Lists the resource-types supported by compartment bulk actions. Use this API to help you provide the correct resource-type information to the BulkDeleteResources and BulkMoveResources operations. The returned list of resource-types provides the appropriate resource-type names to use with the bulk action operations along with the type of identifying information you’ll need to provide for each resource-type. Most resource-types just require an OCID to identify a specific resource, but some resource-types, such as buckets, require you to provide other identifying information.


oci iam bulk-action-resource-type-collection list [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--bulk-action-type [text]

The type of bulk action.

Accepted values are:


Optional Parameters


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

--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:

--limit [integer]

The maximum number of items to return in a paginated “List” call.

--page [text]

The value of the opc-next-page response header from the 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.

Example using required parameter

Copy the following CLI commands into a file named Run the command by typing “bash” 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.
