(Doc ID 2240476.1)
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 30, 2019
Oracle Database Cloud Service Information in this document applies to any platform.
Database upgrade to a new major version in the on-premise environment is very well documented but upgrading to a new major version in Oracle Database Cloud Service (DBCS) instances is not yet documented. With the recent release of Oracle Database 12.2, customers with 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124, more customers are beginning to investigate how to upgrade their DBCS instance. This document serves as a guide to applying the information found in the Oracle Database 12.2 Upgrade Guide to the process of upgrading their database in the Oracle Cloud.
