OCI doesn’t have a concept of releases vs daily images, so both API calls refer to the same thing. To get the list for a release of Ubuntu:
The returned image id can then be used for launching instances.
Launching instances requires at minimum an image_id, though instance_type (shape in Oracle terms) can also be specified, in addition to the other parameters specified by the base API.
A snapshot of an instance is used to generate a new backing image. The generated image can in turn get used to launch new instances. This allows for customization of an image and then re-use of that image.
inst = oci.launch(image_id) inst.execute('touch /etc/foobar') snapshot = oci.snapshot(instance.id) inst_prime = oci.launch(snapshot)
