Connects this RPC to another one in a different region.

This operation must be called by the VCN administrator who is designated as the requestor in the peering relationship. The acceptor must implement an Identity and Access Management (IAM) policy that gives the requestor permission to connect to RPCs in the acceptor’s compartment. Without that permission, this operation will fail. For more information, see VCN Peering.


oci network remote-peering-connection connect [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--peer-id [text]

The OCID of the RPC you want to peer with.

--peer-region-name [text]

The name of the region that contains the RPC you want to peer with.

The region names that could be used are listed here:


--remote-peering-connection-id [text]

The OCID of the remote peering connection (RPC).

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:

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.

    export compartment_id=<substitute-value-of-compartment_id> #
    export peer_id=<substitute-value-of-peer_id> #
    export peer_region_name=<substitute-value-of-peer_region_name> #

    drg_id=$(oci network drg create --compartment-id $compartment_id --query --raw-output)

    remote_peering_connection_id=$(oci network remote-peering-connection create --compartment-id $compartment_id --drg-id $drg_id --query --raw-output)
