Rundeck GCP Nodes Plugin
This is a Resource Model Source plugin for Rundeck 3.0.9+ that provides Google Cloud Platform GCE Instances as nodes for the Rundeck Server.

You will need to add the following labels to your GCP VMs if you want more accurate/meaning full values for the OS (because unfortunately, there currently isn't that data in a standalone field/value that describes that for your VM -- just look at the output of
gcloud compute instances describe):
environment(example value: prod)
osfamily(example value: linux)
osname(example value: rhel7)
*** No longer a requirement from
v2.7.1-2 onward ***
By default, your connection string (denoted by the
User @ Host column in your project nodes page) is
rundeck@hostname, but if you want it to show IP instead you can set the
hostname.selector attribute to
accessConfigs for internal and external(NAT) IPs respectively
Only Running Instances in the resource config doesn't work, it will always report the nodes regardless of state.
