- gcloud alpha compute instances set-disk-auto-delete - set auto-delete behavior for disks
gcloud alpha compute instances set-disk-auto-delete INSTANCE_NAME (--device-name=DEVICE_NAME | --disk=DISK) [--no-auto-delete] [--zone=ZONE] [GCLOUD_WIDE_FLAG ...]
(ALPHA) $gcloud alpha compute instances set-disk-auto-delete is
Name of the instance to operate on.
Exactly one of these must be specified:
Specifies a disk to set auto-delete for by its device name, which is the name
that the guest operating system sees. The device name is set at the time that
the disk is attached to the instance, and need not be the same as the persistent
disk name. If the disk's device name is specified, then its persistent disk name
must not be specified using the --disk flag.
Specifies a disk to set auto-delete for by its resource name. If you specify a
disk to set auto-delete for by persistent disk name, then you must not specify
its device name using the --device-name flag.
- Exactly one of these must be specified:
Enables auto-delete for the given disk. Enabled by default, use
--no-auto-delete to disable.
Zone of the instance to operate on. If not specified, you may be prompted to
select a zone. gcloud will attempt to identify the zone by searching for
resources in your project. If the zone cannot be determined, you will then be
prompted with all Google Cloud Platform zones.
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.

These flags are available to all commands: --account, --configuration, --flags-file, --flatten, --format, --help, --log-http, --project, --quiet, --trace-token, --user-output-enabled, --verbosity. Run $ gcloud help for details.
This command is currently in ALPHA and may change without notice. If this command fails with API permission errors despite specifying the right project, you will have to apply for early access and have your projects registered on the API whitelist to use it.
