Updates the configuration for a WAAS policy. Only the fields specified in the request body will be updated; all other properties will remain unchanged.


oci waas policy-config update [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--waas-policy-id [text]

The OCID of the WAAS policy.

Optional Parameters

--certificate-id [text]

The OCID of the SSL certificate to use if HTTPS is supported.

--cipher-group [text]


Accepted values are:

--client-address-header [text]

The HTTP header used to pass the client IP address from the CDN if isBehindCdn is enabled. This feature consumes the header and its value as the true client IP address. It does not create the header. Using trusted chains (for example X-Client-Ip:,, the last IP address in the list will be used as true client IP address. In case of multiple headers with the same name, the first one will be used. If the header is not present it will use the connecting IP address as the true client IP address. It's assumed that CDN sets the correct client IP address and prevents spoofing.

  • X_FORWARDED_FOR: Corresponds to X-Forwarded-For header name.
  • X_CLIENT_IP: Corresponds to X-Client-Ip header name.
  • X_REAL_IP: Corresponds to X-Real-Ip header name.
  • CLIENT_IP: Corresponds to Client-Ip header name.
  • TRUE_CLIENT_IP: Corresponds to True-Client-Ip header name.

Accepted values are:


Perform update without prompting for confirmation.

--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

--if-match [text]

For optimistic concurrency control. In the PUT or DELETE call for a resource, set the if-match parameter to the value of the etag from a previous GET or POST response for that resource. The resource will be updated or deleted only if the etag provided matches the resource's current etag value.

--is-behind-cdn [boolean]

Enable or disable the use of CDN. It allows to specify true client IP address if clients do not connect directly to us.

--is-cache-control-respected [boolean]

Enable or disable automatic content caching based on the response cache-control header. This feature enables the origin to act as a proxy cache. Caching policies are usually defined using cache-control header. For example cache-control: max-age=120 means that the returned resource is valid for 120 seconds. Caching rules will overwrite this setting.

--is-https-enabled [boolean]

Enable or disable HTTPS support. If true, a certificateId is required. If unspecified, defaults to false.

--is-https-forced [boolean]

Force HTTP to HTTPS redirection. If unspecified, defaults to false.

--is-origin-compression-enabled [boolean]

Enable or disable GZIP compression of origin responses. If enabled, the header Accept-Encoding: gzip is sent to origin, otherwise - empty Accept-Encoding: header is used.

--is-response-buffering-enabled [boolean]

Enable or disable buffering of responses from the origin. Buffering improves overall stability in case of network issues, but slightly increases Time To First Byte.

--max-wait-seconds [integer]

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

--tls-protocols [text]

A list of allowed TLS protocols. Only applicable when HTTPS support is enabled. It affects client's connection to the edge nodes. The most secure TLS version will be chosen. - TLS_V1: corresponds to TLS 1.0 specification.

  • TLS_V1_1: corresponds to TLS 1.1 specification.
  • TLS_V1_2: corresponds to TLS 1.2 specification.
  • TLS_V1_3: corresponds to TLS 1.3 specification.

Enabled TLS protocols must go in a row. For example if TLS_v1_1 and TLS_V1_3 are enabled, TLS_V1_2 must be enabled too.

Accepted values are:

TLS_V1, TLS_V1_1, TLS_V1_2, TLS_V1_3
--wait-for-state [text]

This operation asynchronously creates, modifies or deletes a resource and uses a work request to track the progress of the operation. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the work request reaches a certain state. 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:

--wait-interval-seconds [integer]

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