(For tenancies that support identity domains) Replicates the identity domain to a new region (provided that the region is the tenancy home region or other region that the tenancy subscribes to). You can only replicate identity domains that are in an ACTIVE lifecycleState and not currently updating or already replicating. You also can only trigger the replication of secondary identity domains. The default identity domain is automatically replicated to all regions that the tenancy subscribes to.

After you send the request, the state of the identity domain in the replica region is set to ENABLING_REPLICATION. When the operation completes, the state is set to REPLICATION_ENABLED.

To track the progress of the request, submitting an HTTP GET on the /iamWorkRequests/{iamWorkRequestsId} endpoint retrieves the operation’s status.


oci iam domain enable-replication-to-region [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--domain-id [text]

The OCID of the identity domain.

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: 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.

--max-wait-seconds [integer]

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

--replica-region [text]

A region to which you want identity domain replication to occur. See Regions and Availability Domains for the full list of supported region names.


--wait-for-state [text]

This operation asynchronously creates, modifies or deletes a resource and uses a work request to track the progress of the operation. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the work request reaches a certain 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 work request has reached the 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.
