Synopsis

  • Represents an InterconnectAttachment (VLAN attachment) resource. For more information, see Creating VLAN Attachments.

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

admin_enabled

boolean

Whether the VLAN attachment is enabled or disabled. When using PARTNER type this will Pre-Activate the interconnect attachment .

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

auth_kind

string / required

The type of credential used.

Choices:

  • "application"

  • "machineaccount"

  • "serviceaccount"

bandwidth

string

Provisioned bandwidth capacity for the interconnect attachment.

For attachments of type DEDICATED, the user can set the bandwidth.

For attachments of type PARTNER, the Google Partner that is operating the interconnect must set the bandwidth.

Output only for PARTNER type, mutable for PARTNER_PROVIDER and DEDICATED, Defaults to BPS_10G .

Some valid choices include: “BPS_50M”, “BPS_100M”, “BPS_200M”, “BPS_300M”, “BPS_400M”, “BPS_500M”, “BPS_1G”, “BPS_2G”, “BPS_5G”, “BPS_10G”, “BPS_20G”, “BPS_50G”

candidate_subnets

list / elements=string

Up to 16 candidate prefixes that can be used to restrict the allocation of cloudRouterIpAddress and customerRouterIpAddress for this attachment.

All prefixes must be within link-local address space (169.254.0.0/16) and must be /29 or shorter (/28, /27, etc). Google will attempt to select an unused /29 from the supplied candidate prefix(es). The request will fail if all possible /29s are in use on Google’s edge. If not supplied, Google will randomly select an unused /29 from all of link-local space.

description

string

An optional description of this resource.

edge_availability_domain

string

Desired availability domain for the attachment. Only available for type PARTNER, at creation time. For improved reliability, customers should configure a pair of attachments with one per availability domain. The selected availability domain will be provided to the Partner via the pairing key so that the provisioned circuit will lie in the specified domain. If not specified, the value will default to AVAILABILITY_DOMAIN_ANY.

encryption

string

Indicates the user-supplied encryption option of this interconnect attachment: NONE is the default value, which means that the attachment carries unencrypted traffic. VMs can send traffic to, or receive traffic from, this type of attachment.

IPSEC indicates that the attachment carries only traffic encrypted by an IPsec device such as an HA VPN gateway. VMs cannot directly send traffic to, or receive traffic from, such an attachment. To use IPsec-encrypted Cloud Interconnect create the attachment using this option.

Not currently available publicly.

Some valid choices include: “NONE”, “IPSEC”

Default: "NONE"

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.

interconnect

string

URL of the underlying Interconnect object that this attachment’s traffic will traverse through. Required if type is DEDICATED, must not be set if type is PARTNER.

ipsec_internal_addresses

list / elements=dictionary

URL of addresses that have been reserved for the interconnect attachment, Used only for interconnect attachment that has the encryption option as IPSEC.

The addresses must be RFC 1918 IP address ranges. When creating HA VPN gateway over the interconnect attachment, if the attachment is configured to use an RFC 1918 IP address, then the VPN gateway’s IP address will be allocated from the IP address range specified here.

For example, if the HA VPN gateway’s interface 0 is paired to this interconnect attachment, then an RFC 1918 IP address for the VPN gateway interface 0 will be allocated from the IP address specified for this interconnect attachment.

If this field is not specified for interconnect attachment that has encryption option as IPSEC, later on when creating HA VPN gateway on this interconnect attachment, the HA VPN gateway’s IP address will be allocated from regional external IP address pool.

mtu

string

Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), in bytes, of packets passing through this interconnect attachment. Currently, only 1440 and 1500 are allowed. If not specified, the value will default to 1440.

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.

region

string / required

Region where the regional interconnect attachment resides.

router

dictionary / required

URL of the cloud router to be used for dynamic routing. This router must be in the same region as this InterconnectAttachment. The InterconnectAttachment will automatically connect the Interconnect to the network & region within which the Cloud Router is configured.

This field represents a link to a Router 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_router task and then set this router field to “{{ name-of-resource }}”

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"

type

string

The type of InterconnectAttachment you wish to create. Defaults to DEDICATED.

Some valid choices include: “DEDICATED”, “PARTNER”, “PARTNER_PROVIDER”

vlan_tag8021q
