Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage URI Formats


Autonomous Database supports only standard-tier storage buckets. It does not support archive-tier storage buckets.

If your source files reside in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage, you can use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure native URIs, Swift URIs, or pre-authenticated request URIs:

  • Native URI format:



    You can view the Native URI of an object (such as an uploaded file) in its Object Details dialog:

    1. Go to the Bucket Details page of the bucket containing the object.
    2. In the bucket's list of objects, click the action menu action menu icon and choose View Object Details.

      The URL Path (URI) field displays the object's Native URI value.

  • Swift URI format:

  • Pre-Authenticated Request URI format:


    For information about creating pre-authenticated request URIs, see Using Pre-Authenticated Requests in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Documentation.


You can view the object-storage-namespace value for a bucket in the Namespace field of the bucket's Bucket Details page.

Here are example URIs for the myfile.dmp file in the mybucket bucket in the us-phoenix-1 region. (idthydc0kinr is the object storage namespace.)
