Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Documentation

Listing Volumes

You can list all Block Volume volumes in a specific compartment, as well as detailed information on a single volume.

Required IAM Service Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be given the required type of access in a policy  written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment  you should work in.

For administrators: The policy in Let users launch Compute instances includes the ability to list volumes. The policy in Let volume admins manage block volumes, backups, and volume groups lets the specified group do everything with block volumes and backups, but not launch instances.

If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies. For reference material about writing policies for instances, cloud networks, or other Core Services API resources, see Details for the Core Services.

Using the Console

Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Block Storage and click Block Volumes. A detailed list of volumes in your current compartment is displayed.

  • To view the volumes in a different compartment, change the compartment in the Compartment drop-down menu.

Using the API

For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.
