Google Cloud Resource Manager API client library
Google Cloud Resource Manager API provides methods that you can use to programmatically manage your projects in the Google Cloud Platform. With this API, you can do the following:
- Get a list of all projects associated with an account
- Create new projects
- Update existing projects
- Delete projects
- Undelete, or recover, projects that you don’t want to delete
- Client Library Documentation
- Product Documentation
Don’t forget to look at the Authentication section below. It’s slightly different from the rest of this library.
In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:
- Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
- Enable billing for your project.
- Enable the Google Cloud Resource Manager API.
Install this library in a virtualenv using pip. virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. The basic problem it addresses is one of dependencies and versions, and indirectly permissions.
With virtualenv, it’s possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.
Supported Python Versions
Python >= 3.4
Deprecated Python Versions
Python == 2.7. Python 2.7 support will be removed on January 1, 2020.
pip install virtualenv virtualenv <your-env> source <your-env>/bin/activate <your-env>/bin/pip install google-cloud-resource-manager
pip install virtualenv virtualenv <your-env> <your-env>\Scripts\activate <your-env>\Scripts\pip.exe install google-cloud-resource-manager
Unlike the other APIs, the Resource Manager API is focused on managing your various projects inside Google Cloud Platform. What this means (currently, as of August 2015) is that you can’t use a Service Account to work with some parts of this API (for example, creating projects).
The reason is actually pretty simple: if your API call is trying to do something like create a project, what project’s Service Account can you use? Currently none.
This means that for this API you should always use the credentials provided by the Google Cloud SDK, which you can get by running gcloud auth login.
Once you run that command, google-cloud-python will automatically pick up the credentials, and you can use the “automatic discovery” feature of the library.
Start by authenticating:
$ gcloud auth login
And then simply create a client:
from google.cloud import resource_manager client = resource_manager.Client()
Using the API
Here’s a quick example of the full life-cycle:
from google.cloud import resource_manager client = resource_manager.Client() # List all projects you have access to for project in client.list_projects(): print(project) # Create a new project new_project = client.new_project( 'your-project-id-here', name='My new project') new_project.create() # Update an existing project project = client.fetch_project('my-existing-project') project.name = 'Modified name' project.update() # Delete a project project = client.new_project('my-existing-project') project.delete() # Undelete a project project = client.new_project('my-existing-project') project.undelete()
