Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) instances may now be enabled with a private access channel (PAC) to reach private data sources.
Private Access Channel compliments and provides an alternative to Remote Data Gateway (RDG) for the private data sources it supports. Both PAC and RDG may be used within the same instance of OAC. There may be sources that PAC supports and RDG does not and vice-versa.
This post is a step-by-step guide for enabling PAC within a public or private OAC instance. This is one of the post listed in the OAC Private End Point Series.
