Updates the specified export’s information.


oci fs export update [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--export-id [text]

The OCID of the export.

Optional Parameters

--export-options [complex type]

New export options for the export.

Setting to the empty array will make the export invisible to all clients.

Leaving unset will leave the exportOptions unchanged.

This option is a JSON list with items of type ClientOptions. For documentation on ClientOptions please see our API reference: https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/filestorage/20171215/datatypes/ClientOptions. This is a complex type whose value must be valid JSON. The value can be provided as a string on the command line or passed in as a file using the file://path/to/file syntax.

The --generate-param-json-input option can be used to generate an example of the JSON which must be provided. We recommend storing this example in a file, modifying it as needed and then passing it back in via the file:// syntax.


Perform update without prompting for confirmation.

--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

--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.

--is-idmap-groups-for-sys-auth [boolean]

Whether or not the export should use ID mapping for Unix groups rather than the group list provided within an NFS request’s RPC header. When this flag is true the Unix UID from the RPC header is used to retrieve the list of secondary groups from a the ID mapping subsystem. The primary GID is always taken from the RPC header. If ID mapping is not configured, incorrectly configured, unavailable, or cannot be used to determine a list of secondary groups then an empty secondary group list is used for authorization. If the number of groups exceeds the limit of 256 groups, the list retrieved from LDAP is truncated to the first 256 groups read.

--max-wait-seconds [integer]

The maximum time to wait for the resource to reach the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 1200 seconds.

--wait-for-state [text]

This operation creates, modifies or deletes a resource that has a defined lifecycle state. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the resource reaches a given lifecycle state. Multiple states can be specified, returning on the first state. For example, --wait-for-state SUCCEEDED --wait-for-state FAILED would return on whichever lifecycle state is reached first. If timeout is reached, a return code of 2 is returned. For any other error, a return code of 1 is returned.

Accepted values are:

--wait-interval-seconds [integer]

Check every --wait-interval-seconds to see whether the resource has reached the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 30 seconds.

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.
