description
string
A string that describes the details of the action. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it. Avoid entering confidential information.
function_id
string
The OCID of a Function hosted by Oracle Functions Service.

topic_id
string
The OCID of the topic to which messages are delivered.
Applicable when action_type is 'ONS'
api_user
string
The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_ID environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the user is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the user's OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_fingerprint
string
Fingerprint for the key pair being used. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_FINGERPRINT environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key fingerprint is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the key pair's fingerprint value please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_key_file
string
Full path and filename of the private key (in PEM format). If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_FILE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the private key is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). 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).
auth_purpose
string
    Choices:
  • service_principal
The auth purpose which can be used in conjunction with 'auth_type=instance_principal'. The default auth_purpose for instance_principal is None.
auth_type
string
    Choices:
  • api_key ←
  • instance_principal
  • instance_obo_user
  • resource_principal
The type of authentication to use for making API requests. By default auth_type="api_key" based authentication is performed and the API key (see api_user_key_file) in your config file will be used. 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.
cert_bundle
string
The full path to a CA certificate bundle to be used for SSL verification. This will override the default CA certificate bundle. If not set, then the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_CERT_BUNDLE variable, if any, is used.
compartment_id
string
The OCID of the compartment to which this rule belongs.
Required for create using state=present.
Required for update when environment variable OCI_USE_NAME_AS_IDENTIFIER is set.
Required for delete when environment variable OCI_USE_NAME_AS_IDENTIFIER is set.
condition
string
A filter that specifies the event that will trigger actions associated with this rule. A few important things to remember about filters:
* Fields not mentioned in the condition are ignored. You can create a valid filter that matches all events with two curly brackets: `{}`
For more examples, see Matching Events with Filters. * For a condition with fields to match an event, the event must contain all the field names listed in the condition. Field names must appear in the condition with the same nesting structure used in the event.
For a list of reference events, see Services that Produce Events. * Rules apply to events in the compartment in which you create them and any child compartments. This means that a condition specified by a rule only matches events emitted from resources in the compartment or any of its child compartments. * Wildcard matching is supported with the asterisk (*) character.
For examples of wildcard matching, see Matching Events with Filters
Example: `\"eventType\": \"com.oraclecloud.databaseservice.autonomous.database.backup.end\"`
Required for create using state=present.
This parameter is updatable.

Path to configuration file. If not set then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to ~/.oci/config.
config_profile_name
string
The profile to load from the config file referenced by config_file_location. If not set, then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_PROFILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to the "DEFAULT" profile in config_file_location.

aliases: id
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
The state of the Rule.
Use state=present to create or update a Rule.
Use state=absent to delete a Rule.

This option is required if the tenancy OCID is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the tenancy OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Whether to wait for create or delete operation to complete.
