Schedules the deletion of the specified certificate authority (CA) version. This sets the lifecycle state of the CA version to PENDING_DELETION and then deletes it after the specified retention period ends. If needed, you can determine the status of the deletion by using GetCertificateAuthorityVersion.


oci certs-mgmt certificate-authority-version schedule-deletion [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--certificate-authority-id [text]

The OCID of the certificate authority (CA).

--version-number [integer]

The version number of the certificate authority (CA).

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:

--if-match [text]

For optimistic concurrency control. In the PUT or DELETE call for a resource, set the if-match parameter to the value of the etag from a previous GET or POST response for that resource. The resource will be updated or deleted only if the etag you provide matches the resource’s current etag value.
