make it as easy as EC2 :)663 votes
I won’t be drawn into an argument about hypothetically how trivial it is or isn’t; I appreciate that people here feel this is extremely simple to implement, but our engineers assure me it is not. The name propagates to many places, including the networking subsystem (for example). All of this has to be updated and tested carefully. Nonetheless, we are in fact working on it.
For those that say “it’s #N in the list!” – that’s true. It’s that high because we’ve closed many other high ranking feature requests that users here have asked us for. Now this feature is near the top. We truly appreciate your feedback, and your patience, and are working hard every day to try and provide the best, most flexible platform that we can.
Cannot make changes after saving the Instance Template84 votes
This is something we are planning to improve, hopefully later in the year.
Currently labels can be set on instances, but not on instance templates via gcloud beta commands. In order to use labels in BigQuery billing export this would be tremendously useful.21 votes
Thanks for the feedback, this is definitely planned to be available. I don’t have an exact timeframe currently, but we wouldn’t GA the feature without this. Note, it’s possible to add labels to a template through the API itself through instanceTemplates.insert(), but of course that’s not very easy to use if you’re working with gcloud.
I just started.
I can see a graph of my VM instances' utilization.
Could you add an option for me to see my current total due?
Cost management is important for me.

Thanks for the question. We are continually making improvements to our capabilities, including billing insights.

We expect to allow finer grained controls in the future.
If a machine shutdowns, the serial console log is lost. This makes debugging harder for such cases where the machine shutdowns during boot or otherwise5 votes
This will be available via Stackdriver in the near future. We’ll reach out to you to invite you to the alpha test when it’s ready. :)

Thanks for the feedback – we’re designing some improvements to this part of the UI. I don’t know when it will be implemented, but it’s something we’ll be working on.
