Method: regionDisks.list

Retrieves the list of persistent disks contained within the specified region.

HTTP request

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

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:

A list of Disk resources.

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[].sizeGb

string (int64 format)

Size of the persistent disk, specified in GB. You can specify this field when creating a persistent disk using the sourceImage or sourceSnapshot parameter, or specify it alone to create an empty persistent disk.

If you specify this field along with sourceImage or sourceSnapshot, the value of sizeGb must not be less than the size of the sourceImage or the size of the snapshot. Acceptable values are 1 to 65536, inclusive.

items[].zone

string

[Output Only] URL of the zone where the disk resides. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. It is not settable as a field in the request body.

items[].status

enum

[Output Only] The status of disk creation.

items[].sourceSnapshot

string

The source snapshot used to create this disk. You can provide this as a partial or full URL to the resource. For example, the following are valid values:

items[].sourceSnapshotId

string

[Output Only] The unique ID of the snapshot used to create this disk. This value identifies the exact snapshot that was used to create this persistent disk. For example, if you created the persistent disk from a snapshot that was later deleted and recreated under the same name, the source snapshot ID would identify the exact version of the snapshot that was used.

items[].options

string

Internal use only.

items[].selfLink

string

[Output Only] Server-defined fully-qualified URL for this resource.

items[].sourceImage

string

The source image used to create this disk. If the source image is deleted, this field will not be set.

To create a disk with one of the public operating system images, specify the image by its family name. For example, specify family/debian-9 to use the latest Debian 9 image:

projects/debian-cloud/global/images/family/debian-9

Alternatively, use a specific version of a public operating system image:

projects/debian-cloud/global/images/debian-9-stretch-vYYYYMMDD

To create a disk with a custom image that you created, specify the image name in the following format:

global/images/my-custom-image

You can also specify a custom image by its image family, which returns the latest version of the image in that family. Replace the image name with family/family-name:

global/images/family/my-image-family

items[].sourceImageId

string

[Output Only] The ID value of the image used to create this disk. This value identifies the exact image that was used to create this persistent disk. For example, if you created the persistent disk from an image that was later deleted and recreated under the same name, the source image ID would identify the exact version of the image that was used.

items[].storageType

enum

[Deprecated] Storage type of the persistent disk.

items[].type

string

URL of the disk type resource describing which disk type to use to create the disk. Provide this when creating the disk. For example: project/zones/zone/diskTypes/pd-standard or pd-ssd

items[].diskEncryptionKey

object

Encrypts the disk using a customer-supplied encryption key.

After you encrypt a disk with a customer-supplied key, you must provide the same key if you use the disk later (e.g. to create a disk snapshot or an image, or to attach the disk to a virtual machine).

Customer-supplied encryption keys do not protect access to metadata of the disk.

If you do not provide an encryption key when creating the disk, then the disk will be encrypted using an automatically generated key and you do not need to provide a key to use the disk later.
