Parameter name Value Description
Path parameters
customerId string Either the customer's primary domain name or the customer's unique identifier. If using the domain name, we do not recommend using a customerId as a key for persistent data. If the domain name for a customerId is changed, the Google system automatically updates.
subscriptionId string This is a required property. The subscriptionId is the subscription identifier and is unique for each customer. Since a subscriptionId changes when a subscription is updated, we recommend to not use this ID as a key for persistent data. And the subscriptionId can be found using the retrieve all reseller subscriptions method.
