Launch Stages

Protobuf type google.api.LaunchStage

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::ALPHA = 2

Alpha is a limited availability test for releases before they are cleared
for widespread use. By Alpha, all significant design issues are resolved
and we are in the process of verifying functionality. Alpha customers
need to apply for access, agree to applicable terms, and have their
projects whitelisted. Alpha releases don’t have to be feature complete,
no SLAs are provided, and there are no technical support obligations, but
they will be far enough along that customers can actually use them in
test environments or for limited-use tests -- just like they would in
normal production cases.

Generated from protobuf enum ALPHA = 2;

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::BETA = 3

Beta is the point at which we are ready to open a release for any
customer to use. There are no SLA or technical support obligations in a
Beta release. Products will be complete from a feature perspective, but
may have some open outstanding issues. Beta releases are suitable for
limited production use cases.

Generated from protobuf enum BETA = 3;

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::DEPRECATED = 5

Deprecated features are scheduled to be shut down and removed. For more
information, see the “Deprecation Policy” section of our Terms of

and the Google Cloud Platform Subject to the Deprecation

Generated from protobuf enum DEPRECATED = 5;

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::EARLY_ACCESS = 1

Early Access features are limited to a closed group of testers. To use
these features, you must sign up in advance and sign a Trusted Tester
agreement (which includes confidentiality provisions). These features may
be unstable, changed in backward-incompatible ways, and are not
guaranteed to be released.

Generated from protobuf enum EARLY_ACCESS = 1;

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::GA = 4

GA features are open to all developers and are considered stable and
fully qualified for production use.

Generated from protobuf enum GA = 4;

public Google\Api\LaunchStage::LAUNCH_STAGE_UNSPECIFIED = 0

Do not use this default value.

Generated from protobuf enum LAUNCH_STAGE_UNSPECIFIED = 0;
