Code sample

Go

Before trying this sample, follow the Go setup instructions in the Compute Engine quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Compute Engine Go API reference documentation.

import (
	"context"
	"fmt"
	"io"

	compute "cloud.google.com/go/compute/apiv1"
	"google.golang.org/api/iterator"
	computepb "google.golang.org/genproto/googleapis/cloud/compute/v1"
)

// listInstanceTemplates prints a list of InstanceTemplate objects available in a project.
func listInstanceTemplates(w io.Writer, projectID string) error {
	// projectID := "your_project_id"

	ctx := context.Background()
	instanceTemplatesClient, err := compute.NewInstanceTemplatesRESTClient(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("NewInstanceTemplatesRESTClient: %v", err)
	}
	defer instanceTemplatesClient.Close()

	req := &computepb.ListInstanceTemplatesRequest{
		Project: projectID,
	}

	it := instanceTemplatesClient.List(ctx, req)
	for {
		instance, err := it.Next()
		if err == iterator.Done {
			break
		}
		if err != nil {
			return err
		}
		fmt.Fprintf(w, "- %s %s\n", instance.GetName(), instance.GetProperties().GetMachineType())
	}

	return nil
}

Java

Before trying this sample, follow the Java setup instructions in the Compute Engine quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Compute Engine Java API reference documentation.


import com.google.cloud.compute.v1.InstanceTemplate;
import com.google.cloud.compute.v1.InstanceTemplatesClient;
import com.google.cloud.compute.v1.InstanceTemplatesClient.ListPagedResponse;
import java.io.IOException;

public class ListInstanceTemplates {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    // projectId: project ID or project number of the Cloud project you use.
    String projectId = "your-project-id";
    listInstanceTemplates(projectId);
  }

  // Get a list of InstanceTemplate objects available in a project.
  public static ListPagedResponse listInstanceTemplates(String projectId) throws IOException {
    try (InstanceTemplatesClient instanceTemplatesClient = InstanceTemplatesClient.create()) {
      int count = 0;
      System.out.println("Listing instance templates...");
      ListPagedResponse templates = instanceTemplatesClient.list(projectId);
      for (InstanceTemplate instanceTemplate : templates.iterateAll()) {
        System.out.printf("%s. %s%n", ++count, instanceTemplate.getName());
      }
      return templates;
    }
  }
}

Node.js

Before trying this sample, follow the Node.js setup instructions in the Compute Engine quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Compute Engine Node.js API reference documentation.

/**
 * TODO(developer): Uncomment and replace these variables before running the sample.
 */
// const projectId = 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID';

const compute = require('@google-cloud/compute');

// Print a list of instance template objects available in a project.
async function listInstanceTemplates() {
  const instanceTemplatesClient = new compute.InstanceTemplatesClient();

  const instanceTemplates = instanceTemplatesClient.listAsync({
    project: projectId,
  });

  for await (const instanceTemplate of instanceTemplates) {
    console.log(` - ${instanceTemplate.name}`);
  }
}

listInstanceTemplates();

Python

Before trying this sample, follow the Python setup instructions in the Compute Engine quickstart using client libraries. For more information, see the Compute Engine Python API reference documentation.

from typing import Iterable

from google.cloud import compute_v1


def list_instance_templates(project_id: str) -> Iterable[compute_v1.InstanceTemplate]:

    Get a list of InstanceTemplate objects available in a project.

    Args:
