Change Globally Available Elastic IPs to Regional Elastic IPs (Doc ID 2385021.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 06, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Ravello Cloud Service
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Ravello has enabled local IP pools for all deployment regions to provide better throughput, lower latency, and better resilience. To benefit from this capability, we are requesting users release global pool-based elastic IP addresses, and replace them with elastic IP addresses from the local IP pool of the cloud region in which their applications run.


The following are the steps to do so:
1) Login to your Oracle Ravello account (
2) Browse to Library > Elastic IP Addresses.
3) Filter all Global Pool elastic IPs by pasting "Globally-Available" in the search box on the top right.
4) Elastic IPs that do not have a lock icon are not associated with any application. These IPs can be released by selecting the row (or using the check box for multiple selection) and clicking the Delete button on the upper right-hand side of the table.
5) Elastic IPs that are marked with the lock icon are assigned to a VM in an application.

To release these IPs:
5.1) Copy the application and VM name as they appear in the elastic IP row (for your convenience, the name of applications and VMs which are using global elastic IPs are listed below).
5.2) Go to the Application tab and find the application.
5.3) Open the application and locate the VM.
5.4) Go to the VM NICs tab on the property pane at the right.
5.5) Find the interface which is using the elastic IP address and click Open.
5.6) If an elastic IP is not required for this interface, select Public IP or Port Forwarding.
5.7) If an elastic IP is required, click Select. In the popup window, select an existing elastic IP or create a new one in the same region in which the application is deployed. (e.g: if the application is published on US-East-1, select/create an EIP address in location US East 1)
5.8) Save your changes and click "Update" (even if the application is stopped).

6) Once all Globally-Available IPs are replaced, repeat steps 2 to 4 to release the IPs.


What happens if this notice is not followed:

On the decommissioning date mentioned above, all of the listed IPs will be removed automatically from your Library and will be switched to public "regional" IPs for all listed applications. Please note, this action cannot be undone and the decommissioned IPs will not be restored.
