Hey all – we’re excited to announce the public beta for renaming a VM. You can try it out by running:
$ gcloud beta compute instances set-name CURRENT_NAME —zone=ZONE —new-name=NEW_NAME
For this first version, you’ll need to stop the VM before you rename it.
More details at the docs here: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/rename-instance
As always, feedback welcome. We’re working on GA’ing this feature soon, which will include adding support in the Developer Console UI.

When we are dealing with dozens of VMs (which most Production systems have these days) we need to change things for management purposes from time to time... without the ability to do that, operations teams have to maintain a separate list of things offline... in Google Sheets!
What's the status of this request?
As mentioned, exporting the billing data is one way you can obtain whatever sorts/filters you want, but we’re considering your suggestion. Thx!
