Create an IP Network Exchange

post

/network/v1/ipnetworkexchange/

Create an IP network exchange to enable access between IP networks that have non-overlapping addresses, so that instances on these networks can exchange packets with each other without NAT.

After creating an IP network exchange, you can add IP networks to the same IP network exchange to enable access between instances on these IP networks. Use PUT /network/v1/ipnetwork/{name} request to add an IP network to an IP network exchange. An IP network exchange can include multiple IP networks, but an IP network can be added to only one IP network exchange.

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.

Examples

cURL Command

The following example shows how to create an IP network exchange by submitting a POST request on the REST resource using cURL. For more information about cURL, see Use cURL.

Enter the command on a single line. Line breaks are used in this example for readability.

curl -i -X POST
     -H "Cookie: $COMPUTE_COOKIE"
     -H "Content-Type: application/oracle-compute-v3+json"
     -H "Accept: application/oracle-compute-v3+json"
     -d "@requestbody.json"
        https://api-z999.compute.us0.oraclecloud.com/network/v1/ipnetworkexchange/
  • COMPUTE_COOKIE is the name of the variable in which you stored the authentication cookie earlier. For information about retrieving the authentication cookie and storing it in a variable, see Authentication.

  • api-z999.compute.us0.oraclecloud.com is an example REST endpoint URL. Change this value to the REST endpoint URL of your Compute Classic site. For information about finding out REST endpoint URL for your site, see Send Requests.
