How do I create an artifact?

If you're a partner who is approved for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure product, then you can create artifacts.

If you're creating an artifact for a stack listing, then ensure that the Terraform configuration file is available and it is ready to be uploaded. Ensure that you have completed the prerequisites and your Terraform configuration file complies with the guidelines. See How do I Publish an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Stack?

If you're creating an artifact for an image listing, ensure that you have uploaded the image to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure before creating the artifact. See How do I Publish an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Image?
