Getting information about an instance group

    After creating an instance group, you can get basic information about the group.

    User-defined metadata that was passed during group creation or update can only be obtained using the CLI or API.

    To get information about an instance group:

    1. Open the folder page in the management console.
    2. Select Yandex Compute Cloud.
    3. On the Virtual machines page, go to the Instance groups tab.
    4. Click on the name of the group you need.

    If you don't have the Yandex.Cloud command line interface yet, install it.

    The folder specified in the CLI profile is used by default. You can specify a different folder using the --folder-name or --folder-id parameter.

    1. See the description of the CLI's get instance group info command:

      $ yc compute instance-group get --help
      
    2. Get a list of instance groups in the default folder:

      $ yc compute instance-group list
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      |          ID          |         NAME          | SIZE |
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      | amc65sbgfqeqf00m02sc | first-instance-group  |    2 |
      +----------------------+-----------------------+------+
      

      Fields:

      Field Value
      ID Group ID.
      NAME Group name.
      SIZE Group size.
    3. Select the group ID or NAME (for example, first-instance-group).

    4. Get information about the instance group:

      $ yc compute instance-group get --name first-instance-group
      

    Use the get.

    To request a list of available groups, use the method listInstances.
