Creates a request that specifies preferences for the tenancy regarding receiving announcements by email.


oci announce announcements-preferences create [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--preference-type [text]

The string representing the user’s preference, whether to opt in to only required announcements, to opt in to all announcements, including informational announcements, or to opt out of all announcements.

Accepted values are:

--type [text]

The entity type, which specifies a model that either creates new announcement email preferences or updates existing preferences.

Optional Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The OCID of the compartment for which you want to manage announcement email preferences. (Specify the tenancy by providing the root compartment OCID.)

--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:

--is-unsubscribed [boolean]

A Boolean value to indicate whether the specified compartment chooses to not to receive informational announcements by email. (Manage preferences for receiving announcements by email by specifying the preferenceType attribute instead.)
