This new tool is a web-based application that drives all the principal automation flows, including provisioning new environments, performing lifecycle activities on those environments, and restoring environments from on-premises. It supersedes the EBS Cloud Admin Tool, providing all the capabilities of the older tool as well as supporting new flows that were introduced in the latest release of the automation.
Oracle Cloud Manager was designed to simplify the diverse tasks Oracle E-Business Suite DBAs perform on a daily basis, and with the goal of reducing the effort needed to perform them.
The introduction of this web application also provides the foundation for building further automation capabilities, with the user experience being a fundamental consideration at all stages of this process from inception to delivery.
Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager is deployed via an image that can be downloaded from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud and uploaded to the Object Storage for your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure account. After importing this image, you create a VM that contains all the software libraries required to run the tool as a web application. For step-by-step instructions on all as of the deployment procedure, refer to Deploying Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (Doc ID 2434500.1).
