Search for projects that the caller has both resourcemanager.projects.get permission on, and also satisfy the specified query.

This method returns projects in an unspecified order.

This method is eventually consistent with project mutations; this means that a newly created project may not appear in the results or recent updates to an existing project may not be reflected in the results. To retrieve the latest state of a project, use the projects.get method.

HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Query parameters



Optional. A query string for searching for projects that the caller has resourcemanager.projects.get permission to. If multiple fields are included in the query, the it will return results that match any of the fields. Some eligible fields are:

labels.color:red The project's label color has the value red.
labels.color:red labels.size:big The project's label color has the value red and its label size has the value big.

If no query is specified, the call will return projects for which the user has the resourcemanager.projects.get permission.



Optional. A pagination token returned from a previous call to projects.list that indicates from where listing should continue.



Optional. The maximum number of projects to return in the response. The server can return fewer projects than requested. If unspecified, server picks an appropriate default.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains data with the following structure:

A page of the response received from the method.

A paginated response where more pages are available has nextPageToken set. This token can be used in a subsequent request to retrieve the next request page.

JSON representation
  "projects": [
      object (Project)
  "nextPageToken": string

object (Project)

The list of Projects that matched the list filter query. This list can be paginated.



Pagination token.

If the result set is too large to fit in a single response, this token is returned. It encodes the position of the current result cursor. Feeding this value into a new list request with the pageToken parameter gives the next page of the results.

When nextPageToken is not filled in, there is no next page and the list returned is the last page in the result set.

Pagination tokens have a limited lifetime.
