Fields
name

string

The server-assigned name, which is only unique within the same service that originally returns it. If you use the default HTTP mapping, the name should be a resource name ending with operations/{unique_id}.

metadata

object

A QueryMetadata object containing service-specific data associated with the operation.

An object containing fields of an arbitrary type. An additional field "@type" contains a URI identifying the type. Example: { "id": 1234, "@type": "types.example.com/standard/id" }.

done

boolean

If the value is false, it means the operation is still in progress. If true, the operation is completed, and either error or response is available.

Union field result. The operation result, which can be either an error or a valid response. If done == false, neither error nor response is set. If done == true, exactly one of error or response is set. result can be only one of the following:
error

object (Status)

The error result of the operation in case of failure or cancellation.

response

object

A QueryResponse object, returned if the query operation is successful.

An object containing fields of an arbitrary type. An additional field "@type" contains a URI identifying the type. Example: { "id": 1234, "@type": "types.example.com/standard/id" }.

Status

The Status type defines a logical error model that is suitable for different programming environments, including REST APIs and RPC APIs. It is used by gRPC. Each Status message contains three pieces of data: error code, error message, and error details.

You can find out more about this error model and how to work with it in the API Design Guide.

Fields
code

integer

The status code, which should be an enum value of google.rpc.Code.

string

A developer-facing error message, which should be in English. Any user-facing error message should be localized and sent in the google.rpc.Status.details field, or localized by the client.

details[]

object

A list of messages that carry the error details. There is a common set of message types for APIs to use.

An object containing fields of an arbitrary type. An additional field "@type" contains a URI identifying the type. Example: { "id": 1234, "@type": "types.example.com/standard/id" }.

Methods

cancel

Starts asynchronous cancellation on a long-running operation.

delete

Deletes a long-running operation.

get

Gets the latest state of a long-running operation.

list

Lists operations that match the specified filter in the request.

wait

Waits for the specified long-running operation until it is done or reaches at most a specified timeout, returning the latest state.
