Create a new data asset.


oci data-catalog data-asset create [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--catalog-id [text]

Unique catalog identifier.

--display-name [text]

A user-friendly display name. Does not have to be unique, and it's changeable. Avoid entering confidential information.

--type-key [text]

The key of the data asset type. This can be obtained via the '/types' endpoint.

Optional Parameters

--description [text]

Detailed description of the data asset.

--from-json [text]

Provide input to this command as a JSON document from a file using the file://path-to/file syntax.

The --generate-full-command-json-input option can be used to generate a sample json file to be used with this command option. The key names are pre-populated and match the command option names (converted to camelCase format, e.g. compartment-id --> compartmentId), while the values of the keys need to be populated by the user before using the sample file as an input to this command. For any command option that accepts multiple values, the value of the key can be a JSON array.

Options can still be provided on the command line. If an option exists in both the JSON document and the command line then the command line specified value will be used.

For examples on usage of this option, please see our "using CLI with advanced JSON options" link:

--properties [complex type]

A map of maps that contains the properties which are specific to the data asset type. Each data asset type definition defines it's set of required and optional properties. The map keys are category names and the values are maps of property name to property value. Every property is contained inside of a category. Most data assets have required properties within the "default" category. To determine the set of optional and required properties for a data asset type, a query can be done on '/types?type=dataAsset' that returns a collection of all data asset types. The appropriate data asset type, which includes definitions of all of it's properties, can be identified from this collection. Example: {"properties": { "default": { "host": "host1", "port": "1521", "database": "orcl"}}} This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.
