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

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 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.
display_name
string
Use display_name along with the other options to return only resources that match the given display name exactly.
matching_context_type
string
    Choices:
  • NONE
  • HIGHLIGHTS
The type of matching context returned in the response. If you specify `HIGHLIGHTS`, then the service will highlight fragments in its response. (For more information, see ResourceSummary.searchContext and SearchContext.) The default setting is `NONE`.
query
string
The structured query describing which resources to search for.
Required when type is 'Structured'
region
string
The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region to use for all OCI API requests. If not set, then the value of the OCI_REGION variable, if any, is used.

Please refer to https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/regions.htm for more information on OCI regions.
tenancy
string
OCID of your tenancy. If not set, then the value of the OCI_TENANCY variable, if any, is used. 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
tenant_id
string
The tenancy ID, which can be used to specify a different tenancy (for cross-tenancy authorization) when searching for resources in a different tenancy.
text
string
The text to search for.
Required when type is 'FreeText'
type
string / required
    Choices:
  • Structured

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description

Additional resource attribute fields of this resource that match queries with a return clause, if any. For example, if you ran a query to find the private IP addresses, public IP addresses, and isPrimary field of the VNIC attachment on instance resources, that field would be included in the ResourceSummary object as: {"additionalDetails": {"attachedVnic": [{"publicIP" : "172.110.110.110","privateIP" : "10.10.10.10","isPrimary" : true}, {"publicIP" : "172.110.110.111","privateIP" : "10.10.10.11","isPrimary" : false}]}. The structure of the additional details attribute fields depends on the matching resource.

string
on success
The display name (or name) of this resource, if one exists.

Sample:
display_name_example

The unique identifier for this particular resource, usually an OCID.

Sample:
identifier_example
 
identity_context
dictionary
on success
Additional identifiers to use together in a "Get" request for a specified resource, only required for resource types that explicitly cannot be retrieved by using a single identifier, such as the resource's OCID.

 
lifecycle_state
string
on success

on success

   
highlights
dictionary
on success
Describes what in each field matched the search criteria by showing highlighted values, but only for free text searches or for structured queries that use a MATCHING clause. The list of strings represents fragments of values that matched the query conditions. Highlighted values are wrapped with <h1>..</h1> tags. All values are HTML-encoded (except <h1> tags).

 
system_tags
dictionary
