Method: instanceGroupManagers.listManagedInstances

Lists all of the instances in the managed instance group. Each instance in the list has a currentAction, which indicates the action that the managed instance group is performing on the instance. For example, if the group is still creating an instance, the currentAction is CREATING. If a previous action failed, the list displays the errors for that failed action. The orderBy query parameter is not supported.

HTTP request

POST https://compute.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/{project}/zones/{zone}/instanceGroupManagers/{resourceId}/listManagedInstances

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

zone

string

The name of the zone where the managed instance group is located.

resourceId

string

The name of the managed instance group.

Authorization requires the following IAM permission on the specified resource instanceGroupManager:

  • compute.instanceGroupManagers.get

Query parameters

Parameters
maxResults

integer (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.

returnPartialSuccess

boolean

Opt-in for partial success behavior which provides partial results in case of failure. The default value is false.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

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

Fields
managedInstances[]

object

[Output Only] The list of instances in the managed instance group.

managedInstances[].instance

string

[Output Only] The URL of the instance. The URL can exist even if the instance has not yet been created.

managedInstances[].id

string (uint64 format)

[Output only] The unique identifier for this resource. This field is empty when instance does not exist.

managedInstances[].instanceStatus

enum

[Output Only] The status of the instance. This field is empty when the instance does not exist.

managedInstances[].version

object

[Output Only] Intended version of this instance.

managedInstances[].version.name

string

[Output Only] Name of the version.

managedInstances[].version.instanceTemplate

string

[Output Only] The intended template of the instance. This field is empty when currentAction is one of { DELETING, ABANDONING }.

managedInstances[].preservedStateFromPolicy

object

[Output Only] Preserved state generated based on stateful policy for this instance.

managedInstances[].preservedStateFromPolicy.disks[]

map (key: string, value: object)

Preserved disks defined for this instance. This map is keyed with the device names of the disks.

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