Accepts log data for processing by Logging Analytics.


oci log-analytics upload upload-log-file [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--file [text]

Log data file. Example: –file /Users/me/myfile.txt

--filename [text]

The name of the file being uploaded. The extension of the filename part will be used to detect the type of file (like zip, tar).

--log-source-name [text]

Name of the log source that will be used to process the files being uploaded.

--namespace-name, --namespace, -ns [text]

The Logging Analytics namespace used for the request.

--opc-meta-loggrpid [text]

The log group OCID to which the log data in this upload will be mapped to.

--upload-name [text]

The name of the upload. This can be considered as a container name where different kind of logs will be collected and searched together. This upload name/id can further be used for retrieving the details of the upload, including its status or deleting the upload.

Optional Parameters

--char-encoding [text]

Character encoding to be used to detect the encoding type of file(s) being uploaded. When this property is not specified, system detected character encoding will be used.

--content-md5 [text]

The base-64 encoded MD5 hash of the body. If the Content-MD5 header is present, Logging Analytics performs an integrity check on the body of the HTTP request by computing the MD5 hash for the body and comparing it to the MD5 hash supplied in the header. If the two hashes do not match, the log data is rejected and an HTTP-400 Unmatched Content MD5 error is returned with the message:

“The computed MD5 of the request body (ACTUAL_MD5) does not match the Content-MD5 header (HEADER_MD5)”

--content-type [text]

The content type of the log data.

--date-format [text]

This property is used to specify the format of the date. This is to be used for ambiguous dates like 12/11/10. This property can take any of the following values - MONTH_DAY_YEAR, DAY_MONTH_YEAR, YEAR_MONTH_DAY, MONTH_DAY, DAY_MONTH.

--date-year [text]

Used to indicate the year where the log entries timestamp do not mention year (Ex: Nov 8 20:45:56).

--entity-id [text]

The entity OCID.

--expect [text]

A value of 100-continue requests preliminary verification of the request method, path, and headers before the request body is sent. If no error results from such verification, the server will send a 100 (Continue) interim response to indicate readiness for the request body. The only allowed value for this parameter is “100-Continue” (case-insensitive).

--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

--invalidate-cache [boolean]

This property can be used to reset configuration cache in case of an issue with the upload.

--log-set [text]

The log set that gets associated with the uploaded logs.

--timezone [text]

Timezone to be used when processing log entries whose timestamps do not include an explicit timezone. When this property is not specified, the timezone of the entity specified is used. If the entity is also not specified or do not have a valid timezone then UTC is used

Example using required parameter

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.
