Examples

Creating a vNIC set while working with new instances

cURL Command

The following example shows how to create a virtual NIC set by submitting a POST request on the REST resource using cURL. For more information about cURL, see Use cURL.

For new instances that you create in an IP network, create an empty vNIC set and then specify the multipart name of the empty vNIC set in the networking section of the orchestration or launch plan. For example, if you create a vNIC set with the name /Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset_new_instance, then specify ???vnicsets": ["/Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset_new_instance"] in the networking section of the orchestration or launch plan. When the instance is created, vNICs are automatically populated in the vNIC set that you mentioned in the orchestration or launch plan. When you delete the instance, the vNICs are automatically removed from the vNIC set.

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 "@vnicset.json"
        https://api-z999.compute.us0.oraclecloud.com/network/v1/vnicset/
  • 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.

Example of Request Body

The following shows an example of the request body content in the vnicset.json file to create a virtual NIC set called /Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset_new_instance.

{
  "name": "/Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset_new_instance"
}

Example of Response Body

The following example shows the response body in JSON format.

Creating a vNIC set while working with existing instances

cURL Command

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

For existing instances that are available in the IP network, use the GET method to get details of the virtual NICs of an instance, and then add the virtual NICs to a virtual NIC set.

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 "@vnicset.json"
        https://api-z999.compute.us0.oraclecloud.com/network/v1/vnicset/
  • 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.

Example of Request Body

The following shows an example of the request body content in the vnicset.json file to create a virtual NIC set called /Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset1 and adding two virtual NICs to this set.

{
  "name": "/Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/vnicset1",
  "vnics": [
    "/Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/inst2/4f0840bd-49dc-4d7f-bcc2-628c0cd5006b/eth1",
