Each Oracle Cloud Infrastructure tenant is assigned one unique and uneditable Object Storage namespace. The namespace is a system-generated string assigned during account creation. For some older tenancies, the namespace string may be the tenancy name in all lower-case letters. You cannot edit a namespace.

GetNamespace returns the name of the Object Storage namespace for the user making the request. If an optional compartmentId query parameter is provided, GetNamespace returns the namespace name of the corresponding tenancy, provided the user has access to it.


oci os ns get [OPTIONS]

Optional Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

This is an optional field representing either the tenancy OCID or the compartment OCID within the tenancy whose Object Storage namespace is to be retrieved.

--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:

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.
