This post details the steps required to create private Autonomous Database (ADB) data connections. Data connections are used for Data Visualization (DV) data sets. Note: at this time a private ADB may not be used with console or replication connections.
ADB refers to both Autonomous Data Warehouse and Autonomous Transaction Processing databases.
Refer here for details on creating RPD connections to private autonomous databases.

Before creating private ADB connections, you must have an ADB wallet zip file, credentials for an ADB schema owner and Remote Data Gateway (RDG) deployed and connected to OAC.
Refer here for the steps to obtain an ADB Wallet Zip File.
If you provisioned ADB, use those credentials (username and password) or obtain the credentials from an ADB administrator.
Remote Data Gateway is required by OAC to access most databases with private end points including a private ADB. Refer here for various deployment strategies.
If the RDG is installed in a different Virtual Cloud Network than the ADB, refer here for additional instructions.
A data connection is used to create DV data sets.
Click Home to return to the DV home page
Click an ADB connection type
Complete the connection details and click Save.
Provide a Connection Name and optionally a Description.
Click Select and choose the Client Credentials zip file download from the ADB. The cwallet.sso file is extracted from the zip file by OAC and shown in the window.
Use the Username e.g. Admin and Password specified when the ADB instance was created or a different Schema's credentials.
Choose the Service Name from the drop-down list provided. The list comes from the tnsnames.ora file that is also in the zipped file.
Check the Use Remote Data Connectivity box.
You can now create DV data sets from the connection.
