How to identify the OIC IP address as determined by an Oracle database. (Doc ID 2896927.1)

Oracle Integration-OIC - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the OIC Console, the public outbound IP address for your OIC instance can be seen in the OIC About Page.

This is the OIC Public IP used for internet egress. And in most cases, this is the IP address that the database will see the OIC connections coming from.

However in some OIC to database configurations, this may not be the IP address (as seen by the database) for incoming connections from OIC.


If OIC and the database are in the same Oracle Cloud (OCI) region, then the IP address seen by the database for OIC connections, might be the OIC private IP(s), and not the OIC public IP.


If OIC connections to the database are being made using the OIC Connectivity Agent, then the IP seen by the database might be the IP of the Agent host, or perhaps the IP of a VCN, Service Gateway or proxy that is being used for routing from the Agent host to the database host.

 If the correct IP is required for allowlisting, how can the OIC IP being used to connect to the database be determined?
