Uploading files to MOS

I want to share a very useful tip on how to upload file to MOS.

I think most people use the browser interface to upload to support.oracle.com website.

But if you want to upload the file from the Linux host itself or file is larger then 2Gb, go with curl instead.

Sintaxe is:

curl -T <file> -u <metalink_id> https://transport.oracle.com/upload/issue/<SR_number>/

example:

curl -T /var/tmp/sosreport-c0329121-3-23234203192-2020-06-02-edpizve.tar.xz -u rogerio.eguchi@velocitycloud.com https://transport.oracle.com/upload/issue/3-23223232323/

You just need to inform your password.

Relying on this approach will save you time as you don’t have to download the file(s) to the laptop then upload to the Oracle Support.

Easier, right ?
