Why goes allocate address not print out the address as the response? Weird!
Please provide more detail, see comments.
Yes, you are right. I meant gcloud create addresses create, and ideally it should report back the address just created. Otherwise, another call is required to fetch that.
Hi - "allocate address" is an AWS command. I think I know what you mean though. Do you mean, "gcloud compute addresses create" and its equivalent API call? Are you asking that the command simply report back the IP address value that was created?
