Listing Boot Volumes

You can list all boot volumes in a specific compartment, or detailed information on a single boot volume.

Required IAM Service Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be given the required type of access in a An IAM document that specifies who has what type of access to your resources. It is used in different ways: to mean an individual statement written in the policy language; to mean a collection of statements in a single, named "policy" document (which has an Oracle Cloud ID (OCID) assigned to it); and to mean the overall body of policies your organization uses to control access to resources. 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 A collection of related resources that can be accessed only by certain groups that have been given permission by an administrator in your organization. you should work in.

For administrators: The policy in Let users launch instances includes the ability to list volumes. The policy in Let volume admins manage block volumes and backups 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. If you want to dig deeper into writing policies for instances, cloud networks, or other Core Services API resources, see Details for the Core Services.

Using the Console

  1. Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Compute and click Boot Volumes.

  2. Choose your Compartment.

A detailed list of volumes in the current compartment is displayed. To see detailed information for a specific volume, click the boot volume name.

The instance associated with the boot volume is listed in the Attached Instance field. If the value for this field displays:

None in this Compartment.
the boot volume has been detached from the associated instance, or the instance has been terminated while the boot volume was preserved.

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.
