Restores a vault from an encrypted backup file. If a vault with the same OCID already exists, this operation returns a response with a 409 HTTP status error code.


oci kms management vault restore-from-file [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The OCID of the compartment.

--restore-vault-from-file-location [text]

The file location which contains the encrypted payload to upload to restore the vault.

Optional Parameters

--content-length [integer]

The content length of the body.

--content-md5 [text]

The base64-encoded MD5 hash value of the body, as described in RFC 2616, section 14.15. If the Content-MD5 header is present, Key Management 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 don’t match, the object is rejected and a response with 400 Unmatched Content MD5 error is returned, along with the message: “The computed MD5 of the request body (ACTUAL_MD5) does not match the Content-MD5 header (HEADER_MD5).”

--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.

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.
