Creates a replica for the vault in another region in the same realm

The API is a no-op if called for same region that a vault is already replicated to. 409 if called on a vault that is already replicated to a different region. Users need to delete existing replica first before calling it with a different region.

As a provisioning operation, this call is subject to a Key Management limit that applies to the total number of requests across all provisioning write operations. Key Management might throttle this call to reject an otherwise valid request when the total rate of provisioning write operations exceeds 10 requests per second for a given tenancy.


oci kms management vault create-vault-replica [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--replica-region [text]

The region in the realm to which the vault need to be replicated to

--vault-id [text]

The OCID of the vault.

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:

--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.
