Moves the specified tag namespace to the specified compartment within the same tenancy.

To move the tag namespace, you must have the manage tag-namespaces permission on both compartments. For more information about IAM policies, see Details for IAM.

Moving a tag namespace moves all the tag key definitions contained in the tag namespace.


oci iam tag-namespace change-compartment [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--compartment-id, -c [text]

The Oracle Cloud ID (OCID) of the destination compartment.

--tag-namespace-id [text]

The OCID of the tag namespace.

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:

--is-lock-override [boolean]

Whether to override locks (if any exist).

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.

    export compartment_id=<substitute-value-of-compartment_id> #
    export description=<substitute-value-of-description> #
    export name=<substitute-value-of-name> #

    tag_namespace_id=$(oci iam tag-namespace create --compartment-id $compartment_id --description $description --name $name --query --raw-output)

    oci iam tag-namespace change-compartment --compartment-id $compartment_id --tag-namespace-id $tag_namespace_id
