create

Description

Creates a boot disk image for the specified instance or imports an exported image from the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage service.

When creating a new image, you must provide the OCID of the instance you want to use as the basis for the image, and the OCID of the compartment containing that instance. For more information about images, see Managing Custom Images.

When importing an exported image from Object Storage, you specify the source information in ImageSourceDetails.

When importing an image based on the namespace, bucket name, and object name, use ImageSourceViaObjectStorageTupleDetails.

When importing an image based on the Object Storage URL, use ImageSourceViaObjectStorageUriDetails. See Object Storage URLs and Using Pre-Authenticated Requests for constructing URLs for image import/export.

For more information about importing exported images, see Image Import/Export.

You may optionally specify a display name for the image, which is simply a friendly name or description. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it. See UpdateImage. Avoid entering confidential information.

Usage

oci compute image create [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The OCID of the compartment you want the image to be created in.

Optional Parameters

--defined-tags [complex type]

Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags.

Example:

{"Operations": {"CostCenter": "42"}}

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.

--display-name [text]

A user-friendly name for the image. It does not have to be unique, and it's changeable. Avoid entering confidential information.

You cannot use an Oracle-provided image name as a custom image name.

Example:

My Oracle Linux image
--freeform-tags [complex type]

Free-form tags for this resource. Each tag is a simple key-value pair with no predefined name, type, or namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags.

Example:

{"Department": "Finance"}

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

--image-source-details [complex type]

[DEPRECATED] The use of the oci compute image create command to import an image from Object Storage is deprecated.

 Please use the oci compute image import command instead.

Details for creating an image through import 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.

Example:

'{ "objectName": "image-to-import.qcow2", "bucketName": "MyBucket", "namespaceName": "MyNamespace", "sourceType": "objectStorageTuple" }'

or

'{ "sourceUri": "https://objectstorage.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/n/MyNamespace/b/MyBucket/o/image-to-import.qcow2", "sourceType": "objectStorageUri" }'

--instance-id [text]

The OCID of the instance you want to use as the basis for the image.

--launch-mode [text]

Specifies the configuration mode for launching virtual machine (VM) instances. The configuration modes are: * NATIVE - VM instances launch with paravirtualized boot and VFIO devices. The default value for Oracle-provided images. * EMULATED - VM instances launch with emulated devices, such as the E1000 network driver and emulated SCSI disk controller. * PARAVIRTUALIZED - VM instances launch with paravirtualized devices using virtio drivers. * CUSTOM - VM instances launch with custom configuration settings specified in the LaunchOptions parameter.

Accepted values are:

CUSTOM, EMULATED, NATIVE, PARAVIRTUALIZED
--max-wait-seconds [integer]

The maximum time to wait for the resource to reach the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 1200 seconds.

--wait-for-state [text]

This operation creates, modifies or deletes a resource that has a defined lifecycle state. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the resource reaches a given lifecycle state. Multiple states can be specified, returning on the first state. For example, --wait-for-state SUCCEEDED --wait-for-state FAILED would return on whichever lifecycle state is reached first. If timeout is reached, a return code of 2 is returned. For any other error, a return code of 1 is returned.

Accepted values are:

AVAILABLE, DELETED, DISABLED, EXPORTING, IMPORTING, PROVISIONING
--wait-interval-seconds [integer]

Check every --wait-interval-seconds to see whether the resource to see if it has reached the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 30 seconds.
