google.cloud.gcp_compute_backend_bucket – Creates a GCP BackendBucket

Note

This plugin is part of the google.cloud collection.

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install google.cloud.

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

Synopsis

  • Backend buckets allow you to use Google Cloud Storage buckets with HTTP(S) load balancing.

  • An HTTP(S) load balancer can direct traffic to specified URLs to a backend bucket rather than a backend service. It can send requests for static content to a Cloud Storage bucket and requests for dynamic content to a virtual machine instance.

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.
bucket_name
string / required
Cloud Storage bucket name.
cdn_policy
dictionary
Cloud CDN configuration for this Backend Bucket.
signed_url_cache_max_age_sec
integer / required
Maximum number of seconds the response to a signed URL request will be considered fresh. After this time period, the response will be revalidated before being served.
When serving responses to signed URL requests, Cloud CDN will internally behave as though all responses from this backend had a "Cache-Control: public, max-age=[TTL]" header, regardless of any existing Cache-Control header. The actual headers served in responses will not be altered.
description
string
An optional textual description of the resource; provided by the client when the resource is created.
enable_cdn
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If true, enable Cloud CDN for this BackendBucket.
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. 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.
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
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the given object should exist in GCP

Notes

Note

  • API Reference: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/reference/v1/backendBuckets

  • Using a Cloud Storage bucket as a load balancer backend: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/load-balancing/http/backend-bucket

  • for authentication, you can set service_account_file using the gcp_service_account_file env variable.

  • for authentication, you can set service_account_contents using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_CONTENTS env variable.

  • For authentication, you can set service_account_email using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_EMAIL 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.
