Method: addresses.list

Retrieves a list of addresses contained within the specified region.

HTTP request

GET https://www.googleapis.com/compute/beta/projects/{project}/regions/{region}/addresses

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

region

string

Name of the region for this request.

Query parameters

Parameters
maxResults

number (uint32 format)

The maximum number of results per page that should be returned. If the number of available results is larger than maxResults, Compute Engine returns a nextPageToken that can be used to get the next page of results in subsequent list requests. Acceptable values are 0 to 500, inclusive. (Default: 500)

pageToken

string

Specifies a page token to use. Set pageToken to the nextPageToken returned by a previous list request to get the next page of results.

filter

string

A filter expression that filters resources listed in the response. The expression must specify the field name, a comparison operator, and the value that you want to use for filtering. The value must be a string, a number, or a boolean. The comparison operator must be either =, !=, >, or <.

For example, if you are filtering Compute Engine instances, you can exclude instances named example-instance by specifying name != example-instance.

You can also filter nested fields. For example, you could specify scheduling.automaticRestart = false to include instances only if they are not scheduled for automatic restarts. You can use filtering on nested fields to filter based on resource labels.

To filter on multiple expressions, provide each separate expression within parentheses. For example, (scheduling.automaticRestart = true) (cpuPlatform = "Intel Skylake"). By default, each expression is an AND expression. However, you can include AND and OR expressions explicitly. For example, (cpuPlatform = "Intel Skylake") OR (cpuPlatform = "Intel Broadwell") AND (scheduling.automaticRestart = true).

orderBy

string

Sorts list results by a certain order. By default, results are returned in alphanumerical order based on the resource name.

You can also sort results in descending order based on the creation timestamp using orderBy="creationTimestamp desc". This sorts results based on the creationTimestamp field in reverse chronological order (newest result first). Use this to sort resources like operations so that the newest operation is returned first.

Currently, only sorting by name or creationTimestamp desc is supported.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains data with the following structure:

Contains a list of addresses.

Fields
id

string

[Output Only] Unique identifier for the resource; defined by the server.

items[]

object

A list of Address resources.

items[].id

string (fixed64 format)

[Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.

items[].creationTimestamp

string

[Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.

items[].name

string

Name of the resource. Provided by the client when the resource is created. The name must be 1-63 characters long, and comply with RFC1035. Specifically, the name must be 1-63 characters long and match the regular expression [a-z]([-a-z0-9]*[a-z0-9])? which means the first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit, except the last character, which cannot be a dash.

items[].description

string

An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.

items[].address

string

The static IP address represented by this resource.

items[].prefixLength

number

The prefix length if the resource reprensents an IP range.

items[].status

enum

[Output Only] The status of the address, which can be one of RESERVING, RESERVED, or IN_USE. An address that is RESERVING is currently in the process of being reserved. A RESERVED address is currently reserved and available to use. An IN_USE address is currently being used by another resource and is not available.

items[].region

string

[Output Only] URL of the region where the regional address resides. This field is not applicable to global addresses. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. You cannot set this field in the request body.

items[].selfLink

string

[Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.

items[].users[]

string

[Output Only] The URLs of the resources that are using this address.

items[].networkTier

enum

This signifies the networking tier used for configuring this Address and can only take the following values: PREMIUM, STANDARD. Global forwarding rules can only be Premium Tier. Regional forwarding rules can be either Premium or Standard Tier. Standard Tier addresses applied to regional forwarding rules can be used with any external load balancer. Regional forwarding rules in Premium Tier can only be used with a Network load balancer.

If this field is not specified, it is assumed to be PREMIUM.

items[].labels

map (key: string, value: string)

Labels to apply to this Address resource. These can be later modified by the setLabels method. Each label key/value must comply with RFC1035. Label values may be empty.

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

items[].labelFingerprint

string (bytes format)

A fingerprint for the labels being applied to this Address, which is essentially a hash of the labels set used for optimistic locking. The fingerprint is initially generated by Compute Engine and changes after every request to modify or update labels. You must always provide an up-to-date fingerprint hash in order to update or change labels, otherwise the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet.

To see the latest fingerprint, make a get() request to retrieve an Address.

A base64-encoded string.

items[].ipVersion

enum

The IP Version that will be used by this address. Valid options are IPV4 or IPV6. This can only be specified for a global address.

items[].addressType

enum

The type of address to reserve, either INTERNAL or EXTERNAL. If unspecified, defaults to EXTERNAL.

items[].purpose

enum

The purpose of resource, only used with INTERNAL type.

items[].subnetwork

string

The URL of the subnetwork in which to reserve the address. If an IP address is specified, it must be within the subnetwork's IP range. This field can only be used with INTERNAL type with GCE_ENDPOINT/DNS_RESOLVER purposes.

items[].network

string

The URL of the network in which to reserve the address. This field can only be used with INTERNAL type with VPC_PEERING purpose.

items[].kind

string

[Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#address for addresses.

nextPageToken

string

[Output Only] This token allows you to get the next page of results for list requests. If the number of results is larger than maxResults, use the nextPageToken as a value for the query parameter pageToken in the next list request. Subsequent list requests will have their own nextPageToken to continue paging through the results.

warning

object

[Output Only] Informational warning message.

warning.code

enum

[Output Only] A warning code, if applicable. For example, Compute Engine returns NO_RESULTS_ON_PAGE if there are no results in the response.

warning.message

string

[Output Only] A human-readable description of the warning code.

warning.data[]

object

[Output Only] Metadata about this warning in key: value format. For example:

"data": [  {  "key": "scope",  "value": "zones/us-east1-d"  }

warning.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).

warning.data[].value

string

[Output Only] A warning data value corresponding to the key.

kind

string

[Output Only] Type of resource. Always compute#addressList for lists of addresses.
