HTTP request

POST https://compute.googleapis.com/compute/beta/projects/{project}/regions/{region}/forwardingRules/{resourceId}/setLabels

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

region

string

The region for this request.

resourceId

string

Name or id of the resource for this request.

Query parameters

Parameters
requestId

string

An optional request ID to identify requests. Specify a unique request ID so that if you must retry your request, the server will know to ignore the request if it has already been completed.

For example, consider a situation where you make an initial request and the request times out. If you make the request again with the same request ID, the server can check if original operation with the same request ID was received, and if so, will ignore the second request. This prevents clients from accidentally creating duplicate commitments.

The request ID must be a valid UUID with the exception that zero UUID is not supported (00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000).

Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

JSON representation
{
  "labels": {
    string: string,
    ...
  },
  "labelFingerprint": string
}
Fields
labels

map (key: string, value: string)

The labels to set for this resource.

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

labelFingerprint

string (bytes format)

The fingerprint of the previous set of labels for this resource, used to detect conflicts. 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. Make a get() request to the resource to get the latest fingerprint.

A base64-encoded string.

Response body

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

Represents an Operation resource.

Google Compute Engine has three Operation resources:

You can use an operation resource to manage asynchronous API requests. For more information, read Handling API responses.

Operations can be global, regional or zonal.

  • For global operations, use the globalOperations resource.
  • For regional operations, use the regionOperations resource.
  • For zonal operations, use the zonalOperations resource.

For more information, read Global, Regional, and Zonal Resources.
