list

Description

Returns a list of categories, containing detailed information about them. You may limit the number of results, provide sorting order, and filter by information such as category name or description.

Usage

oci log-analytics category list [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--namespace-name [text]

The Logging Analytics namespace used for the request.

Optional Parameters

--all

Fetches all pages of results. If you provide this option, then you cannot provide the --limit option.

--category-display-text [text]

The category display text used for filtering. Only categories matching the specified display name or description will be returned.

--category-type [text]

A comma-separated list of category types used for filtering. Only categories of the specified types will be returned.

--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: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/API/SDKDocs/cliusing.htm#AdvancedJSONOptions

--limit [integer]

The maximum number of items to return.

--name [text]

A filter to return only log analytics entities whose name matches the entire name given. The match is case-insensitive.

--page [text]

The page token representing the page at which to start retrieving results. This is usually retrieved from a previous list call.

--page-size [integer]

When fetching results, the number of results to fetch per call. Only valid when used with --all or --limit, and ignored otherwise.

--sort-by [text]

The attribute used to sort the returned categories

Accepted values are:

displayName, type
--sort-order [text]

The sort order to use, either ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC).

Accepted values are:

ASC, DESC

Examples

Copy the following CLI commands into a file named example.sh. Run the command by typing “bash example.sh” and replacing the example parameters with your own.

Please note this sample will only work in the POSIX-compliant bash-like shell. You need to set up the OCI configuration and appropriate security policies before trying the examples.
