          "bootable": true,
          "imagelist": "/oracle/public/oel_6.6_20GB_x11_RD",
          "properties": ["/oracle/public/storage/default"],
          "size": "22548578304"

Parameter Required or Optional Description

name

required

The three-part name of the object (/Compute-identity_domain/user/object).

Object names can contain only alphanumeric characters, hyphens, underscores, and periods. Object names are case-sensitive.

size

required

The size of this storage volume.

Use one of the following abbreviations for the unit of measurement:

  • B or b for bytes

  • K or k for kilobytes

  • M or m for megabytes

  • G or g for gigabytes

  • T or t for terabytes

For example, to create a volume of size 10 gigabytes, you can specify 10G, or 10240M, or 10485760K, and so on.

The allowed range is from 1 GB to 2 TB, in increments of 1 GB.

properties

required

Based on your latency and IOPS requirements, select one of the following storage properties:

  • For standard latency and throughput, specify /oracle/public/storage/default.

  • For high latency and throughput, specify /oracle/public/storage/latency.

  • For the highest latency and throughput, specify /oracle/public/storage/ssd/gp1.

description

optional

The description of the storage volume.

bootable

optional

Indicates whether the storage volume can be used as the boot disk for an instance.

The default value is False (not a bootable volume).

If you set the value to True, then you must specify values for the following parameters:

  • imagelist

    The machine image that you want to extract on to the storage volume that you’re creating.

  • imagelist_entry

    (Optional) The version of the image list entry that you want to extract. The default value is 1.

tags
