name
- / required
Name of the Managed Instance Group.
named_ports
-
added in 2.3
Define named ports that backend services can forward data to. Format is a a list of name:port dictionaries.
project_id
-
GCE project ID
service_account_email
-
service account email
size
-
Size of Managed Instance Group. If MIG already exists, it will be resized to the number provided here. Required for creating MIGs.
state
-
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present ←
desired state of the resource
template
-
Instance Template to be used in creating the VMs. See https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instance-templates to learn more about Instance Templates. Required for creating MIGs.
zone
- / required
The GCE zone to use for this Managed Instance Group.

Notes

Note

  • Resizing and Recreating VM are also supported.
  • An existing instance template is required in order to create a Managed Instance Group.

Examples

# Following playbook creates, rebuilds instances, resizes and then deletes a MIG.
# Notes:
# - Two valid Instance Templates must exist in your GCE project in order to run
#   this playbook.  Change the fields to match the templates used in your
#   project.
# - The use of the 'pause' module is not required, it is just for convenience.
