Scheduling with Developer Cloud Service (DevCS) the Start/Stop Sequence of an Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) Instance

Oracle Developer Cloud Service (DevCS) is a CI/CD environment provided by Oracle for cloud customers. It is almost free, you only pay for the storage and the compute utilised when jobs are run.

Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) is a powerful and proactive reporting tool.


Builds are the well known tasks typical in Jenkins:

Start OAC Instance Job

Create a new build job, go to Configure->Steps, from the [Add Step] dropdown listbox select “PSMCli” and “Unix Shell”.

In the PSMCli step provide user, password, identity-domain id (the id, not the name), region and output format.

In the Unix Shell step put:

psm AUTOANALYTICSINST start-service -s [instancename]

Now click on the “Settings” icon (the gears), go to Triggers tab and configure the scheduling utilising cronjob format:

Stop OAC Instance Job

Do same steps than above, except for the command systax which is:

 psm AUTOANALYTICSINST start-service -s [instancename]

And if you need to execute jobs depending ones on the others, you can utilise pipelines!


Create a build step, type one of the following and see the output (example):

psm help
psm [servicetype] help

Hope it helps! 🙂
