MySQL HeatWave on AWS  /  ...  /  Sign-up Procedure

2.2.2 Sign-up Procedure

To sign up for MySQL HeatWave on AWS:

  1. Create an Oracle Cloud Account (or proceed to Step 2 below if you already have one):
    1. Navigate to https://cloud.mysql.com and click Sign Up.
    2. Enter an email address and click Continue.
    3. Enter the Account Information and click Verify my email.
    4. In the verification email, click Verify email to verify the email address and continue the account setup process.
    5. Complete the Account Information, including Password, Customer type, Cloud Account Name, and Home Region. Click Continue after you are done.

      Tip:

      An Oracle Cloud Account has a single region limit by default. For the Home Region, choose the OCI region that maps to your preferred AWS region (for which MySQL HeatWave on AWS is supported) to avoid the need for a region increase. See: Region Availability and Subscribed Region Limits for details.
    6. Complete the Address Information and click Continue.
    7. Click Add payment verification method and complete Payment Verification.
    8. Select Agreement, and click Start my free trial. Your Oracle Cloud account is being set up, which might take a while. You will then be directed to the Oracle Cloud Sign In Page.
  2. Sign in to the Oracle Cloud Console:

    Note:

    To sign up for MySQL HeatWave on AWS, the registered user must either be a member of the Administrators group in the OCI Default identity domain (which is the case if you have gone through Step 1 above) or have the following permissions:

    • manage heatwave-registration

    • manage policies

    • manage domains

    • manage groups

    • read limits

    • update tenancies

    See Manage Identity Domain and Getting Started with Policies for more details on identity domains and policies on OCI.

    1. On the Oracle Cloud Sign In page, enter your Oracle Cloud account name and click Next. Continue your sign in on the next page by providing your account credentials. After a successful sign in, you are directed to the Oracle Cloud Console.
    2. Go to the MySQL HeatWave on AWS Administration page by doing one of the following:
      • If you have gone through Steps 1 to sign up for an account, you should see on the Get Started tab the Get started with MySQL HeatWave on AWS banner. Click the Go to service button on it.
      • If you already had an Oracle Cloud account and did not go through Step 1 before signing in to the Oracle Cloud Console, open the navigation menu on the top left and select Databases. Under MySQL HeatWave on AWS, click Administration to go to the MySQL HeatWave on AWS Administration page.
  3. Enable MySQL HeatWave on AWS service:

    2. In the Enable MySQL HeatWave on AWS on <AWS Region> dialog box, click Enable.

      The MySQL HeatWave on AWS Administration page shows the current status of the sign-up process. Wait for the process to finish.

    If the OCI region that maps to your preferred AWS region does NOT show Subscribed, follow these steps to subscribe to the desired OCI region (skip to step b if yours is already a paid account, and skip to step c if you already have sufficient region limits to subscribe to a new OCI region):
    1. Request an account upgrade
      1. On the MySQL HeatWave on AWS Administration page, click the Request Upgrade button.
      2. On the Upgrade page, complete the payment information by clicking the Add Payment Method button and following the steps.

      4. From the Upgrade Confirmation dialog box, click Continue.

        The account upgrade might take some time.

    2. Request a region limit increase:
      1. From the OCI Console, Open the Help menu (Help menu), and under Targeted help, click Request service limit increase. The Support Options page opens.
      2. Follow the steps in Requesting a Limit Increase to the Subscribed Region Count.
    3. Subscribe to the preferred region and enable the MySQL HeatWave on AWS service:
