Copy from Object Store (v2)

Use the Copy from Object Store (v2) REST API to copy a file or a backup snapshot from the Oracle Object Storage Cloud (the source) to the cloud environment (the target). If you are copying a backup snapshot, this API copies it from the Object Storage bucket and extracts its contents in Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud.

This topic describes the simplified v2 version of this REST API. This version contains all parameters in the payload and does not require URL encoding while calling the REST APIs. This makes the v2 API easier to use. This API is backwards compatible.

Before using the REST resources, you must understand how to access the REST resources and other important concepts. See About the REST APIs. Using this REST API requires prerequisites. See Prerequisites.

This REST API is version v2.

Table 8-66 Parameters

Name Description Type Required Default

The URL for Oracle Cloud Object Storage, appended with the bucket name and an optional object name.

This is the URL format: :

Components of this URL:

  • region_identifier is a Oracle Cloud Infrastructure hosting region.
  • namespace is the top-level container for all buckets and objects. Each Oracle Cloud Infrastructure tenant is assigned a unique system-generated and immutable Object Storage namespace name at account creation time. Your tenancy's namespace name, for example, axaxnpcrorw5, is effective across all regions.
  • bucket_name is the name of a logical container where you store your data and files. Buckets are organized and maintained under compartments. A system-generated bucket name, for example, bucket-20210301-1359 reflects the current year, month, day, and time.
  • object_name is the name of the snapshot or file that you want to copy from Oracle Object Storage Cloud.
