Uninstalling the CLI

For Manual Installations

If you manually installed the CLI using pip, run the following command:

pip uninstall oci-cli

If you manually installed the CLI in a virtual environment, run the following command:

<path/to/virtualenv>/bin/pip uninstall oci-cli

For Script Installations

If you used the install script and the default installation location, you should delete the following directories.

On Windows:

  • %USERPROFILE%/lib/oracle-cli
  • %USERPROFILE%/bin/oci
  • %USERPROFILE%/bin/oci-cli-scripts

On Mac:

  • $HOME/lib/oracle-cli
  • $HOME/bin/oci
  • $HOME/bin/oci-cli-scripts

If you used the install script, but installed to a custom location, you should delete the directories at that location.

Uninstalling Python

The script also installs Python as a dependency if it was not already installed. In Windows 10, you can uninstall Python in Control Panel or at the command line.

Using Control Panel

To uninstall Python in Control Panel, select Programs and Features. Right-click Python and select Uninstall.

For more information, see Repair or remove programs in Windows 10.

Using the Command Line

To uninstall Python at the command line, run the following command:

msiexec /x python<version>.msi

If you do not have the MSI file, you can also use the package or product code. For more information, see Using the Windows Installer.

Uninstalling the CLI on Mac OS X with Homebrew

To unsinstall the CLI from Mac OS X using Homebew:

brew uninstall oci-cli
