gcloud formatting output

GCP : output in table format using gcloud sdk tool

The Google Cloud Platform(GCP) provides a handy CLI tool to interact with its service – gcp cloud sdk or gcloud command. Here are some tips to format the output of this command in a tabular format.

Let us list the zones in GCP and by default this is what the output looks like –

$ gcloud compute zones list
NAME                       REGION                   STATUS  NEXT_MAINTENANCE  TURNDOWN_DATE

Now let us output this in tabular format and only print the GCP zones we are interested in –

$ gcloud compute zones  list --format="table[box,title=GCP-REGIONS](name,region,status)" --filter='name~europe'
┌──────────────────────────────────────────┐

├─────────────────┬───────────────┬────────┤

├─────────────────┼───────────────┼────────┤
│ europe-west4-a  │ europe-west4  │ UP     │
│ europe-west4-b  │ europe-west4  │ UP     │
