description
-
An optional description of this resource.
name
- / 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.

Specifies the type of proxy header to append before sending data to the backend, either NONE or PROXY_V1. The default is NONE.
scopes
list
Array of scopes to be used.
service
- / required
A reference to the BackendService resource.
This field represents a link to a BackendService 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_backend_service task and then set this service field to "{{ name-of-resource }}"
service_account_contents
string
A string representing the contents of a Service Account JSON file.
This should not be passed in as a dictionary, but a string that has the exact contents of a service account json file (valid JSON)
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
