Prior to creating an access rule, understand the default Source & Destination Address objects available in Oracle Cloud.

  • PUBLIC-INTERNET – Any host on Internet
  • OTD – All Oracle Traffic Director VMs
  • WLS_ADMIN_SERVER – All Weblogic Admin Servers
  • WLS_MANAGED_SERVER – All Weblogic Managed Servers
  • DB – Database, you can select database if more than one database is configured
  • Custom – Enter comma-separated list of subnets or IP address

There are also few Access Rules that are automatically created and Oracle want those rules to leave as it is, for example

  • Allow WLS_MANAGED_SERVER to access DB instance on port tcp/1521 and tcp/22
  • Allow PAAS-INFRA to access WLS_ADMIN_SERVER on port tcp/22

6.The rules cannot be reordered, click the Menu icon of each rule to either enable, disable or delete it.
