  • The AWS Compatibility Matrix page is more comprehensive:

    • Previously, this page listed the correspondences of API methods only in the AWS → OUTSCALE direction, which meant that OUTSCALE API methods that do not have an AWS equivalent were not mentioned. Now, this page mentions all methods including those that are exclusive to the OUTSCALE API.

    • Also, you can now sort the table by clicking the column headers.

  • The EIM Policy Generator now offers a second output format:

    • In addition to the raw JSON format, which can be used with Cockpit, the generated policy is also presented as a JSON string, which is the format necessary if you want to paste this result in the parameter of an OSC CLI command.

March 14, 2024

  • The visual theme of the documentation website has been updated, in order to match the colors of the other OUTSCALE websites.

February 19, 2024

  • Wait conditions are now documented in the OUTSCALE Object Storage (OOS) section: Using Wait Conditions.

  • End of Life (EOL) of Cockpit v1. As of this date, Cockpit v1 is no longer available in any of our Regions. For more information, see End-of-Life Policy.

November 30, 2023

  • The Object Lock feature is now available in the OUTSCALE Object Storage (OOS) documentation. For more information, see Managing Object Lock.

  • End of Support and Maintenance (EOSM) of Cockpit v1. As of this date, Cockpit v1 is no longer fixed nor supported. For more information, see End-of-Life Policy.

October 5, 2023

  • In the User Guide, the procedure pages now include descriptions and examples for OSC CLI, instead of only linking to sections of the OUTSCALE API documentation. For example, see Creating VMs > Creating VMs Using OSC CLI.

  • These OSC CLI descriptions and examples are the same in the User Guide and the OUTSCALE API documentation. Therefore, you can choose to use either part of the site depending on your browsing preference.

September 20, 2023

  • Cockpit v2 is now out of beta following the deployment of version 2.9:

    • As a consequence, the User Guide will now primarily use the terms used by Cockpit v2, which are also the terms of the OUTSCALE API (for example, resources are called virtual machines, Nets, etc.), rather than the legacy AWS terminology that was previously used (for example, instances, VPCs, etc.). Tooltips remain available on mouse hover to facilitate the transition. This terminology change also applies to page titles (for example, About Instances now redirects to About VMs).

    • For more information about version 2.9 of Cockpit v2, see the Cockpit v2 Release Notes (Old Page).

August 30, 2023

  • The OUTSCALE API documentation now includes fully functional code samples:

    • Each of the 180 available methods features at least one code sample per programming language.

    • Some of the methods feature multiple code samples per programming language. For example, the CreateImage method features four different code samples, each one for a different use case in terms of request parameters.

    • For convenience, two copy buttons appear next to each code sample on mouse hover:

      • copy to clipboard: The first button copies the code as is, therefore as a multiline string.

      • copy to clipboard single line: The second button copies the code formatted as a single-line command (where applicable).

  • The search feature of the User Guide has been improved:

    • When using the search bar at the top right, you can now view the results in a distinct page and not only in the dropdown list.

    • You can now add the public documentation to your browser’s search engines. Doing so enables you to quickly search the documentation website by using a keyword shortcut. For example, you can type osc vm types in your URL bar to directly launch a search for "vm types" in the documentation, even if you are not already on the website. For more information, see Searching the Public Documentation From Your URL Bar.

  • You can now export any page of the User Guide to the PDF format, by using the button located in the right-side column of each page.

June 27, 2023

  • The API documentations have been updated:

    • The Authentication sections have been rewritten.

    • Code samples for the login/password authentication are now included.
      Note that the login/password authentication is only supported for certain actions, in the OUTSCALE API (for example, ReadAccessKeys) and in the ICU API (for example, ListAccessKeys).

    • Code samples in JavaScript are now included for the OUTSCALE API.
      They are based on the OUTSCALE SDK for TypeScript/JavaScript.

    • You can now switch between the programming languages by using the buttons above each code sample, as well as in the top left corner.

June 23, 2023

  • The AWS Compatibility Matrix has been updated. This page lists the correspondences between AWS-Compliant API methods and OUTSCALE API methods.
