Getting the service name and configuration ID

To deploy your service configuration, you run the gcloud endpoints services deploy command. The first time you deploy your service configuration, the gcloud command calls a Service Management API to create a managed service by using the name that you specified in the name field of your service configuration YAML file. Service Management automatically assigns a configuration ID, which consists of a date stamp followed by a revision number. For example: 2017-02-13r0

If you deploy your service configuration again on the same day, Service Management increments the revision number in the configuration ID. If you deploy your service configuration again on another day, Service Management assigns a new date stamp to the configuration ID and resets the revision number to 0.

Endpoints uses Service Management to store service configurations. Service Management stores only the latest 100 service configurations.

This page describes how to view the name of your service and configuration IDs.

Google Cloud console

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Endpoints > Services page for your project.

    Go to the Endpoints Services page

  2. If you have more than one API, select an API from the list.
  3. Click the Deployment history tab.
  4. The service name is displayed between the API name and the tabs, near the top-left side of the page. In the Service configuration deployments list, the configuration ID is displayed along with the date and the email address of the principal who deployed the configuration. The Service configuration deployments list displays the latest 100 configuration deployments. The most recent configuration is displayed at the top of the list.


  1. Enter the following to display the project IDs for your Google Cloud projects:
    gcloud projects list
  2. Using the applicable project ID from the previous step, set the default project to the one that your API is in:
    gcloud config set project YOUR_PROJECT_ID
  3. Get a list of services in your project:
    gcloud endpoints services list
  4. Using the applicable service name from the previous step, get a list of configuration IDs for the service:
    gcloud endpoints configs list --service=YOUR_SERVICE_NAME

For more information on the preceding commands, see the gcloud reference.
