oci db pluggable-database remote-clone [OPTIONS]

Required Parameters

--cloned-pdb-name [text]

The name for the pluggable database (PDB). The name is unique in the context of a container database. The name must begin with an alphabetic character and can contain a maximum of thirty alphanumeric characters. Special characters are not permitted. The pluggable database name should not be same as the container database name.

--pluggable-database-id [text]

The database OCID.

--source-container-db-admin-password [text]

The DB system administrator password of the source CDB.

--target-container-database-id [text]

The OCID of the target CDB

Optional Parameters

--from-json [text]

Provide input to this command as a JSON document from a file using the file://path-to/file syntax.

The --generate-full-command-json-input option can be used to generate a sample json file to be used with this command option. The key names are pre-populated and match the command option names (converted to camelCase format, e.g. compartment-id –> compartmentId), while the values of the keys need to be populated by the user before using the sample file as an input to this command. For any command option that accepts multiple values, the value of the key can be a JSON array.

Options can still be provided on the command line. If an option exists in both the JSON document and the command line then the command line specified value will be used.

For examples on usage of this option, please see our “using CLI with advanced JSON options” link:

--if-match [text]

For optimistic concurrency control. In the PUT or DELETE call for a resource, set the if-match parameter to the value of the etag from a previous GET or POST response for that resource. The resource will be updated or deleted only if the etag you provide matches the resource’s current etag value.

--is-pdb-admin-acc-locked [boolean]

The locked mode of the pluggable database admin account. If false, the user needs to provide the PDB Admin Password to connect to it. If true, the pluggable database will be locked and user cannot login to it.

--max-wait-seconds [integer]

The maximum time to wait for the resource to reach the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 1200 seconds.

--pdb-admin-password [text]

A strong password for PDB Admin of the newly cloned PDB. The password must be at least nine characters and contain at least two uppercase, two lowercase, two numbers, and two special characters. The special characters must be _, #, or -.

--target-tde-wallet-password [text]

The existing TDE wallet password of the target CDB.

--wait-for-state [text]

This operation creates, modifies or deletes a resource that has a defined lifecycle state. Specify this option to perform the action and then wait until the resource reaches a given lifecycle state. Multiple states can be specified, returning on the first state. For example, --wait-for-state SUCCEEDED --wait-for-state FAILED would return on whichever lifecycle state is reached first. If timeout is reached, a return code of 2 is returned. For any other error, a return code of 1 is returned.

Accepted values are:

--wait-interval-seconds [integer]

Check every --wait-interval-seconds to see whether the resource has reached the lifecycle state defined by --wait-for-state. Defaults to 30 seconds.

Example using required parameter

Copy the following CLI commands into a file named Run the command by typing “bash” and replacing the example parameters with your own.

Please note this sample will only work in the POSIX-compliant bash-like shell. You need to set up the OCI configuration and appropriate security policies before trying the examples.
