GlobalOperations

Represents a GlobalOperations resource. Global operations are any operations that are performed on global resources, such as images, networks, firewalls, and snapshots. For example, inserting an image is considered a global operation because you are inserting a global resource. Inserting an instance is considered a per-zone operation, because you are inserting a per-zone resource.

For a list of methods for this resource, see the end of this page.

Property name Value Description Notes
clientOperationId string [Output Only] Reserved for future use.
creationTimestamp string [Deprecated] This field is deprecated.
description string [Output Only] A textual description of the operation, which is set when the operation is created.
endTime string [Output Only] The time that this operation was completed. This value is in RFC3339 text format.
error object [Output Only] If errors are generated during processing of the operation, this field will be populated.
error.errors[] list [Output Only] The array of errors encountered while processing this operation.
error.errors[].code string [Output Only] The error type identifier for this error.
error.errors[].location string [Output Only] Indicates the field in the request that caused the error. This property is optional.
error.errors[].message string [Output Only] An optional, human-readable error message.
httpErrorMessage string [Output Only] If the operation fails, this field contains the HTTP error message that was returned, such as NOT FOUND.
httpErrorStatusCode integer [Output Only] If the operation fails, this field contains the HTTP error status code that was returned. For example, a 404 means the resource was not found.
id unsigned long [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
insertTime string [Output Only] The time that this operation was requested. This value is in RFC3339 text format.
kind string [Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#operation for Operation resources.
name string [Output Only] Name of the resource.
operationType string [Output Only] The type of operation, such as insert, update, or delete, and so on.
progress integer [Output Only] An optional progress indicator that ranges from 0 to 100. There is no requirement that this be linear or support any granularity of operations. This should not be used to guess when the operation will be complete. This number should monotonically increase as the operation progresses.
region string [Output Only] The URL of the region where the operation resides. Only available when performing regional operations.
startTime string [Output Only] The time that this operation was started by the server. This value is in RFC3339 text format.
status string [Output Only] The status of the operation, which can be one of the following: PENDING, RUNNING, or DONE.
statusMessage string [Output Only] An optional textual description of the current status of the operation.
targetId unsigned long [Output Only] The unique target ID, which identifies a specific incarnation of the target resource.
user string [Output Only] User who requested the operation, for example: user@example.com.
warnings[] list [Output Only] If warning messages are generated during processing of the operation, this field will be populated.
warnings[].code string [Output Only] A warning code, if applicable. For example, Compute Engine returns NO_RESULTS_ON_PAGE if there are no results in the response.
warnings[].data[] list [Output Only] Metadata about this warning in key: value format. For example:
"data": [ { "key": "scope", "value": "zones/us-east1-d" }
warnings[].data[].key string [Output Only] A key that provides more detail on the warning being returned. For example, for warnings where there are no results in a list request for a particular zone, this key might be scope and the key value might be the zone name. Other examples might be a key indicating a deprecated resource and a suggested replacement, or a warning about invalid network settings (for example, if an instance attempts to perform IP forwarding but is not enabled for IP forwarding).
warnings[].data[].value string [Output Only] A warning data value corresponding to the key.
warnings[].message string [Output Only] A human-readable description of the warning code.
zone string [Output Only] The URL of the zone where the operation resides. Only available when performing per-zone operations.
