create

Description

Creates a network load balancer.

Usage

oci nlb network-load-balancer create [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The OCID of the compartment containing the network load balancer.

--display-name [text]

Network load balancer identifier, which can be renamed.

--subnet-id [text]

The subnet in which the network load balancer is spawned OCIDs.

Optional Parameters

--backend-sets [complex type]

Backend sets associated with the network load balancer.

This option is a JSON dictionary of type dict(str, BackendSetDetails). For documentation on BackendSetDetails please see our API reference: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/networkloadbalancer/20200501/datatypes/BackendSetDetails. This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--defined-tags [complex type]

Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. Example: {“foo-namespace”: {“bar-key”: “value”}} This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--freeform-tags [complex type]

Simple key-value pair that is applied without any predefined name, type, or scope. Exists for cross-compatibility only. Example: {“bar-key”: “value”} This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--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

--is-preserve-source-destination [boolean]

This parameter can be enabled only if backends are compute OCIDs. When enabled, the skipSourceDestinationCheck parameter is automatically enabled on the load balancer VNIC, and packets are sent to the backend with the entire IP header intact.

--is-private [boolean]

Whether the network load balancer has a virtual cloud network-local (private) IP address.

If “true”, then the service assigns a private IP address to the network load balancer.

If “false”, then the service assigns a public IP address to the network load balancer.

A public network load balancer is accessible from the internet, depending on the security list rules for your virtual cloud network. For more information about public and private network load balancers, see How Network Load Balancing Works. This value is true by default.

Example:

true
--listeners [complex type]

Listeners associated with the network load balancer.

This option is a JSON dictionary of type dict(str, ListenerDetails). For documentation on ListenerDetails please see our API reference: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/networkloadbalancer/20200501/datatypes/ListenerDetails. This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--max-wait-seconds [integer]

The maximum time to wait for the work request to reach the state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 1200 seconds.

--network-security-group-ids [complex type]

An array of network security groups OCIDs associated with the network load balancer.

During the creation of the network load balancer, the service adds the new load balancer to the specified network security groups.

The benefits of associating the network load balancer with network security groups include:

  • Network security groups define network security rules to govern ingress and egress traffic for the network load balancer.

  • The network security rules of other resources can reference the network security groups associated with the network load balancer to ensure access.

Example:

["ocid1.nsg.oc1.phx.unique_ID"]

This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--nlb-ip-version [text]

IP version associated with the NLB.

Accepted values are:

IPV4, IPV4_AND_IPV6
--reserved-ips [complex type]

An array of reserved Ips.

This option is a JSON list with items of type ReservedIP. For documentation on ReservedIP please see our API reference: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/networkloadbalancer/20200501/datatypes/ReservedIP. This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.

--wait-for-state [text]

This operation asynchronously creates, modifies or deletes a resource and uses a work request to track the progress of the operation. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the work request reaches a certain state. Multiple states can be specified, returning on the first state. For example, --wait-for-state SUCCEEDED --wait-for-state FAILED would return on whichever lifecycle state is reached first. If timeout is reached, a return code of 2 is returned. For any other error, a return code of 1 is returned.

Accepted values are:

ACCEPTED, CANCELED, CANCELING, FAILED, IN_PROGRESS, SUCCEEDED
--wait-interval-seconds [integer]

Check every --wait-interval-seconds to see whether the work request has reached the state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 30 seconds.

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.
