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_region_target_https_proxy.

Synopsis

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

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. 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

The region where the regional proxy resides.

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.

ssl_certificates

list / elements=dictionary / required

A list of RegionSslCertificate resources that are used to authenticate connections between users and the load balancer. Currently, exactly one SSL certificate must be specified.

state

string

Whether the given object should exist in GCP

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

url_map

dictionary / required

A reference to the RegionUrlMap resource that defines the mapping from URL to the RegionBackendService.

This field represents a link to a RegionUrlMap 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_region_url_map task and then set this url_map field to “{{ name-of-resource }}”
