Dialogflow provides data residency to keep your data-at-rest. physically within a geographical region or location. When a region is specified, your data-at-rest is not replicated outside the region. Pricing is the same for all regions.
Regions are used for the following reasons:
- Your system may have regulatory or policy requirements that govern where your data must reside.
- Your network latencies may be improved when the data is in the same
region as your customers.
For example, If UK customers use
europe-west2, they can expect better latency.
All Dialogflow developer user and end-user data is included in data-at-rest. For example:
- All agent resources set with console or API (intents, entities, etc.)
- All agent settings set with console or API
- Query history
- Validation results
- Model creation tasks
- Training tasks
- Long-running operation tasks
Dialogflow provides the following regions:
Select a region with the console
The top left area of the Dialogflow ES Console
has a drop-down for region selection.
Every agent has an immutable region that is specified upon creation.
When you select a region from the console,
you can only list or create agents for the selected region.
The default region is
Select a region with the API
If your agent was created in a non-default region, you must specify that region when calling the API for either design-time or runtime requests.
To provide a region, you supply a
location parameter to API requests.
For REST calls, do both of the following:
- Provide the
locationURL path parameter.
- Use the location-specific hostname of the form
[location]-dialogflow.googleapis.com. For example:
asia-northeast1-dialogflow.googleapis.com. If the location specified in the hostname does not match the location specified in the URL path, the request will be rejected.
For client libraries, see the client library documentation for a location configuration option.
When a non-default region is selected in the Dialogflow Console, the following features are not available:
- Knowledge Connectors
- Prebuilt Agents
- Small Talk
- Stackdriver Logging
