community.google.gce_labels – Create, Update or Destroy GCE Labels.

Note

This plugin is part of the community.google collection (version 1.0.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.google.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.google.gce_labels.

Synopsis

  • Create, Update or Destroy GCE Labels on instances, disks, snapshots, etc. When specifying the GCE resource, users may specify the full URL for the resource (its ‘self_link’), or the individual parameters of the resource (type, location, name). Examples for the two options can be seen in the documentation. See https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/label-or-tag-resources for more information about GCE Labels. Labels are gradually being added to more GCE resources, so this module will need to be updated as new resources are added to the GCE (v1) API.
