Creates an ID that can be used to render "table" data.
This is used in conjunction with
tables.getFeatures. A call to
tables.create provides an expression and some output options. The result of
tables.create is an ID that represents a table that is the result of evaluating that expression and applying those options. Subsequently, calls to
tables.getFeatures can be made to get the table data for the entire resulting table. The ID will be valid for a moderate period (a few hours).
The most common use case for this pair of endpoints is to provide a complex expression via a POST to
tables.create, and then fetch the computed table via a GET to
tables.getFeatures. This two-part process allows for use in more situations than
table.computeFeatures. In particular: - the result of
table.computeFeatures requires pagination to get the entirety of the features. Additionally only individual
Features are returned. -
table.computeFeatures can only be called by an authorized user, using a properly-scoped OAuth token.
tables.create has the same restriction, but
GetTableData can be invoked with a URL containing an API key, so URLs invoking it can be used more broadly.
The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.
The parent of the location where the table will be created (e.g., "projects/*").
