Namespace CreateVcnDetails


Optional cidrBlock

cidrBlock: undefined | string

Deprecated. Do not set this value. Use cidrBlocks instead. Example:

Optional cidrBlocks

cidrBlocks: Array<string>

The list of one or more IPv4 CIDR blocks for the VCN that meet the following criteria:

  • The CIDR blocks must be valid.
  • They must not overlap with each other or with the on-premises network CIDR block.
  • The number of CIDR blocks must not exceed the limit of CIDR blocks allowed per VCN.

  • Important:* Do *not specify a value for cidrBlock. Use this parameter instead.


compartmentId: string

The OCID of the compartment to contain the VCN.

Optional definedTags

definedTags: undefined | object

Defined tags for this resource. Each key is predefined and scoped to a namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags.

Example: `{\"Operations\": {\"CostCenter\": \"42\"}}`

Optional displayName

displayName: undefined | string

A user-friendly name. Does not have to be unique, and it's changeable. Avoid entering confidential information.

Optional dnsLabel

dnsLabel: undefined | string

A DNS label for the VCN, used in conjunction with the VNIC's hostname and subnet's DNS label to form a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for each VNIC within this subnet (for example, bminstance-1.subnet123.vcn1.oraclevcn.com). Not required to be unique, but it's a best practice to set unique DNS labels for VCNs in your tenancy. Must be an alphanumeric string that begins with a letter. The value cannot be changed.

You must set this value if you want instances to be able to use hostnames to resolve other instances in the VCN. Otherwise the Internet and VCN Resolver will not work.

For more information, see [DNS in Your Virtual Cloud Network](https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/Network/Concepts/dns.htm).

Example: `vcn1`

Optional freeformTags

freeformTags: undefined | object

Free-form tags for this resource. Each tag is a simple key-value pair with no predefined name, type, or namespace. For more information, see Resource Tags.

Example: `{\"Department\": \"Finance\"}`

Optional isIpv6Enabled

isIpv6Enabled: undefined | false | true

Whether IPv6 is enabled for the VCN. Default is false. If enabled, Oracle will assign the VCN a IPv6 /56 CIDR block. For important details about IPv6 addressing in a VCN, see IPv6 Addresses.

Example: `true`
