Ruby Client for the Cloud AutoML API

API Client library for the Cloud AutoML API

AutoML makes the power of machine learning available to you even if you have limited knowledge of machine learning. You can use AutoML to build on Google's machine learning capabilities to create your own custom machine learning models that are tailored to your business needs, and then integrate those models into your applications and web sites.

Actual client classes for the various versions of this API are defined in versioned client gems, with names of the form google-cloud-automl-v*. The gem google-cloud-automl is a convenience wrapper library that brings the verisoned gems in as dependencies, and provides high-level methods for constructing clients.

View the Client Library Documentation for this library, google-cloud-automl, to see the convenience methods for constructing client objects. Reference documentation for the client objects themselves can be found in the client library documentation for the versioned client gems: google-cloud-automl-v1, google-cloud-automl-v1beta1.

See also the Product Documentation for more usage information.

Quick Start

$ gem install google-cloud-automl

In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the API.
  4. Set up authentication.

Migrating from 0.x versions

The 1.0 release of the google-cloud-automl client is a significant upgrade based on a next-gen code generator, and includes substantial interface changes. Existing code written for earlier versions of this library will likely require updates to use this version. See the document for more information.

Enabling Logging

To enable logging for this library, set the logger for the underlying gRPC library. The logger that you set may be a Ruby stdlib Logger as shown below, or a Google::Cloud::Logging::Logger that will write logs to Cloud Logging. See grpc/logconfig.rb and the gRPC spec_helper.rb for additional information.

Configuring a Ruby stdlib logger:

require "logger"

module MyLogger
  LOGGER = $stderr, level: Logger::WARN
  def logger

# Define a gRPC module-level logger method before grpc/logconfig.rb loads.
module GRPC
  extend MyLogger

Supported Ruby Versions

This library is supported on Ruby 2.4+.

Google provides official support for Ruby versions that are actively supported by Ruby Core—that is, Ruby versions that are either in normal maintenance or in security maintenance, and not end of life. Currently, this means Ruby 2.4 and later. Older versions of Ruby may still work, but are unsupported and not recommended. See for details about the Ruby support schedule.
