Gets the specified instance console connection's information.

If you are attempting to start a VNC connection to an instance from a Windows machine without SSH installed, you can consider using plink instead. The 'oci compute instance-console-connection get-plink-connection-string' command returns a PowerShell command which uses plink to launch the SSH tunnel necessary to start a VNC connection to the instance.


oci compute instance-console-connection get [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--instance-console-connection-id [text]

The OCID of the instance console connection.

Optional Parameters

--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:
