Returns a list of sources, containing detailed information about them. You may limit the number of results, provide sorting order, and filter by information such as display name, description and entity type.


oci log-analytics source list-sources [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The ID of the compartment in which to list resources.

--namespace-name [text]

The Logging Analytics namespace used for the request.

Optional Parameters


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

--categories [text]

A comma-separated list of categories used for filtering

--entity-type [text]

A filter to return only sources associated with entities of the specified type. The match is case-insensitive.

--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:

--is-auto-associated [boolean]

An auto-associate flag used for filtering. Only sources which are marked for automatic association will be returned.

--is-simplified [boolean]

A flag specifying whether or not to return all source information, or a subset of the information about each source. A value of true will return only the source unique identifier and the source name. A value of false will return all source information (such as author, updated date, system flag, etc.)

--is-system [text]

The system value used for filtering. Only items with the specified system value will be returned. Valid values are built in, custom (for user defined items), or all (for all items, regardless of system value).

Accepted values are:

--limit [integer]

The maximum number of items to return.

--name [text]

A filter to return only log analytics entities whose name matches the entire name given. The match is case-insensitive.

--page [text]

The page token representing the page at which to start retrieving results. This is usually retrieved from a previous list call.

--page-size [integer]

When fetching results, the number of results to fetch per call. Only valid when used with --all or --limit, and ignored otherwise.

--sort-by [text]

The attribute used to sort the returned sources

Accepted values are:

associationCount, name, sourceType, timeUpdated
--sort-order [text]

The sort order to use, either ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC).

Accepted values are:

--source-display-text [text]

The source display text used for filtering. Only sources with the specified name or description will be returned.

--source-type [text]

The source type.

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.
