Retires a tag so that it cannot be used to tag resources. Retiring a tag will also retire the related rules. You can not create a tag with the same name as a retired tag. Tags must be unique within their tag namespace but can be repeated across namespaces. You cannot add a tag with the same name as a retired tag in the same tag namespace.


oci iam tag retire [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--tag-name [text]

The name of the tag.

--tag-namespace-id [text]

The OCID of the tag namespace.

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:
