Service Health API C++ Client Library

An idiomatic C++ client library for the Service Health API, a service that helps you gain visibility into disruptive events impacting Google Cloud products.

While this library is GA, please note that the Google Cloud C++ client libraries do not follow Semantic Versioning.


The following shows the code that you'll run in the google/cloud/servicehealth/quickstart/ directory, which should give you a taste of the Service Health API C++ client library API.

#include "google/cloud/servicehealth/v1/service_health_client.h"
#include "google/cloud/location.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) try {
  if (argc != 2) {
    std::cerr << "Usage: " << argv[0] << " project-id\n";
    return 1;

  auto const location = google::cloud::Location(argv[1], "global");

  namespace servicehealth = ::google::cloud::servicehealth_v1;
  auto client = servicehealth::ServiceHealthClient(

  for (auto e : client.ListEvents(location.FullName())) {
    if (!e) throw std::move(e).status();
    std::cout << e->DebugString() << "\n";

  return 0;
} catch (google::cloud::Status const& status) {
  std::cerr << "google::cloud::Status thrown: " << status << "\n";
  return 1;

Main classes

The main class in this library is servicehealth_v1::ServiceHealthClient. All RPCs are exposed as member functions of this class. Other classes provide helpers, configuration parameters, and infrastructure to mock servicehealth_v1::ServiceHealthClient when testing your application.
