Returns the specified Region resource. Gets a list of available regions by making a list() request. To decrease latency for this method, you can optionally omit any unneeded information from the response by using a field mask. This practice is especially recommended for unused quota information (the quotas field). To exclude one or more fields, set your request's fields query parameter to only include the fields you need. For example, to only include the id and selfLink fields, add the query parameter ?fields=id,selfLink to your request.
