etag

string (bytes format)

The etag is used for optimistic concurrency control as a way to help prevent simultaneous updates of a policy from overwriting each other. It is strongly suggested that systems make use of the etag in the read-modify-write cycle to perform policy updates in order to avoid race conditions: An etag is returned in the response to policies.get, and systems are expected to put that etag in the request to policies.set to ensure that their change will be applied to the same version of the policy.

If no etag is provided in the call to policies.get, then the existing policy is overwritten blindly.

A base64-encoded string.
