Creating and Deleting RuntimeConfig Resources

This page explains how to create a Config resource. A Config resource is an API object that stores variables as key value pairs. You need a Config resource before you can set and get variables. After creating a Config resource, you can create arbitrary variables that you can use to store data.

To learn more about configurations, variables, and the Runtime Configurator service, see Runtime Configurator Fundamentals.

Before you begin

Creating a config

You can create a Config resource with Deployment Manager, the gcloud command-line tool, or directly using the Runtime Configurator API.

Deployment Manager

To create a config in Deployment Manager, specify the RuntimeConfig type:

runtimeconfig.v1beta1.config

In the properties of the resource, provide the name and other optional properties if desired:

resources:
- name: [CONFIG_NAME]
  type: runtimeconfig.v1beta1.config
  properties:
    config: [CONFIG_NAME]
    description: [DESCRIPTION]

where:

  • [CONFIG_NAME] is the name for this config.
  • [DESCRIPTION] is the description of this config (optional).

gcloud

With the gcloud command-line tool, use the gcloud beta runtime-config configs create command:

gcloud beta runtime-config configs create [CONFIG_NAME] --description [DESCRIPTION]

where:

  • [CONFIG_NAME] is the name for this config.
  • [DESCRIPTION] is the description of this config (optional).

gcloud returns a response like:

Created [https://runtimeconfig.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/configs/[CONFIG_NAME]].

For a complete reference for this gcloud command, read the runtime-config configs create reference documentation.

API

In the REST API, make a POST request to the following URI:

https://runtimeconfig.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/configs/

where [PROJECT_ID] is the project ID for this request. The payload for the request looks like this:

{
   "name": "projects/[PROJECT_ID]/configs/[CONFIG_NAME]",
   "description": "[DESCRIPTION]"

}

where:

  • [PROJECT_ID] is the project ID for this request.
  • [CONFIG_NAME] is the name of this RuntimeConfig.
  • [DESCRIPTION] is the description of this config (optional).

To learn more about this method, read the configs().create documentation.

Deleting a RuntimeConfig resource

Deleting a RuntimeConfig resource deletes all resources contained by that resource, including all variables and waiters.

Deployment Manager

Delete a RuntimeConfig resource that is part of a deployment using one of the following methods:

gcloud

With the gcloud command-line tool, use the gcloud beta runtime-config configs delete command:

gcloud beta runtime-config configs delete [CONFIG_NAME]

where [CONFIG_NAME] is the name of the configuration object.

The gcloud tool returns a response like:

Deleted [https://runtimeconfig.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/configs/[CONFIG_NAME]].

For the full gcloud reference, read the runtime-config configs delete reference documentation.

API

In the REST API, make a DELETE request to the following URI:

https://runtimeconfig.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/[PROJECT_ID]/configs/[CONFIG_NAME]

where:

  • [PROJECT_ID] is the project ID for this request.
  • [CONFIG_NAME] is the name of this configuration.

To learn more about this method, read the configs().delete documentation.
