Oracle databases need to be added to oracle cloud control as a target in order to be able to monitor and manage them through Oracle Cloud Control.

We select “Add Targets Using Guided Process” on the screen.

In the Target Types section, select Oracle Database, Listener and Automatic Storage Management and click “Add Using Guided Process ….”

We select the cluster on which the database on the cluster will be added to the screen and click select.

On the following screen, we select the option “all hosts in the cluster” and click next.
