Synopsis

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

  • For state=present, creates a new zone in the specified compartment.

  • Private zones must have a zone type of PRIMARY. Creating a private zone at or under oraclevcn.com within the default protected view of a VCN-dedicated resolver is not permitted.

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

Requirements

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

If the key is encrypted with a pass-phrase, the api_user_key_pass_phrase option must also be provided.
api_user_key_pass_phrase
string
Passphrase used by the key referenced in api_user_key_file, if it is encrypted. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_PASS_PHRASE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key passphrase is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location).

If this 'auth_type' module option is not specified, the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_AUTH_TYPE, if any, is used. Use auth_type="instance_principal" to use instance principal based authentication when running ansible playbooks within an OCI compute instance.
