launch-compute-instance

Description

Launches an instance from an instance configuration.

If the instance configuration does not include all of the parameters that are required to launch an instance, such as the availability domain and subnet ID, you must provide these parameters when you launch an instance from the instance configuration. For more information, see the InstanceConfiguration resource.

Usage

oci compute-management instance-configuration launch-compute-instance [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--instance-configuration-id [text]

The OCID of the instance configuration.

Optional Parameters

--block-volumes [complex type]

This option is a JSON list with items of type InstanceConfigurationBlockVolumeDetails. For documentation on InstanceConfigurationBlockVolumeDetails please see our API reference: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/iaas/20160918/datatypes/InstanceConfigurationBlockVolumeDetails. This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--from-json [text]

Provide input to this command as a JSON document from a file using the file://path-to/file syntax.

The --generate-full-command-json-input option can be used to generate a sample json file to be used with this command option. The key names are pre-populated and match the command option names (converted to camelCase format, e.g. compartment-id --> compartmentId), while the values of the keys need to be populated by the user before using the sample file as an input to this command. For any command option that accepts multiple values, the value of the key can be a JSON array.

Options can still be provided on the command line. If an option exists in both the JSON document and the command line then the command line specified value will be used.

For examples on usage of this option, please see our "using CLI with advanced JSON options" link: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/API/SDKDocs/cliusing.htm#AdvancedJSONOptions
