Returns a list of desktops filtered by the specified parameters. You can limit the results to an availability domain, desktop name, desktop OCID, desktop state, pool OCID, or compartment OCID. You can limit the number of results returned, sort the results by time or name, and sort in ascending or descending order.


oci desktops desktop list [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The OCID of the compartment of the desktop pool.

Optional Parameters


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

--availability-domain [text]

The name of the availability domain.

--desktop-pool-id [text]

--display-name [text]

A filter to return only results with the given displayName.

--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:

--id [text]
