Connect to a cloud console
This topic describes how to connect to a cloud console through SCA. You have two options for connecting, based on whether you want to elevate your privileges for this work session or use your current permissions.
If you want to use the cloud management console with your current permissions, click the link in the instructions to connect directly to the console instead of via the options available in the list.
