Examples

cURL Command

The following example shows how to update <a/an resource>, /Compute-acme/jack.jones@example.com/allowed_video_servers, by submitting a PUT 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 PUT
     -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/seclist/jack.jones@example.com/allowed_video_servers
  • 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.

  • acme and jack.jones@example.com are example values. Replace acme with the identity domain ID of your Compute Classic account, and jack.jones@example.com with your user name.
