Class TextLocator

A locator for text. Indicates a particular part of the text of a request or of an object referenced in the request.

For example, suppose the request field text contains:

text: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

Then the locator:

source: "text" start_position { line: 1 column: 17 } end_position { line: 1 column: 19 }

refers to the part of the text: "fox".

Attributes
NameDescription
strsource
The source of the text. The source may be a field in the request, in which case its format is the format of the google.rpc.BadRequest.FieldViolation.field field in https://cloud.google.com/apis/design/errors#error_details. It may also be be a source other than the request field (e.g. a macro definition referenced in the text of the query), in which case this is the name of the source (e.g. the macro name).
google.cloud.monitoring_v3.types.TextLocator.Positionstart_position
The position of the first byte within the text.
google.cloud.monitoring_v3.types.TextLocator.Positionend_position
The position of the last byte within the text.
google.cloud.monitoring_v3.types.TextLocatornested_locator
If ``source``, ``start_position``, and ``end_position`` describe a call on some object (e.g. a macro in the time series query language text) and a location is to be designated in that object's text, ``nested_locator`` identifies the location within that object.
strnesting_reason
When ``nested_locator`` is set, this field gives the reason for the nesting. Usually, the reason is a macro invocation. In that case, the macro name (including the leading '@') signals the location of the macro call in the text and a macro argument name (including the leading '$') signals the location of the macro argument inside the macro body that got substituted away.
