--project PROJECT

The Google Cloud Platform project name to use for this invocation.

--verbosity {debug,info,warning,error,critical,none}

Override the default output verbosity for this command.

--zone ZONE

The zone containing the instance. If not specified, you may be prompted to select a zone.

To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:

$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE

A list of zones can be fetched by running:

To unset the property, run:

$ gcloud config unset compute/zone

Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.
