Retrieve Details of all Storage Properties in a Container



Retrieves details of the storage properties that are available in the specified container and match the specified query criteria. If you don't specify any query criteria, then details of all the storage properties in the container are displayed. To filter the search results, you can pass one or more of the following query parameters, by appending them to the URI in the following syntax:


Note: Other storage properties might be listed. But don't use any of them. For storage volumes that require low latency and high IOPS, such as for storing database files, select /oracle/public/storage/latency. For all other storage volumes, select /oracle/public/storage/default.

Required Role: To complete this task, you must have the Compute_Monitor or 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.

cURL Command

The following example shows how to retrieve details about all storage properties in the /oracle/public container by submitting a GET 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 -X GET 
     -H "Cookie: $COMPUTE_COOKIE"
     -H "Accept: application/oracle-compute-v3+json"
  • 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.

  • 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.
