Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
items
complex
always
List of items

  affinityCookieTtlSec
integer
success
Lifetime of cookies in seconds if session_affinity is GENERATED_COOKIE. If set to 0, the cookie is non-persistent and lasts only until the end of the browser session (or equivalent). The maximum allowed value for TTL is one day.
When the load balancing scheme is INTERNAL, this field is not used.

  backends
complex
success
The list of backends that serve this BackendService.

    balancingMode
string
success
Specifies the balancing mode for this backend.
For global HTTP(S) or TCP/SSL load balancing, the default is UTILIZATION. Valid values are UTILIZATION, RATE (for HTTP(S)) and CONNECTION (for TCP/SSL).
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

    capacityScaler
string
success
A multiplier applied to the group's maximum servicing capacity (based on UTILIZATION, RATE or CONNECTION).
Default value is 1, which means the group will serve up to 100% of its configured capacity (depending on balancingMode). A setting of 0 means the group is completely drained, offering 0% of its available Capacity. Valid range is [0.0,1.0].
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

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

    group
dictionary
success
This instance group defines the list of instances that serve traffic. Member virtual machine instances from each instance group must live in the same zone as the instance group itself.
No two backends in a backend service are allowed to use same Instance Group resource.
When the BackendService has load balancing scheme INTERNAL, the instance group must be in a zone within the same region as the BackendService.

    maxConnections
integer
success
The max number of simultaneous connections for the group. Can be used with either CONNECTION or UTILIZATION balancing modes.
For CONNECTION mode, either maxConnections or maxConnectionsPerInstance must be set.
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

    maxConnectionsPerInstance
integer
success
The max number of simultaneous connections that a single backend instance can handle. This is used to calculate the capacity of the group. Can be used in either CONNECTION or UTILIZATION balancing modes.
For CONNECTION mode, either maxConnections or maxConnectionsPerInstance must be set.
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

    maxRate
integer
success
The max requests per second (RPS) of the group.
Can be used with either RATE or UTILIZATION balancing modes, but required if RATE mode. For RATE mode, either maxRate or maxRatePerInstance must be set.
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

    maxRatePerInstance
string
success
The max requests per second (RPS) that a single backend instance can handle. This is used to calculate the capacity of the group. Can be used in either balancing mode. For RATE mode, either maxRate or maxRatePerInstance must be set.
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

    maxUtilization
string
success
Used when balancingMode is UTILIZATION. This ratio defines the CPU utilization target for the group. The default is 0.8. Valid range is [0.0, 1.0].
This cannot be used for internal load balancing.

  cdnPolicy
complex
success
Cloud CDN configuration for this BackendService.

    cacheKeyPolicy
complex
success
The CacheKeyPolicy for this CdnPolicy.

      includeHost
boolean
success
If true requests to different hosts will be cached separately.

      includeProtocol
boolean
success
If true, http and https requests will be cached separately.

      includeQueryString
boolean
success
If true, include query string parameters in the cache key according to query_string_whitelist and query_string_blacklist. If neither is set, the entire query string will be included.
If false, the query string will be excluded from the cache key entirely.

      queryStringBlacklist
list
success
Names of query string parameters to exclude in cache keys.
All other parameters will be included. Either specify query_string_whitelist or query_string_blacklist, not both.
'&' and '=' will be percent encoded and not treated as delimiters.

      queryStringWhitelist
list
success
Names of query string parameters to include in cache keys.
All other parameters will be excluded. Either specify query_string_whitelist or query_string_blacklist, not both.
'&' and '=' will be percent encoded and not treated as delimiters.

    signedUrlCacheMaxAgeSec
integer
success
Maximum number of seconds the response to a signed URL request will be considered fresh, defaults to 1hr (3600s). 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.

  connectionDraining
complex
success
Settings for connection draining .

    drainingTimeoutSec
integer
success
Time for which instance will be drained (not accept new connections, but still work to finish started).

  creationTimestamp
string

  description
string

success
Fingerprint of this resource. A hash of the contents stored in this object. This field is used in optimistic locking.

  healthChecks
list
success
The list of URLs to the HttpHealthCheck or HttpsHealthCheck resource for health checking this BackendService. Currently at most one health check can be specified, and a health check is required.
For internal load balancing, a URL to a HealthCheck resource must be specified instead.

  iap

  id
integer
success
The unique identifier for the resource.

  loadBalancingScheme
string
success
Indicates whether the backend service will be used with internal or external load balancing. A backend service created for one type of load balancing cannot be used with the other. One of `INTERNAL` or `EXTERNAL`. Defaults to `EXTERNAL`.

  name
string
success
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.

  portName
string
success
Name of backend port. The same name should appear in the instance groups referenced by this service. Required when the load balancing scheme is EXTERNAL.
When the load balancing scheme is INTERNAL, this field is not used.

  protocol
string
success
The protocol this BackendService uses to communicate with backends.
Possible values are HTTP, HTTPS, TCP, and SSL. The default is HTTP.
For internal load balancing, the possible values are TCP and UDP, and the default is TCP.

  securityPolicy
string
success
The security policy associated with this backend service.

  sessionAffinity
string
success
Type of session affinity to use. The default is NONE.
When the load balancing scheme is EXTERNAL, can be NONE, CLIENT_IP, or GENERATED_COOKIE.
When the load balancing scheme is INTERNAL, can be NONE, CLIENT_IP, CLIENT_IP_PROTO, or CLIENT_IP_PORT_PROTO.
When the protocol is UDP, this field is not used.

  timeoutSec
integer
success
How many seconds to wait for the backend before considering it a failed request. Default is 30 seconds. Valid range is [1, 86400].
