NAME
gcloud beta monitoring channels create - create a new notification channel
SYNOPSIS
gcloud beta monitoring channels create [--channel-content=CHANNEL_CONTENT     | --channel-content-from-file=CHANNEL_CONTENT_FROM_FILE] [--channel-labels=[KEY=VALUE,…] --description=DESCRIPTION --display-name=DISPLAY_NAME --no-enabled --type=TYPE --user-labels=[KEY=VALUE,…]] [GCLOUD_WIDE_FLAG]
DESCRIPTION
(BETA) Creates a new notification channel. A channel can be specified as JSON/YAML passed in as a string through the --channel-content flag or as a file through the --channel-content-from-file flag. A basic channel can also be specified through command line flags. If a channel is specified through --channel-content or --channel-content-from-file, and additional flags are supplied, the flags will override the given channel's settings.

For information about the JSON/YAML format of a notification channel: https://cloud.google.com/monitoring/api/ref_v3/rest/v3/projects.notificationChannels

Additional documentation can for this operation can be found at: https://cloud.google.com/monitoring/alerts/using-channels-api

EXAMPLES
The following commands setup both email and SMS notification channels for the team lead. Note that the display name and description focus on the purpose/semantics of the channel rather than its destination. This is a best-practice that facilitates swapping/updating notification channels in-place (such as when users change teams, projects, roles, companies, etc.) with minimal impact to the alerting policies that reference the existing channels. It is also a best practice to supply at least two channels of different types for a given person.
