Updates the specified node group.


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

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform
  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/compute

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform. You can set the scope for this method like this: compute1 --scope <scope> node-groups patch ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <project> (string)
    • Project ID for this request.
  • <zone> (string)
    • The name of the zone for this request.
  • <node-group> (string)
    • Name of the NodeGroup resource to update.

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:

    max-nodes: integer
    min-nodes: integer
    mode: string
  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  fingerprint: string
  id: string
  kind: string
  location-hint: string
  maintenance-policy: string
      nanos: integer
      seconds: string
    start-time: string
  name: string
  node-template: string
  self-link: string
    share-type: string
  size: integer
  status: string
  zone: 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 .autoscaling-policy max-nodes=48
    • The maximum number of nodes that the group should have. Must be set if autoscaling is enabled. Maximum value allowed is 100.
  • min-nodes=69
    • The minimum number of nodes that the group should have.
  • mode=amet

    • The autoscaling mode. Set to one of: ON, OFF, or ONLY_SCALE_OUT. For more information, see Autoscaler modes.
  • .. creation-timestamp=voluptua.

    • [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
  • description=lorem
    • An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
  • fingerprint=justo
    • No description provided.
  • id=aliquyam
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=lorem
    • [Output Only] The type of the resource. Always compute#nodeGroup for node group.
  • location-hint=gubergren
    • An opaque location hint used to place the Node close to other resources. This field is for use by internal tools that use the public API. The location hint here on the NodeGroup overrides any location_hint present in the NodeTemplate.
  • maintenance-policy=eos
    • Specifies how to handle instances when a node in the group undergoes maintenance. Set to one of: DEFAULT, RESTART_IN_PLACE, or MIGRATE_WITHIN_NODE_GROUP. The default value is DEFAULT. For more information, see Maintenance policies.
  • maintenance-window.maintenance-duration nanos=15
    • Span of time that's a fraction of a second at nanosecond resolution. Durations less than one second are represented with a 0 seconds field and a positive nanos field. Must be from 0 to 999,999,999 inclusive.
  • seconds=justo

    • Span of time at a resolution of a second. Must be from 0 to 315,576,000,000 inclusive. Note: these bounds are computed from: 60 sec/min * 60 min/hr * 24 hr/day * 365.25 days/year * 10000 years
  • .. start-time=elitr

    • Start time of the window. This must be in UTC format that resolves to one of 00:00, 04:00, 08:00, 12:00, 16:00, or 20:00. For example, both 13:00-5 and 08:00 are valid.
  • .. name=labore

    • The name of the resource, provided by the client when initially creating the resource. The resource name must be 1-63 characters long, and comply with RFC1035. Specifically, the name must be 1-63 characters long and match the regular expression [a-z]([-a-z0-9]*[a-z0-9])? which means the first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit, except the last character, which cannot be a dash.
  • node-template=elitr
    • URL of the node template to create the node group from.
  • self-link=sed
    • [Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.
  • share-settings share-type=dolores

    • Type of sharing for this shared-reservation
  • .. size=90

    • [Output Only] The total number of nodes in the node group.
  • status=dolores
    • No description provided.
  • zone=voluptua.
    • [Output Only] The name of the zone where the node group resides, such as us-central1-a.

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 request-id=string
    • An optional request ID to identify requests. Specify a unique request ID so that if you must retry your request, the server will know to ignore the request if it has already been completed. For example, consider a situation where you make an initial request and the request times out. If you make the request again with the same request ID, the server can check if original operation with the same request ID was received, and if so, will ignore the second request. This prevents clients from accidentally creating duplicate commitments. The request ID must be a valid UUID with the exception that zero UUID is not supported ( 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000).

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-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
  • -p user-ip=string
