Creates a new capacity commitment resource.


You will need authorization for at least one of the following scopes to make a valid call:


If unset, the scope for this method defaults to You can set the scope for this method like this: bigqueryreservation1 --scope <scope> projects locations-capacity-commitments-create ...

Required Scalar Argument

  • <parent> (string)
    • Required. Resource name of the parent reservation. E.g., projects/myproject/locations/US

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:

  commitment-end-time: string
  commitment-start-time: string
  edition: string
    code: integer
    message: string
  is-flat-rate: boolean
  multi-region-auxiliary: boolean
  name: string
  plan: string
  renewal-plan: string
  slot-count: int64
  state: 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 . commitment-end-time=et
    • Output only. The end of the current commitment period. It is applicable only for ACTIVE capacity commitments.
  • commitment-start-time=magna
    • Output only. The start of the current commitment period. It is applicable only for ACTIVE capacity commitments.
  • edition=no
    • Edition of the capacity commitment.
  • failure-status code=46
    • The status code, which should be an enum value of google.rpc.Code.
  • message=voluptua.

    • A developer-facing error message, which should be in English. Any user-facing error message should be localized and sent in the google.rpc.Status.details field, or localized by the client.
  • .. is-flat-rate=false

    • Output only. If true, the commitment is a flat-rate commitment, otherwise, it's an edition commitment.
  • multi-region-auxiliary=true
    • Applicable only for commitments located within one of the BigQuery multi-regions (US or EU). If set to true, this commitment is placed in the organization's secondary region which is designated for disaster recovery purposes. If false, this commitment is placed in the organization's default region. NOTE: this is a preview feature. Project must be allow-listed in order to set this field.
  • name=amet.
    • Output only. The resource name of the capacity commitment, e.g., projects/myproject/locations/US/capacityCommitments/123 The commitment_id must only contain lower case alphanumeric characters or dashes. It must start with a letter and must not end with a dash. Its maximum length is 64 characters.
  • plan=duo
    • Capacity commitment commitment plan.
  • renewal-plan=ipsum
    • The plan this capacity commitment is converted to after commitment_end_time passes. Once the plan is changed, committed period is extended according to commitment plan. Only applicable for ANNUAL and TRIAL commitments.
  • slot-count=-62
    • Number of slots in this commitment.
  • state=lorem
    • Output only. State of the commitment.

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 Method Properties

You may set the following properties to further configure the call. Please note that -p is followed by one or more key-value-pairs, and is called like this -p k1=v1 k2=v2 even though the listing below repeats the -p for completeness.

  • -p capacity-commitment-id=string

    • The optional capacity commitment ID. Capacity commitment name will be generated automatically if this field is empty. This field must only contain lower case alphanumeric characters or dashes. The first and last character cannot be a dash. Max length is 64 characters. NOTE: this ID won't be kept if the capacity commitment is split or merged.
  • -p enforce-single-admin-project-per-org=boolean

    • If true, fail the request if another project in the organization has a capacity commitment.
