Hi folks, we know there is a ton of interest in this ability, and our engineering team is working on enabling it. We don’t have specific schedule updates right now, but I wanted to post an update acknowledging that we definitely agree this is an important ability and we will launch the functionality just as soon as we can!
Thanks, we’re looking into this one.Karl Gingerich commented
I am talking about manual on/off via the cloud console. API calls of course do start up instances without prompts.Karl Gingerich shared this idea ·
With the recent release of Google Cloud Scheduler to beta, we’ve published a step-by-step tutorial on using Cloud Scheduler to schedule start/stop of GCE VM instances. Please take a look!
In parallel, we’re also looking into ways to make scheduling VM operations even easier.Karl Gingerich commented
I am doing this now from a Mac in my office and using Cron and the Cloud API CLI, but built in to the cloud console would be better.
