add label for snapshot
When creating a VM from a snapshot, there should be some type of label that tells you what snapshot it was.
When creating a VM from an image, same thing.
Hi, thanks for the suggestion. Please take a look at the “sourceImage” property that you can get by doing "gcloud compute disks describe " and see if it meets your needs.
If not, please post back by comment and let us know how we could provide additional capability.
Sorry, please re-check my comment. I was saying that you need to use the gcloud command line tool (or alternately, access the API directly) to see the sourceImage property information. Similarly, for a snapshot, you can read the sourceDisk property, which can be seen in the API via "gcloud compute snapshots describe".

I do not see sourceImage as a field on the "VM Instance Details". So If I created a VM from a snapshot name baseline1234, I have added a label/property to capture this. I'd rather this be captured by default. If it is, I am only seeing baseline1234 added through the label that I added.
