Removing Packages from an Instance

Remove a package to uninstall it from an instance in Autonomous Linux.


If an instance is a member of a group, you can't change its contents directly. Instead, manage its content through its associated group.
    1. Open the navigation menu and click Observability & Management. Under Autonomous Linux, click Instances.
    2. Under List scope, select the compartment that contains the instance.
    3. Click the name of the instance.
    4. Under Resources, click Packages.
    5. Select the package versions to remove on the instance.

      Use the search box to find a specific package.
    6. Click Remove.
    7. Define the job that will remove the packages:

      Name: Enter a name for the job. The name doesn't need to be unique, because an Oracle Cloud Identifier (OCID) uniquely identifies the instance. Avoid entering confidential information.

      Description: (Optional) Enter a description for the job. Avoid entering confidential information.

      Schedule: Choose when to run the job.

      • Run immediately: Select this option to run the job now.
      • Schedule: Select this option to run the job at a future date and time. Click the calendar icon to select a date and time.
        • Automatic Retry: When selected, if the initial execution of the job fails, the service retries the job up three times. Each retry is five minutes apart.
        • Show advanced options: Click to add tags to this resource.

          If you have permissions to create a resource, then you also have permissions to apply free-form tags to that resource. To apply a defined tag, you must have permissions to use the tag namespace. For more information about tagging, see Resource Tags. If you're not sure whether to apply tags, ask an administrator or skip this option. You can apply tags later.

    8. Click Remove.
  • Use the oci os-management-hub managed-instance remove-packages command and required parameters to remove packages on a managed instance.

    oci os-management-hub managed-instance remove-packages --managed-instance-id ocid --package-names package-names.json [OPTIONS]

    For a complete list of flags and variable options for CLI commands, see the Command Line Reference.

  • Run the RemovePackagesFromManagedInstance operation to remove packages on a managed instance.
