Google Cloud Resource Manager API client library

Project description

alpha pypi versions

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:

Note

Don’t forget to look at the Authentication section below. It’s slightly different from the rest of this library.

Quick Start

In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Google Cloud Resource Manager API.

Installation

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.

Mac/Linux

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
source <your-env>/bin/activate
<your-env>/bin/pip install google-cloud-resource-manager

Windows

pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
<your-env>\Scripts\activate
<your-env>\Scripts\pip.exe install google-cloud-resource-manager

Authentication

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()
