Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

zone

string

The name of the zone for this request.

resourceId

string

The instance name 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).

deviceName

string

The device name of the disk to modify. Make a get() request on the instance to view currently attached disks and device names.

autoDelete

boolean

Whether to auto-delete the disk when the instance is deleted.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

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.
