google.cloud.gcp_compute_address module – Creates a GCP Address

Note

This module is part of the google.cloud collection (version 1.1.2).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install google.cloud. You need further requirements to be able to use this module, see Requirements for details.

To use it in a playbook, specify: google.cloud.gcp_compute_address.

Synopsis

  • Represents an Address resource.

  • Each virtual machine instance has an ephemeral internal IP address and, optionally, an external IP address. To communicate between instances on the same network, you can use an instance’s internal IP address. To communicate with the Internet and instances outside of the same network, you must specify the instance’s external IP address.

  • Internal IP addresses are ephemeral and only belong to an instance for the lifetime of the instance; if the instance is deleted and recreated, the instance is assigned a new internal IP address, either by Compute Engine or by you. External IP addresses can be either ephemeral or static.

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

Comments

address

string

The static external IP address represented by this resource. Only IPv4 is supported. An address may only be specified for INTERNAL address types. The IP address must be inside the specified subnetwork, if any.

address_type

string

The type of address to reserve.

Some valid choices include: “INTERNAL”, “EXTERNAL”

Default: "EXTERNAL"

auth_kind

string / required

The type of credential used.

Choices:

  • "application"

  • "machineaccount"

  • "serviceaccount"

description

string

An optional description of this resource.

env_type

string

Specifies which Ansible environment you’re running this module within.

This should not be set unless you know what you’re doing.

This only alters the User Agent string for any API requests.

name

string / required

Name of the resource. 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.

network

dictionary

The URL of the network in which to reserve the address. This field can only be used with INTERNAL type with the VPC_PEERING and IPSEC_INTERCONNECT purposes.

This field represents a link to a Network resource in GCP. It can be specified in two ways. First, you can place a dictionary with key ‘selfLink’ and value of your resource’s selfLink Alternatively, you can add `register: name-of-resource` to a gcp_compute_network task and then set this network field to “{{ name-of-resource }}”

network_tier

string

The networking tier used for configuring this address. If this field is not specified, it is assumed to be PREMIUM.

Some valid choices include: “PREMIUM”, “STANDARD”

prefix_length

integer

The prefix length if the resource represents an IP range.

project

string

The Google Cloud Platform project to use.

purpose

string

The purpose of this resource, which can be one of the following values: * GCE_ENDPOINT for addresses that are used by VM instances, alias IP ranges, internal load balancers, and similar resources.

* SHARED_LOADBALANCER_VIP for an address that can be used by multiple internal load balancers.

* VPC_PEERING for addresses that are reserved for VPC peer networks.

* IPSEC_INTERCONNECT for addresses created from a private IP range that are reserved for a VLAN attachment in an IPsec-encrypted Cloud Interconnect configuration. These addresses are regional resources.

This should only be set when using an Internal address.

region

string / required

URL of the region where the regional address resides.

This field is not applicable to global addresses.

scopes

list / elements=string

Array of scopes to be used

service_account_contents

jsonarg

The contents of a Service Account JSON file, either in a dictionary or as a JSON string that represents it.

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

string

Whether the given object should exist in GCP

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

subnetwork

dictionary

The URL of the subnetwork in which to reserve the address. If an IP address is specified, it must be within the subnetwork’s IP range.

This field can only be used with INTERNAL type with GCE_ENDPOINT/DNS_RESOLVER purposes.

This field represents a link to a Subnetwork resource in GCP. It can be specified in two ways. First, you can place a dictionary with key ‘selfLink’ and value of your resource’s selfLink Alternatively, you can add `register: name-of-resource` to a gcp_compute_subnetwork task and then set this subnetwork field to “{{ name-of-resource }}”
