Updates the specified commitment with the data included in the request. Update is performed only on selected fields included as part of update-mask. Only the following fields can be modified: auto_renew.


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> region-commitments update ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <project> (string)
    • Project ID for this request.
  • <region> (string)
    • Name of the region for this request.
  • <commitment> (string)
    • Name of the commitment for which auto renew is being updated.

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:

  auto-renew: boolean
  category: string
  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  end-timestamp: string
  existing-reservations: [string]
  id: string
  kind: string
    amount: string
    cores-per-license: string
    license: string
  merge-source-commitments: [string]
  name: string
  plan: string
  region: string
  self-link: string
  split-source-commitment: string
  start-timestamp: string
  status: string
  status-message: string
  type: 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 . auto-renew=false
    • Specifies whether to enable automatic renewal for the commitment. The default value is false if not specified. The field can be updated until the day of the commitment expiration at 12:00am PST. If the field is set to true, the commitment will be automatically renewed for either one or three years according to the terms of the existing commitment.
  • category=dolores
    • The category of the commitment. Category MACHINE specifies commitments composed of machine resources such as VCPU or MEMORY, listed in resources. Category LICENSE specifies commitments composed of software licenses, listed in licenseResources. Note that only MACHINE commitments should have a Type specified.

    • [Output Only] Commitment end time in RFC3339 text format.
  • existing-reservations=accusam
    • Specifies the already existing reservations to attach to the Commitment. This field is optional, and it can be a full or partial URL. For example, the following are valid URLs to an reservation: - https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/project/zones/zone /reservations/reservation - projects/project/zones/zone/reservations/reservation
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • id=justo
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=no
    • [Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#commitment for commitments.
  • license-resource amount=et
    • The number of licenses purchased.
  • cores-per-license=aliquyam
    • Specifies the core range of the instance for which this license applies.
  • license=sed

    • Any applicable license URI.
  • .. merge-source-commitments=accusam

    • List of source commitments to be merged into a new commitment.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • name=kasd
    • Name of the resource. Provided by the client when the resource is created. The 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.
  • plan=justo
    • The plan for this commitment, which determines duration and discount rate. The currently supported plans are TWELVE_MONTH (1 year), and THIRTY_SIX_MONTH (3 years).
  • region=lorem
    • [Output Only] URL of the region where this commitment may be used.
  • self-link=et
    • [Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.
  • split-source-commitment=gubergren
    • Source commitment to be split into a new commitment.
  • start-timestamp=clita
    • [Output Only] Commitment start time in RFC3339 text format.
  • status=clita
    • [Output Only] Status of the commitment with regards to eventual expiration (each commitment has an end date defined). One of the following values: NOT_YET_ACTIVE, ACTIVE, EXPIRED.
  • status-message=elitr
    • [Output Only] An optional, human-readable explanation of the status.
  • type=rebum.
    • The type of commitment, which affects the discount rate and the eligible resources. Type MEMORY_OPTIMIZED specifies a commitment that will only apply to memory optimized machines. Type ACCELERATOR_OPTIMIZED specifies a commitment that will only apply to accelerator optimized machines.

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 paths=string

    • No description provided.
  • -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).
  • -p update-mask=string

    • update_mask indicates fields to be updated as part of this request.
