Use cURL in combination with My Oracle Support

When interacting with Oracle support it is quite common that you would like to, or asked to, upload files to the oracle support site. This can be for example be a logfile or the output from a diagnostic script. Generally most people download the files to their workstations and then upload it the the Oracle support site. however, in some cases you would like to be able to directly upload the file from the server to the Oracle support website.

You can now use cURL to upload files to transport.oracle.com. cURL is commonly available on most Linux and UNIX systems. "cURL is a computer software project providing a library and command-line tool for transferring data using various protocols. The cURL project produces two products, libcurl and cURL. It was first released in 1997."

To upload a file to a specific service request you can use the below command to do so:

curl –T  –u “” ftps://transport.oracle.com/issue//

It is advised to not include the password in your curl command and you will be promoted for it. For more and detailed information you can refer to MOS document: 1547088.2
