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.
current_version_number
integer
Details to update the secret version of the specified secret. The secret contents, version number, and rules can't be specified at the same time. Updating the secret contents automatically creates a new secret version.
This parameter is updatable.
defined_tags
dictionary
Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags. Example: `{"Operations": {"CostCenter": "42"}}`
This parameter is updatable.
description
string
A brief description of the secret. Avoid entering confidential information.
This parameter is updatable.
force_create
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Whether to attempt non-idempotent creation of a resource. By default, create resource is an idempotent operation, and doesn't create the resource if it already exists. Setting this option to true, forcefully creates a copy of the resource, even if it already exists.This option is mutually exclusive with key_by.
freeform_tags
dictionary
Free-form tags for this resource. Each tag is a simple key-value pair with no predefined name, type, or namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags. Example: `{"Department": "Finance"}`
This parameter is updatable.
key_by
list / elements=string
The list of attributes of this resource which should be used to uniquely identify an instance of the resource. By default, all the attributes of a resource are used to uniquely identify a resource.
key_id
string
The OCID of the master encryption key that is used to encrypt the secret. You must specify a symmetric key to encrypt the secret during import to the vault. You cannot encrypt secrets with asymmetric keys. Furthermore, the key must exist in the vault that you specify.
metadata
dictionary
Additional metadata that you can use to provide context about how to use the secret during rotation or other administrative tasks. For example, for a secret that you use to connect to a database, the additional metadata might specify the connection endpoint and the connection string. Provide additional metadata as key-value pairs.
This parameter is updatable.
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. This option is required if the region is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). Please refer to https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/regions.htm for more information on OCI regions.
secret_content
dictionary
Required for create using state=present.
This parameter is updatable.
content
string
The base64-encoded content of the secret.
content_type
string / required
    Choices:
  • BASE64
The base64-encoded content of the secret.
name
string
Names should be unique within a secret. Valid characters are uppercase or lowercase letters, numbers, hyphens, underscores, and periods.
stage
string
    Choices:
  • CURRENT
  • PENDING
The rotation state of the secret content. The default is `CURRENT`, meaning that the secret is currently in use. A secret version that you mark as `PENDING` is staged and available for use, but you don't yet want to rotate it into current, active use. For example, you might create or update a secret and mark its rotation state as `PENDING` if you haven't yet updated the secret on the target system. When creating a secret, only the value `CURRENT` is applicable, although the value `LATEST` is also automatically applied. When updating a secret, you can specify a version's rotation state as either `CURRENT` or `PENDING`.
secret_id
string
The OCID of the secret.
Required for update using state=present.

aliases: id
secret_name
string

Applicable when rule_type is 'SECRET_REUSE_RULE'
is_secret_content_retrieval_blocked_on_expiry
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
A property indicating whether to block retrieval of the secret content, on expiry. The default is false. If the secret has already expired and you would like to retrieve the secret contents, you need to edit the secret rule to disable this property, to allow reading the secret content.

rule_type
string / required
    Choices:
  • SECRET_EXPIRY_RULE
  • SECRET_REUSE_RULE
The type of rule, which either controls when the secret contents expire or whether they can be reused.
