string
fingerprint
Required

The fingerprint is a unique identifier for a given version of the configuration. Each change to the configuration will update this value. A client cannot change this value. If specified when updating a specification, the changes will only be applied if the current fingerprint matches the specified fingerprint. This field can be used to guard against updates that has happened between the specification content was read and until it is applied.

spec
Required

The CustomizationSpec structure contains information required to customize a virtual machine when deploying it or migrating it to a new host.

string
description
Required

Description of the specification.

string
name
Required

Name of the specification.

messages
Required

Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers. The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked.

Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.

object
data
Optional

Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully. Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports.

The ArgumentLocations, FileLocations, and TransientIndication structures are intended as possible values for this field. DynamicID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.

Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.

error_type
Optional

Enumeration of all standard errors. Used as discriminator in protocols that have no standard means for transporting the error type, e.g. REST.
ERROR : Discriminator for the Error type.
ALREADY_EXISTS : Discriminator for the AlreadyExists type.
ALREADY_IN_DESIRED_STATE : Discriminator for the AlreadyInDesiredState type.

messages
Required

Stack of one or more localizable messages for human error consumers. The message at the top of the stack (first in the list) describes the error from the perspective of the operation the client invoked.

Each subsequent message in the stack describes the "cause" of the prior message.

object
data
Optional

Data to facilitate clients responding to the operation reporting a standard error to indicating that it was unable to complete successfully. Operations may provide data that clients can use when responding to errors. Since the data that clients need may be specific to the context of the operation reporting the error, different operations that report the same error may provide different data in the error. The documentation for each each operation will describe what, if any, data it provides for each error it reports.

The ArgumentLocations, FileLocations, and TransientIndication structures are intended as possible values for this field. DynamicID may also be useful as a value for this field (although that is not its primary purpose). Some services may provide their own specific structures for use as the value of this field when reporting errors from their operations.

Some operations will not set this field when reporting errors.

error_type
Optional

Enumeration of all standard errors. Used as discriminator in protocols that have no standard means for transporting the error type, e.g. REST.
ERROR : Discriminator for the Error type.
ALREADY_EXISTS : Discriminator for the AlreadyExists type.
ALREADY_IN_DESIRED_STATE : Discriminator for the AlreadyInDesiredState type.
CANCELED : Discriminator for the Canceled type.
CONCURRENT_CHANGE : Discriminator for the ConcurrentChange type.
FEATURE_IN_USE : Discriminator for the FeatureInUse type.
INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR : Discriminator for the InternalServerError type.
INVALID_ARGUMENT : Discriminator for the InvalidArgument type.
INVALID_ELEMENT_CONFIGURATION : Discriminator for the InvalidElementConfiguration type.
INVALID_ELEMENT_TYPE : Discriminator for the InvalidElementType type.
INVALID_REQUEST : Discriminator for the InvalidRequest type.
NOT_ALLOWED_IN_CURRENT_STATE : Discriminator for the NotAllowedInCurrentState type.
NOT_FOUND : Discriminator for the NotFound type.
OPERATION_NOT_FOUND : Discriminator for the OperationNotFound type.
