gcp_compute_region_disk – Creates a GCP RegionDisk

New in version 2.8.

Synopsis

  • Persistent disks are durable storage devices that function similarly to the physical disks in a desktop or a server. Compute Engine manages the hardware behind these devices to ensure data redundancy and optimize performance for you. Persistent disks are available as either standard hard disk drives (HDD) or solid-state drives (SSD).
  • Persistent disks are located independently from your virtual machine instances, so you can detach or move persistent disks to keep your data even after you delete your instances. Persistent disk performance scales automatically with size, so you can resize your existing persistent disks or add more persistent disks to an instance to meet your performance and storage space requirements.
  • Add a persistent disk to your instance when you need reliable and affordable storage with consistent performance characteristics.

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 Choices/Defaults Comments
auth_kind
string / required
    Choices:
  • application
  • machineaccount
  • serviceaccount
The type of credential used.
description
string
An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
disk_encryption_key
dictionary
Encrypts the disk using a customer-supplied encryption key.
After you encrypt a disk with a customer-supplied key, you must provide the same key if you use the disk later (e.g. to create a disk snapshot or an image, or to attach the disk to a virtual machine).
Customer-supplied encryption keys do not protect access to metadata of the disk.
If you do not provide an encryption key when creating the disk, then the disk will be encrypted using an automatically generated key and you do not need to provide a key to use the disk later.
raw_key
string
Specifies a 256-bit customer-supplied encryption key, encoded in RFC 4648 base64 to either encrypt or decrypt 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.
labels
dictionary
Labels to apply to this disk. A list of key->value pairs.
licenses
list
Any applicable publicly visible licenses.
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.
physical_block_size_bytes
integer
Physical block size of the persistent disk, in bytes. If not present in a request, a default value is used. Currently supported sizes are 4096 and 16384, other sizes may be added in the future.
If an unsupported value is requested, the error message will list the supported values for the caller's project.
project
string
The Google Cloud Platform project to use.
region
string / required
A reference to the region where the disk resides.
replica_zones
list / required
URLs of the zones where the disk should be replicated to.
scopes
list
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.
size_gb
integer
Size of the persistent disk, specified in GB. You can specify this field when creating a persistent disk using the sourceImage or sourceSnapshot parameter, or specify it alone to create an empty persistent disk.
If you specify this field along with sourceImage or sourceSnapshot, the value of sizeGb must not be less than the size of the sourceImage or the size of the snapshot.
source_snapshot
dictionary
The source snapshot used to create this disk. You can provide this as a partial or full URL to the resource.
This field represents a link to a Snapshot 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_snapshot task and then set this source_snapshot field to "{{ name-of-resource }}"
source_snapshot_encryption_key
dictionary
The customer-supplied encryption key of the source snapshot. Required if the source snapshot is protected by a customer-supplied encryption key.
raw_key
string
Specifies a 256-bit customer-supplied encryption key, encoded in RFC 4648 base64 to either encrypt or decrypt this resource.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the given object should exist in GCP
type
string
URL of the disk type resource describing which disk type to use to create the disk. Provide this when creating the disk.
