Synopsis

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

  • For state=present, creates a virtual test access point (VTAP) in the specified compartment.

  • For the purposes of access control, you must provide the OCID of the compartment that contains the VTAP. For more information about compartments and access control, see Overview of the IAM Service. For information about OCIDs, see Resource Identifiers.

  • You may optionally specify a display name for the VTAP, otherwise a default is provided. It does not have to be unique, and you can change it.

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

Requirements

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