create

Description

Creates a new tag in the specified tag namespace.

The tag requires either the OCID or the name of the tag namespace that will contain this tag definition.

You must specify a name for the tag, which must be unique across all tags in the tag namespace and cannot be changed. The name can contain any ASCII character except the space (_) or period (.) characters. Names are case insensitive. That means, for example, "myTag" and "mytag" are not allowed in the same namespace. If you specify a name that's already in use in the tag namespace, a 409 error is returned.

The tag must have a description. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it with UpdateTag.

The tag must have a value type, which is specified with a validator. Tags can use either a static value or a list of possible values. Static values are entered by a user applying the tag to a resource. Lists are created by you and the user must apply a value from the list. Lists are validiated.

  • If no validator is set, the user applying the tag to a resource can type in a static value or leave the tag value empty. * If a validator is set, the user applying the tag to a resource must select from a list of values that you supply with EnumTagDefinitionValidator.

Usage

oci iam tag create [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--description [text]

The description you assign to the tag during creation.

--name [text]

The name you assign to the tag during creation. This is the tag key definition. The name must be unique within the tag namespace and cannot be changed.

--tag-namespace-id [text]

The OCID of the tag namespace.

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.

--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

--is-cost-tracking [boolean]

Indicates whether the tag is enabled for cost tracking.

--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.

--validator [complex type]

The tag must have a value type, which is specified with a validator. Tags can use either a static value or a list of possible values. Static values are entered by a user applying the tag to a resource. Lists are created by you and the user must apply a value from the list. Lists are validiated.

If you use the default validiator (or don't define a validator), the user applying the tag enters a value. No additional validation is performed.

To clear the validator, call UpdateTag with DefaultTagDefinitionValidator. 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.

--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:

ACTIVE, DELETED, DELETING, INACTIVE
--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.
