Allow settings labels in instance template
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.
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.

Is this feature is available?

I would love this too ! I added a ton of labels to my storage buckets and I wanted the same for my vms and was sad to see that this was not the case as I thought the tags were the cute name of the labels on gcloud.
Is this in the works?
