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_identity_tag_namespace.

New in version 2.9.0: of oracle.oci

Synopsis

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

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

  • You must specify the compartment ID in the request object (remember that the tenancy is simply the root compartment).

  • You must also specify a name for the namespace, which must be unique across all namespaces in your tenancy and cannot be changed. The name can contain any ASCII character except the space (_) or period (.). Names are case insensitive. That means, for example, “myNamespace” and “mynamespace” are not allowed in the same tenancy. Once you created a namespace, you cannot change the name. If you specify a name that’s already in use in the tenancy, a 409 error is returned.

  • You must also specify a description for the namespace. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it with UpdateTagNamespace.

  • This resource has the following action operations in the oracle.oci.oci_identity_tag_namespace_actions module: add_tag_namespace_lock, cascade_delete, change_compartment, remove_tag_namespace_lock.

Requirements

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

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
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.
