Gets information about the specified external backup job.

Note: This API is used by an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Python script that is packaged with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure CLI. Oracle recommends that you use the script instead using the API directly. See Migrating an On-Premises Database to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure by Creating a Backup in the Cloud for more information.


oci db external-backup-job get [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--backup-id [text]

The backup OCID.

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:
