Oracle Cloud – metered versus non-metered

The core Oracle Public Cloud Services including Java Cloud Service, Database Cloud Service, and Storage Cloud Service offerings are available in two ways: Metered and Non-metered. This post will attempt to explain the differences using Java Cloud Service as an example.

Metered services are a pre-paid offering, also referred to as “a-la-carte” or “committed” offerings. A metered cloud service like Java Cloud Service or Database Cloud Service is where you are charged based on the actual usage of the service resources on an hourly or monthly basis.

Non-metered services are a subscription-based offering, also referred to as “standard subscription” or “uncommitted” offerings. A Non-metered service is essentially a monthly or annual subscription for a fixed service configuration which you typically cannot change.

Retrieve logged-in user details – Web Form – Process Cloud

The following question was recently posted on the OTN Community for Oracle Process Cloud Service.

Does anyone know how to retrieve the details for a logged-in user in the new web forms? In basic (original) forms, a REST call could be made (while passing in ID of the logged-in user) using a business rule. This is a start form, so the user ID cannot be passed as a parameter from the process.
