Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_user
string
The OCID of the user, on whose behalf, OCI APIs are invoked. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_OCID environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the user is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the user's OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_fingerprint
string
Fingerprint for the key pair being used. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_FINGERPRINT environment variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key fingerprint is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the key pair's fingerprint value please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.
api_user_key_file
string
Full path and filename of the private key (in PEM format). If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_FILE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the private key is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). If the key is encrypted with a pass-phrase, the api_user_key_pass_phrase option must also be provided.
api_user_key_pass_phrase
string
Passphrase used by the key referenced in api_user_key_file, if it is encrypted. If not set, then the value of the OCI_USER_KEY_PASS_PHRASE variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the key passphrase is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location).
auth_type
string
    Choices:
  • api_key ←
  • instance_principal
The type of authentication to use for making API requests. By default auth_type="api_key" based authentication is performed and the API key (see api_user_key_file) in your config file will be used. If this 'auth_type' module option is not specified, the value of the OCI_ANSIBLE_AUTH_TYPE, if any, is used. Use auth_type="instance_principal" to use instance principal based authentication when running ansible playbooks within an OCI compute instance.
compartment_id
-
The OCID of the compartment.
Required to list multiple vcns.
config_file_location
string
Path to configuration file. If not set then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to ~/.oci/config.
config_profile_name
string
The profile to load from the config file referenced by config_file_location. If not set, then the value of the OCI_CONFIG_PROFILE environment variable, if any, is used. Otherwise, defaults to the "DEFAULT" profile in config_file_location.
display_name
-
A filter to return only resources that match the given display name exactly.

aliases: name
lifecycle_state
-
    Choices:
  • PROVISIONING
  • AVAILABLE
  • TERMINATING
  • TERMINATED
A filter to only return resources that match the given lifecycle state. The state value is case-insensitive.
region
string
The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region to use for all OCI API requests. If not set, then the value of the OCI_REGION variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the region is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). Please refer to https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/General/Concepts/regions.htm for more information on OCI regions.
sort_by
-
    Choices:
  • TIMECREATED
  • DISPLAYNAME
The field to sort by. You can provide one sort order (`sortOrder`). Default order for TIMECREATED is descending. Default order for DISPLAYNAME is ascending. The DISPLAYNAME sort order is case sensitive.
**Note:** In general, some "List" operations (for example, `ListInstances`) let you optionally filter by availability domain if the scope of the resource type is within a single availability domain. If you call one of these "List" operations without specifying an availability domain, the resources are grouped by availability domain, then sorted.
sort_order
-
    Choices:
  • ASC
  • DESC
The sort order to use, either ascending (`ASC`) or descending (`DESC`). The DISPLAYNAME sort order is case sensitive.
tenancy
string
OCID of your tenancy. If not set, then the value of the OCI_TENANCY variable, if any, is used. This option is required if the tenancy OCID is not specified through a configuration file (See config_file_location). To get the tenancy OCID, please refer https://docs.us-phoenix-1.oraclecloud.com/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm
vcn_id
-
The OCID of the VCN.
Required to get a specific vcn.

aliases: id

Examples

- name: List vcns
  oci_vcn_facts:
    compartment_id: ocid1.compartment.oc1..xxxxxxEXAMPLExxxxxx

- name: Get a specific vcn
  oci_vcn_facts:
    vcn_id: ocid1.vcn.oc1..xxxxxxEXAMPLExxxxxx
