Provisions a new Apigee organization with a functioning runtime. This is the standard way to create trial organizations for a free Apigee trial.


You will need authorization for the scope to make a valid call.

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to You can set the scope for this method like this: apigee1 --scope <scope> projects provision-organization ...

Required Scalar Argument

  • <project> (string)
    • Required. Name of the GCP project with which to associate the Apigee organization.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  analytics-region: string
  authorized-network: string
  disable-vpc-peering: boolean
  runtime-location: string

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . analytics-region=sit
    • Primary Cloud Platform region for analytics data storage. For valid values, see Create an organization. Defaults to us-west1.
  • authorized-network=consetetur
    • Compute Engine network used for Service Networking to be peered with Apigee runtime instances. See Getting started with the Service Networking API. Apigee also supports shared VPC (that is, the host network project is not the same as the one that is peering with Apigee). See Shared VPC overview. To use a shared VPC network, use the following format: projects/{host-project-id}/{region}/networks/{network-name}. For example: projects/my-sharedvpc-host/global/networks/mynetwork
  • disable-vpc-peering=false
    • Optional. Flag that specifies whether the VPC Peering through Private Google Access should be disabled between the consumer network and Apigee. Required if an authorizedNetwork on the consumer project is not provided, in which case the flag should be set to true. The value must be set before the creation of any Apigee runtime instance and can be updated only when there are no runtime instances. Note: Apigee will be deprecating the vpc peering model that requires you to provide 'authorizedNetwork', by making the non-peering model as the default way of provisioning Apigee organization in future. So, this will be a temporary flag to enable the transition. Not supported for Apigee hybrid.
  • runtime-location=rebum.
    • Cloud Platform location for the runtime instance. Defaults to zone us-west1-a. If a region is provided, EVAL organizations will use the region for automatically selecting a zone for the runtime instance.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string

    • Available to use for quota purposes for server-side applications. Can be any arbitrary string assigned to a user, but should not exceed 40 characters.
  • -p upload-type=string

    • Legacy upload protocol for media (e.g. "media", "multipart").
  • -p upload-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
