Note

This plugin is part of the oracle.oci collection (version 4.11.0).

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_compute_image.

New in version 2.9.0: of oracle.oci

Synopsis

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

  • For state=present, 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.

  • This resource has the following action operations in the oracle.oci.oci_compute_image_actions module: change_compartment, export.
