- gcloud compute instances set-disk-auto-delete - set auto-delete behavior for disks
$gcloud compute instances set-disk-auto-deleteis used to configure the auto-delete behavior for disks attached to Compute Engine virtual machines. When auto-delete is on, the persistent disk is deleted when the instance it is attached to is deleted.
To enable auto-delete for a disk named 'my-disk' on an instance named
gcloud compute instances set-disk-auto-delete my-instance --auto-delete --disk=my-disk
To enable auto-delete for a device named 'my-device' on an instance named 'my-instance', run:
gcloud compute instances set-disk-auto-delete my-instance --auto-delete --device-name=my-device
- POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS
- Name of the instance to operate on. For details on valid instance names, refer to the criteria documented under the field 'name' at: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/reference/rest/v1/instances
- REQUIRED FLAGS
Exactly one of these must be specified:
Specifies a disk to set auto-delete for by its device name, which is the name
that the guest operating system sees. The device name is set at the time that
the disk is attached to the instance, and need not be the same as the persistent
disk name. If the disk's device name is specified, then its persistent disk name
must not be specified using the
Specifies a disk to set auto-delete for by its resource name. If you specify a
disk to set auto-delete for by persistent disk name, then you must not specify
its device name using the
- Exactly one of these must be specified:
- OPTIONAL FLAGS
Enables auto-delete for the given disk. Enabled by default, use
Zone of the instance to operate on. If not specified, you may be prompted to
select a zone (interactive mode only).
gcloudattempts to identify the appropriate zone by searching for resources in your currently active project. If the zone cannot be determined,
gcloudprompts you for a selection with all available Google Cloud Platform zones.
To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, the user can set the
gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE
A list of zones can be fetched by running:
To unset the property, run:
gcloud config unset compute/zone
Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable
- GCLOUD WIDE FLAGS
These flags are available to all commands:
