oracle.oci.oci_blockstorage_volume – Manage a Volume resource in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Note

This plugin is part of the oracle.oci collection (version 4.10.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install oracle.oci.

To use it in a playbook, specify: oracle.oci.oci_blockstorage_volume.

New in version 2.9.0: of oracle.oci

Synopsis

  • This module allows the user to create, update and delete a Volume resource in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • For state=present, creates a new volume in the specified compartment. Volumes can be created in sizes ranging from 50 GB (51200 MB) to 32 TB (33554432 MB), in 1 GB (1024 MB) increments. By default, volumes are 1 TB (1048576 MB). For general information about block volumes, see Overview of Block Volume Service.

  • A volume and instance can be in separate compartments but must be in the same availability domain. For information about access control and compartments, see Overview of the IAM Service. For information about availability domains, see Regions and Availability Domains. To get a list of availability domains, use the ListAvailabilityDomains operation in the Identity and Access Management Service API.

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

  • This resource has the following action operations in the oracle.oci.oci_blockstorage_volume_actions module: change_compartment.

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.
