Credential for OCI (Oracle Cloud)

Official documentation:

Once the credential has been generated, we need the following parameters:

– user: ex: ocid1.user.oc1……
– tenancy: ex: ocid1.tenancy.oc1…..
– region: Sao Paulo, Ausburn, etc
– pem: text file with key, starts with “—–BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY—–“
– fingerprint: fingerprint of the key

For IAM:

define tenancy usage-report as ocid1.tenancy.oc1..aaaaaaaaned4fkpkisbwjlr56u7cj63lf3wffbilvqknstgtvzub7vhqkggq
Allow group xxxx to read all-resources in tenancy
endorse group xxxx to read objects in tenancy usage-report

(to process the costs it is necessary to maintain the tenancy code above  as it is from Oracle itself)
