For Frankfurt region, Instance OCID looks like below.

ocid1.instance.oc1.eu-frankfurt-1.abtheljt2tihcyimx3skqhargaklttvljkiueoiqtzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

For Ashburn region, Instance OCID looks like below.

ocid1.instance.oc1.iad.abuwcljtrfquxhtfl3zbwiuwuwuvhtugzxlpcpuadxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If same format is maintained, it will be easy to get region key.

Now I need to check both Region Key List and Region Name List for getting the region Name for ashburn region instance.

Also, what is the format for other region instances ? Which is used in the instance OCID (Region Name or Region Key) ? 

Region Name Region Location Region Key Availability Domains
ap-seoul-1 Seoul, South Korea ICN 1
ap-tokyo-1

Howdy, Stranger!
