Use the Endpoint of Your Home Region for All IAM API Calls
When you sign up for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle creates a tenancy for you in one region. This is your home region. Your home region is where your IAM resources are defined. When you subscribe to a new region, your IAM resources are replicated in the new region, however, the master definitions reside in your home region and can only be changed there. Make all IAM API calls against your home region endpoint. The changes automatically replicate to all regions. If you try to make an IAM API call against a region that is not your home region, you will receive an error. See What is the tenancy home region? How do I find my tenancy home region?
In addition to these endpoints, each vault has a unique endpoint for create, update, and list operations for keys. This endpoint is referred to as the control plane URL or management endpoint. Each vault also has a unique endpoint for cryptographic operations. This endpoint is known as the data plane URL or the cryptographic endpoint.
