During ConTech2021 Christian Gohmann will present REST in Peace – Administration of an Oracle Cluster/Database using REST

For huge Oracle environments; automation is one of the key aspects to handle maintenance tasks; monitoring etc. in an effective manner. With the introduction of ORDS and its REST APIs these tasks can be handled by calling simple URLs. See how you can control your Oracle database using REST calls.
Nowadays REST APIs are provided by more and more tools to allow self-written applications to integrate additional functionalities; like gathering performance statistics or creating new objects in a database.
Oracle does the same and provides access to the database using the Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) infrastructure. With version 19.1 ORDS was enhanced with a new so-called Database Management API. This API allows the administration of a database using simple REST calls.
Some examples:
Start a Data Pump Export or Import
Get performance statistics or objects details
Create a new Pluggable Database

The presentation will demonstrate in a live demo how to configure ORDS and its Database Management API. Simple administration tasks are shown by calling the particular REST endpoint.
Besides this API; REST enabled functionalities of orachk and other Oracle tools will also be discussed.
