REST Resource: billingAccounts.budgets

Resource: Budget

A budget is a plan that describes what you expect to spend on Cloud projects, plus the rules to execute as spend is tracked against that plan, (for example, send an alert when 90% of the target spend is met). The budget time period is configurable, with options such as month (default), quarter, year, or custom time period.

Fields
projects[]

string

Optional. A set of projects of the form projects/{project}, specifying that usage from only this set of projects should be included in the budget. If omitted, the report will include all usage for the billing account, regardless of which project the usage occurred on. Only zero or one project can be specified currently.

creditTypes[]

string

Optional. If Filter.credit_types_treatment is INCLUDE_SPECIFIED_CREDITS, this is a list of credit types to be subtracted from gross cost to determine the spend for threshold calculations. See a list of acceptable credit type values.

labels

map (key: string, value: array (ListValue format))

Optional. A single label and value pair specifying that usage from only this set of labeled resources should be included in the budget. Currently, multiple entries or multiple values per entry are not allowed. If omitted, the report will include all labeled and unlabeled usage.

An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

Union field usage_period. Multiple options to choose the budget's time period, specifying that only usage that occurs during this time period should be included in the budget. If not set, the usage_period defaults to CalendarPeriod.MONTH. usage_period can be only one of the following:
calendarPeriod

enum (CalendarPeriod)

Optional. Specifies to track usage for recurring calendar period. For example, assume that CalendarPeriod.QUARTER is set. The budget will track usage from April 1 to June 30, when the current calendar month is April, May, June. After that, it will track usage from July 1 to September 30 when the current calendar month is July, August, September, so on.

customPeriod

object (CustomPeriod)

Optional. Specifies to track usage from any start date (required) to any end date (optional). This time period is static, it does not recur.

CreditTypesTreatment

Specifies how credits are applied when determining the spend for threshold calculations. Budgets track the total cost minus any applicable selected credits. See the documentation for a list of credit types.

Enums
CREDIT_TYPES_TREATMENT_UNSPECIFIED
INCLUDE_ALL_CREDITS All types of credit are subtracted from the gross cost to determine the spend for threshold calculations.
EXCLUDE_ALL_CREDITS All types of credit are added to the net cost to determine the spend for threshold calculations.
INCLUDE_SPECIFIED_CREDITS Credit types specified in the creditTypes field are subtracted from the gross cost to determine the spend for threshold calculations.

CalendarPeriod

A CalendarPeriod represents the abstract concept of a time period that has a canonical start. Grammatically, "the start of the current CalendarPeriod". All calendar times begin at 12 AM US and Canadian Pacific Time (UTC-8).

Enums
CALENDAR_PERIOD_UNSPECIFIED
MONTH A month. Month starts on the first day of each month, such as January 1, February 1, March 1, and so on.
QUARTER A quarter. Quarters start on dates January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 of each year.
YEAR A year. Year starts on January 1.

CustomPeriod

All date times begin at 12 AM US and Canadian Pacific Time (UTC-8).

JSON representation
{
  "startDate": {
    object (Date)
  },
  "endDate": {
    object (Date)
  }
}
Fields
startDate

object (Date)

Required. The start date must be after January 1, 2017.

endDate

object (Date)

Optional. The end date of the time period. Budgets with elapsed end date won't be processed. If unset, specifies to track all usage incurred since the startDate.

BudgetAmount

The budgeted amount for each usage period.

JSON representation
{

  // Union field budget_amount can be only one of the following:
  "specifiedAmount": {
    object (Money)
  },
  "lastPeriodAmount": {
    object (LastPeriodAmount)
  }
  // End of list of possible types for union field budget_amount.
}
Fields
Union field budget_amount. Specification for what amount to use as the budget. budget_amount can be only one of the following:
specifiedAmount

object (Money)

A specified amount to use as the budget. currencyCode is optional. If specified when creating a budget, it must match the currency of the billing account. If specified when updating a budget, it must match the currencyCode of the existing budget. The currencyCode is provided on output.

lastPeriodAmount

object (LastPeriodAmount)

Use the last period's actual spend as the budget for the present period. LastPeriodAmount can only be set when the budget's time period is a Filter.calendar_period. It cannot be set in combination with Filter.custom_period.

LastPeriodAmount

Describes a budget amount targeted to the last Filter.calendar_period spend. At this time, the amount is automatically 100% of the last calendar period's spend; that is, there are no other options yet. Future configuration options will be described here (for example, configuring a percentage of last period's spend). LastPeriodAmount cannot be set for a budget configured with a Filter.custom_period.

ThresholdRule

ThresholdRule contains the definition of a threshold. Threshold rules define the triggering events used to generate a budget notification email. When a threshold is crossed (spend exceeds the specified percentages of the budget), budget alert emails are sent to the email recipients you specify in the NotificationsRule.

Threshold rules also affect the fields included in the JSON data object sent to a Pub/Sub topic.

Threshold rules are required if using email notifications.

Threshold rules are optional if only setting a pubsubTopic NotificationsRule, unless you want your JSON data object to include data about the thresholds you set.

For more information, see set budget threshold rules and actions.

JSON representation
{
  "thresholdPercent": number,
  "spendBasis": enum (Basis)
}
Fields
thresholdPercent

number

Required. Send an alert when this threshold is exceeded. This is a 1.0-based percentage, so 0.5 = 50%. Validation: non-negative number.

spendBasis

enum (Basis)

Optional. The type of basis used to determine if spend has passed the threshold. Behavior defaults to CURRENT_SPEND if not set.

Basis

The type of basis used to determine if spend has passed the threshold.

Enums
BASIS_UNSPECIFIED Unspecified threshold basis.
CURRENT_SPEND Use current spend as the basis for comparison against the threshold.
FORECASTED_SPEND Use forecasted spend for the period as the basis for comparison against the threshold. FORECASTED_SPEND can only be set when the budget's time period is a Filter.calendar_period. It cannot be set in combination with Filter.custom_period.

AllUpdatesRule

AllUpdatesRule defines notifications that are sent based on budget spend and thresholds.

JSON representation
{
  "pubsubTopic": string,
  "schemaVersion": string,
  "monitoringNotificationChannels": [
    string
  ],
  "disableDefaultIamRecipients": boolean
}
Fields
pubsubTopic

string

Optional. The name of the Pub/Sub topic where budget related messages will be published, in the form projects/{project_id}/topics/{topic_id}. Updates are sent at regular intervals to the topic. The topic needs to be created before the budget is created; see https://cloud.google.com/billing/docs/how-to/budgets-programmatic-notifications for more details. Caller is expected to have pubsub.topics.setIamPolicy permission on the topic when it's set for a budget, otherwise, the API call will fail with PERMISSION_DENIED.

schemaVersion

string

Optional. Required when AllUpdatesRule.pubsub_topic is set. The schema version of the notification sent to AllUpdatesRule.pubsub_topic. Only "1.0" is accepted.
