NAME

gcloud compute images create - create Google Compute Engine images

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


gcloud compute images create NAME [--description DESCRIPTION] [--source-disk-zone SOURCE_DISK_ZONE] [--source-disk SOURCE_DISK | --source-uri SOURCE_URI] [GLOBAL-FLAG ...]

DESCRIPTION

gcloud compute images create is used to create custom disk images. The resulting image can be provided during instance or disk creation so that the instance attached to the resulting disks has access to a known set of software or files from the image.

Images can be created from gzipped compressed tarball containing raw disk data or from existing disks in any zone.

Images are global resources, so they can be used across zones and projects.

To learn more about creating image tarballs, visit https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/creating-custom-image.

POSITIONAL ARGUMENTS

NAME

The name of the image to create.

FLAGS

--description DESCRIPTION

An optional, textual description for the image being created.

--source-disk SOURCE_DISK
A source disk to create the image from. The value for this option can be the name of a disk with the zone specified via --source-disk-zone flag.

This flag is mutually exclusive with --source-uri.

--source-disk-zone SOURCE_DISK_ZONE
The zone of the disk specified by --source-disk. If not specified, you will be prompted to select a zone.

To avoid prompting when this flag is omitted, you can set the compute/zone property:

$ gcloud config set compute/zone ZONE

A list of zones can be fetched by running:

$ gcloud compute zones list

To unset the property, run:

$ gcloud config unset compute/zone

Alternatively, the zone can be stored in the environment variable CLOUDSDK_COMPUTE_ZONE.

--source-uri SOURCE_URI
The full Google Cloud Storage URI where the disk image is stored. This file must be a gzip-compressed tarball whose name ends in .tar.gz.

This flag is mutually exclusive with --source-disk.

GLOBAL FLAGS

Run $ gcloud help for a description of flags available to all commands.
