class google.cloud.bigtable.instance.Instance(instance_id, client, display_name=None, instance_type=None, labels=None, _state=None)[source]#

Bases: object

Representation of a Google Cloud Bigtable Instance.

We can use an Instance to:

Note

For now, we leave out the default_storage_type (an enum) which if not sent will end up as data_v2_pb2.STORAGE_SSD.

Parameters:
  • instance_id (str) – The ID of the instance.
  • client (Client) – The client that owns the instance. Provides authorization and a project ID.
  • display_name (str) – (Optional) The display name for the instance in the Cloud Console UI. (Must be between 4 and 30 characters.) If this value is not set in the constructor, will fall back to the instance ID.
  • instance_type (int) – (Optional) The type of the instance. Possible values are represented by the following constants: google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.Type.PRODUCTION. google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.Type.DEVELOPMENT, Defaults to google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.Type.UNSPECIFIED.
  • labels (dict) – (Optional) Labels are a flexible and lightweight mechanism for organizing cloud resources into groups that reflect a customer’s organizational needs and deployment strategies. They can be used to filter resources and aggregate metrics. Label keys must be between 1 and 63 characters long. Maximum 64 labels can be associated with a given resource. Label values must be between 0 and 63 characters long. Keys and values must both be under 128 bytes.
  • _state (int) – (OutputOnly) The current state of the instance. Possible values are represented by the following constants: google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.State.STATE_NOT_KNOWN. google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.State.READY. google.cloud.bigtable.enums.Instance.State.CREATING.

instance.instance_id = 'i-changed-my-mind'

before calling create().

Parameters:
  • location_id (str) – (Creation Only) The location where nodes and storage of the cluster owned by this instance reside.
