Updating a Private Machine Image

After you’ve registered a private machine image in Compute Classic, if required, you can update the description of the machine image.

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 Infrastructure Classic Console. See Modifying User Roles in Managing and Monitoring Oracle Cloud.

  1. Sign in to the Compute Classic console. If your domain spans multiple sites, select the appropriate site. To change the site, click the Site menu near the top of the page.
  2. Click the Images tab.
    The Private Images page is displayed.
  3. Go to the image that you want to update, and from the menu icon menu, select Update.
  4. In the Update Image dialog box, edit the description of the image. Enter a meaningful description that will help you to identify the image and its attributes easily. Click Update.

To update an image using the CLI, use the opc compute image-list update command. For help with that command, run the command with the -h option. For the instructions to install the CLI client, see Preparing to Use the Compute Classic CLI in CLI Reference for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic.

To update an image description using the API, use the PUT /imagelist/name method. For more information, see REST API for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute Classic.
