Return Values

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

Key

Description

resources

complex

List of resources

Returned: always

creationTimestamp

string

Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.

Returned: success

description

string

An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.

Returned: success

id

integer

The unique identifier for the resource.

Returned: success

IPAddress

string

The IP address that this forwarding rule is serving on behalf of.

Addresses are restricted based on the forwarding rule’s load balancing scheme (EXTERNAL or INTERNAL) and scope (global or regional).

When the load balancing scheme is EXTERNAL, for global forwarding rules, the address must be a global IP, and for regional forwarding rules, the address must live in the same region as the forwarding rule. If this field is empty, an ephemeral IPv4 address from the same scope (global or regional) will be assigned. A regional forwarding rule supports IPv4 only. A global forwarding rule supports either IPv4 or IPv6.

When the load balancing scheme is INTERNAL, this can only be an RFC 1918 IP address belonging to the network/subnet configured for the forwarding rule. By default, if this field is empty, an ephemeral internal IP address will be automatically allocated from the IP range of the subnet or network configured for this forwarding rule.

An address can be specified either by a literal IP address or a URL reference to an existing Address resource. The following examples are all valid: * 100.1.2.3 * https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/project/regions/region/addresses/address * projects/project/regions/region/addresses/address * regions/region/addresses/address * global/addresses/address * address .

Returned: success

IPProtocol

string

The IP protocol to which this rule applies. When the load balancing scheme is INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED, only TCP is valid. This field must not be set if the global address is configured as a purpose of PRIVATE_SERVICE_CONNECT and addressType of INTERNAL .

Returned: success

ipVersion

string

The IP Version that will be used by this global forwarding rule.

Returned: success

loadBalancingScheme

string

This signifies what the GlobalForwardingRule will be used for.

The value of INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED means that this will be used for Internal Global HTTP(S) LB. The value of EXTERNAL means that this will be used for External Global Load Balancing (HTTP(S) LB, External TCP/UDP LB, SSL Proxy) ([Beta](https://terraform.io/docs/providers/google/guides/provider_versions.html) only) Note: This field must be set “” if the global address is configured as a purpose of PRIVATE_SERVICE_CONNECT and addressType of INTERNAL.

Returned: success

metadataFilters

complex

Opaque filter criteria used by Loadbalancer to restrict routing configuration to a limited set xDS compliant clients. In their xDS requests to Loadbalancer, xDS clients present node metadata. If a match takes place, the relevant routing configuration is made available to those proxies.

For each metadataFilter in this list, if its filterMatchCriteria is set to MATCH_ANY, at least one of the filterLabels must match the corresponding label provided in the metadata. If its filterMatchCriteria is set to MATCH_ALL, then all of its filterLabels must match with corresponding labels in the provided metadata.

metadataFilters specified here can be overridden by those specified in the UrlMap that this ForwardingRule references.

metadataFilters only applies to Loadbalancers that have their loadBalancingScheme set to INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED.

Returned: success

filterLabels

complex

The list of label value pairs that must match labels in the provided metadata based on filterMatchCriteria This list must not be empty and can have at the most 64 entries.

Returned: success

name

string

Name of the metadata label. The length must be between 1 and 1024 characters, inclusive.

Returned: success

value

string

The value that the label must match. The value has a maximum length of 1024 characters.

Returned: success

filterMatchCriteria

string

Specifies how individual filterLabel matches within the list of filterLabels contribute towards the overall metadataFilter match.

MATCH_ANY - At least one of the filterLabels must have a matching label in the provided metadata.

MATCH_ALL - All filterLabels must have matching labels in the provided metadata.

Returned: success

name

string

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.

Returned: success

network

dictionary

This field is not used for external load balancing.

For INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED load balancing, this field identifies the network that the load balanced IP should belong to for this global forwarding rule. If this field is not specified, the default network will be used.

Returned: success

portRange

string

This field is used along with the target field for TargetHttpProxy, TargetHttpsProxy, TargetSslProxy, TargetTcpProxy, TargetVpnGateway, TargetPool, TargetInstance.

Applicable only when IPProtocol is TCP, UDP, or SCTP, only packets addressed to ports in the specified range will be forwarded to target.

Forwarding rules with the same [IPAddress, IPProtocol] pair must have disjoint port ranges.

Some types of forwarding target have constraints on the acceptable ports: * TargetHttpProxy: 80, 8080 * TargetHttpsProxy: 443 * TargetTcpProxy: 25, 43, 110, 143, 195, 443, 465, 587, 700, 993, 995, 1883, 5222 * TargetSslProxy: 25, 43, 110, 143, 195, 443, 465, 587, 700, 993, 995, 1883, 5222 * TargetVpnGateway: 500, 4500 .

Returned: success

target

string

The URL of the target resource to receive the matched traffic.

The forwarded traffic must be of a type appropriate to the target object.

For INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED load balancing, only HTTP and HTTPS targets are valid.

([Beta](https://terraform.io/docs/providers/google/guides/provider_versions.html) only) For global address with a purpose of PRIVATE_SERVICE_CONNECT and addressType of INTERNAL, only “all-apis” and “vpc-sc” are valid.

Returned: success
