Moving a Topic

Move a topic in Notifications to another compartment. Its associated subscriptions remain in their existing compartment.


To move resources between compartments, resource users must have sufficient access permissions for the compartment that the resource is being moved to and the current compartment. For more information about permissions for Notifications resources, see IAM Policies in Securing Notifications.

The moved topic is subject to policies of the destination compartment. Inherent policies in the destination compartment apply immediately and affect access to the moved resource through the Console. For more information about moving resources, see Moving Resources to a Different Compartment.
