With the latest release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c,enhancements have been made to the REST API that now facilitate the administration as well as the operational use of features in the Cloud Pack for Oracle database that enable customers to now fully automate the administration of assets. It also facilitates the selfservice model for private cloud, enabling the customer to fully automate the actual request and governors of database needs by a given Line of Business. (LOBs). Through the use of the REST API, the customer can streamline the process of delivering critically needed databases to the LOBs at a fraction of the current Operational Expenses (OPEX) cost.
The "Enterprise Manager - Database as a Service - REST API Cookbook" is intended to provide direction and requirements for the execution of a Database as a Service (DBaaS) specific to the use of the REST API provided with the Cloud Pack for Oracle Database and should be reviewed/executed in a specific customer’s environment for accuracy. This document is intended to provide an operational best practices reference only, using calls that will facilitate the administration and execute of the DBaaS features.
