Delete an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic Container

delete

/integrations/osscontainer/{name}

Deletes the specified Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic container. When delete_remote attribute of the OSS container object is set to true, the associated Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic container is deleted along with all its objects when you delete the local OSS container object. When set to false, only the local OSS container object is deleted. To retrieve the value of the delete_remote attribute of the OSS container, use the GET /integrations/osscontainer/{name} method. To change the value of the delete_remote attribute of the OSS container object, use the PUT /integrations/osscontainer/{name} method. When delete_remote is set to true, all the objects in the remote container are deleted in batches of 200. The remote container is deleted when it is empty, and then the local OSS container object is deleted. When you send this command, the state of the OSS container object changes to deleting. The time taken to delete the object varies depending on the number of objects in the remote container.

Prerequisite: Ensure that you have selected a replication policy for your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic instance. See Selecting a Replication Policy for Your Service Instance in Using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage Classic.

Required Role: To complete this task, you must have the Compute_Operations role. If this role isn't assigned to you or you're not sure, then ask your system administrator to ensure that the role is assigned to you in Oracle Cloud My Services. See Modifying User Roles in Managing and Monitoring Oracle Cloud.
