» oci_core_image

This resource provides the Image resource in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Core service.

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.

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • compartment_id - (Required) (Updatable) The OCID of the compartment containing the instance you want to use as the basis for the image.
  • defined_tags - (Optional) (Updatable) Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags. Example: {"Operations.CostCenter": "42"}
  • display_name - (Optional) (Updatable) 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 - (Optional) (Updatable) 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"}

  • image_source_details - (Optional) Details for creating an image through import

    • bucket_name - (Required when source_type=objectStorageTuple) The Object Storage bucket for the image.
    • namespace_name - (Required when source_type=objectStorageTuple) The Object Storage namespace for the image.
    • object_name - (Required when source_type=objectStorageTuple) The Object Storage name for the image.
    • source_image_type - (Optional) The format of the image to be imported. Only monolithic images are supported. This attribute is not used for exported Oracle images with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure image format. Allowed values are:
    • source_type - (Required) The source type for the image. Use objectStorageTuple when specifying the namespace, bucket name, and object name. Use objectStorageUri when specifying the Object Storage URL.
    • source_uri - (Required when source_type=objectStorageUri) The Object Storage URL for the image.
  • instance_id - (Optional) The OCID of the instance you want to use as the basis for the image.

  • launch_mode - (Optional) 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.

** IMPORTANT ** Any change to a property that does not support update will force the destruction and recreation of the resource with the new property values
