Getting an operation's status

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Several operations you request are long-running, such as product set creation via bulk import, purging a product set, and purging orphaned products. These types of requests will return a JSON with an operation ID that you can use to get the status of the operation.

For example, a batch delete (purge) request returns the following JSON:

{
"name": "projects/project-id/locations/location-id/operations/bc4e1d412863e626"
}

In this case, the operation ID is bc4e1d412863e626. The following samples show how to get the status of this operation with this ID.

REST

Before using any of the request data, make the following replacements:

  • PROJECT_ID: Your Google Cloud project ID.
  • LOCATION_ID: A valid location identifier. Valid location identifiers are: us-west1, us-east1, europe-west1, and asia-east1.
  • OPERATION_ID: The ID of your operation. The ID is the last element of the name of your operation. For example:
    • operation name: projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION_ID/operations/bc4e1d412863e626
    • operation id: bc4e1d412863e626

HTTP method and URL:

GET https://vision.googleapis.com/v1/locations/location-id/operations/operation-id

To send your request, choose one of these options:

curl

Execute the following command:

curl -X GET \
-H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth print-access-token)" \
-H "x-goog-user-project: project-id" \
"https://vision.googleapis.com/v1/locations/location-id/operations/operation-id"

PowerShell

Execute the following command:

$cred = gcloud auth print-access-token
$headers = @{ "Authorization" = "Bearer $cred"; "x-goog-user-project" = "project-id" }

Invoke-WebRequest `
-Method GET `
-Headers $headers `
-Uri "https://vision.googleapis.com/v1/locations/location-id/operations/operation-id" | Select-Object -Expand Content
