gcp_compute_network – Creates a GCP Network

New in version 2.6.

Synopsis

  • Manages a VPC network or legacy network resource on GCP.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.6
  • requests >= 2.18.4
  • google-auth >= 1.3.0

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auth_kind
string / required
    Choices:
  • application
  • machineaccount
  • serviceaccount
The type of credential used.
auto_create_subnetworks
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
When set to `true`, the network is created in "auto subnet mode" and it will create a subnet for each region automatically across the `10.128.0.0/9` address range.
When set to `false`, the network is created in "custom subnet mode" so the user can explicitly connect subnetwork resources.
description
-
An optional description of this resource. The resource must be recreated to modify this field.
ipv4_range
-
If this field is specified, a deprecated legacy network is created.
You will no longer be able to create a legacy network on Feb 1, 2020.
See the [legacy network docs](https://cloud.google.com/vpc/docs/legacy) for more details.
The range of internal addresses that are legal on this legacy network.
This range is a CIDR specification, for example: `192.168.0.0/16`.
The resource must be recreated to modify this field.
name
- / required
Name of the resource. Provided by the client when the resource is created. The name must be 1-63 characters long, and comply with RFC1035. Specifically, the name must be 1-63 characters long and match the regular expression `[a-z]([-a-z0-9]*[a-z0-9])?` which means the first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit, except the last character, which cannot be a dash.
project
string
The Google Cloud Platform project to use.
routing_config
-
added in 2.8
The network-level routing configuration for this network. Used by Cloud Router to determine what type of network-wide routing behavior to enforce.
routing_mode
- / required
    Choices:
  • REGIONAL
  • GLOBAL
The network-wide routing mode to use. If set to `REGIONAL`, this network's cloud routers will only advertise routes with subnetworks of this network in the same region as the router. If set to `GLOBAL`, this network's cloud routers will advertise routes with all subnetworks of this network, across regions.
scopes
list
Array of scopes to be used.
service_account_contents
string
A string representing the contents of a Service Account JSON file.
This should not be passed in as a dictionary, but a string that has the exact contents of a service account json file (valid JSON)
service_account_email
string
An optional service account email address if machineaccount is selected and the user does not wish to use the default email.
service_account_file
path
The path of a Service Account JSON file if serviceaccount is selected as type.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the given object should exist in GCP

Notes

Note

  • API Reference: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/reference/rest/v1/networks
  • Official Documentation: https://cloud.google.com/vpc/docs/vpc
  • For authentication, you can set service_account_file using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set service_account_email using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_EMAIL env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set service_account_contents using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_CONTENTS env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set auth_kind using the GCP_AUTH_KIND env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set scopes using the GCP_SCOPES env variable.
  • Environment variables values will only be used if the playbook values are not set.
  • The service_account_email and service_account_file options are mutually exclusive.

Examples

- name: create a network
  gcp_compute_network:
    name: test_object
    auto_create_subnetworks: 'true'
    project: test_project
    auth_kind: serviceaccount
    service_account_file: "/tmp/auth.pem"
    state: present

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
autoCreateSubnetworks
boolean
success
When set to `true`, the network is created in "auto subnet mode" and it will create a subnet for each region automatically across the `10.128.0.0/9` address range.
When set to `false`, the network is created in "custom subnet mode" so the user can explicitly connect subnetwork resources.

creationTimestamp
string
success
Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.

description
string
success
An optional description of this resource. The resource must be recreated to modify this field.

string
success
The gateway address for default routing out of the network. This value is selected by GCP.

id
integer
success
The unique identifier for the resource.

ipv4_range
string
success
If this field is specified, a deprecated legacy network is created.
