The documented method to rename an OCI compute instance using the Console appears to be broken


OCI documentation describes how to rename an instance in



  "The policy in Let users launch Compute instances includes the ability to rename an instance.


  Using the Console

  - Open the navigation menu. Under Core Infrastructure, go to Compute and click Instances.

  - Click the instance that you're interested in.

  - Click More Actions, and then click Edit Name.

  - Enter a new name.

  - Click Save Changes.



I used this option many times in the past few months.  However, it appears that the menu option has disappeared.  The "More Actions" menu does not have an "Edit Name" option.

Howdy, Stranger!
