  • Hi,

    It's a free tier account. It has some service limits.

    For detailed information about the Always Free resources, see Details of the Always Free Resources.

    You can find your tenancy’s limits for Always Free resources in the Console. To check these limits: Open the navigation menu. Under Governance and Administration, go to Limits, Quotas and Usage.


  • I would like to add that there is no OAC in the free tier category (
    You should be able to create an OAC using your Trial Credits. If you can't, it might be a limits issue, as mentioned by Elói

  • Hi Eloi

    I checked the Governance and Administration and noticed that analytics resources are not allocated in the free tier, can i assume that the OAC is not provisioned with the free tier.
