Method: projects.create

Request that a new Project be created. The result is an Operation which can be used to track the creation process. It is automatically deleted after a few hours, so there is no need to call operations.delete.

Our SLO permits Project creation to take up to 30 seconds at the 90th percentile. As of 2016-08-29, we are observing 6 seconds 50th percentile latency. 95th percentile latency is around 11 seconds. We recommend polling at the 5th second with an exponential backoff.

Authorization requires the Google IAM permission resourcemanager.projects.create on the specified parent for the new project. The parent is identified by a specified ResourceId, which must include both an ID and a type, such as organization.

This method does not associate the new project with a billing account. You can set or update the billing account associated with a project using the projects.updateBillingInfo method.
