  • requests >= 2.18.4
  • google-auth >= 1.3.0

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
addons_config
-
Configurations for the various addons available to run in the cluster.
horizontal_pod_autoscaling
-
Configuration for the horizontal pod autoscaling feature, which increases or decreases the number of replica pods a replication controller has based on the resource usage of the existing pods.
disabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether the Horizontal Pod Autoscaling feature is enabled in the cluster. When enabled, it ensures that a Heapster pod is running in the cluster, which is also used by the Cloud Monitoring service.
http_load_balancing
-
Configuration for the HTTP (L7) load balancing controller addon, which makes it easy to set up HTTP load balancers for services in a cluster.
disabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Whether the HTTP Load Balancing controller is enabled in the cluster. When enabled, it runs a small pod in the cluster that manages the load balancers.
auth_kind
string / required
    Choices:
  • application
  • machineaccount
  • serviceaccount
The type of credential used.
cluster_ipv4_cidr
-
The IP address range of the container pods in this cluster, in CIDR notation (e.g. 10.96.0.0/14). Leave blank to have one automatically chosen or specify a /14 block in 10.0.0.0/8.
description
-
An optional description of this cluster.
initial_node_count
- / required
The number of nodes to create in this cluster. You must ensure that your Compute Engine resource quota is sufficient for this number of instances. You must also have available firewall and routes quota. For requests, this field should only be used in lieu of a "nodePool" object, since this configuration (along with the "nodeConfig") will be used to create a "NodePool" object with an auto-generated name. Do not use this and a nodePool at the same time.
location
- / required
added in 2.8
The location where the cluster is deployed.

aliases: zone
logging_service
-
    Choices:
  • logging.googleapis.com
  • none
The logging service the cluster should use to write logs. Currently available options: logging.googleapis.com - the Google Cloud Logging service.
none - no logs will be exported from the cluster.
if left as an empty string,logging.googleapis.com will be used.
master_auth
-
The authentication information for accessing the master endpoint.
password
-
The password to use for HTTP basic authentication to the master endpoint. Because the master endpoint is open to the Internet, you should create a strong password.
username
-
The username to use for HTTP basic authentication to the master endpoint.
monitoring_service
-
    Choices:
  • monitoring.googleapis.com
  • none
The monitoring service the cluster should use to write metrics.
Currently available options: monitoring.googleapis.com - the Google Cloud Monitoring service.
none - no metrics will be exported from the cluster.
if left as an empty string, monitoring.googleapis.com will be used.
name
-
The name of this cluster. The name must be unique within this project and location, and can be up to 40 characters. Must be Lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens only. Must start with a letter. Must end with a number or a letter.
network
-
The name of the Google Compute Engine network to which the cluster is connected. If left unspecified, the default network will be used.
node_config
-
Parameters used in creating the cluster's nodes.
For requests, this field should only be used in lieu of a "nodePool" object, since this configuration (along with the "initialNodeCount") will be used to create a "NodePool" object with an auto-generated name. Do not use this and a nodePool at the same time. For responses, this field will be populated with the node configuration of the first node pool. If unspecified, the defaults are used.
disk_size_gb
-
Size of the disk attached to each node, specified in GB. The smallest allowed disk size is 10GB. If unspecified, the default disk size is 100GB.
image_type
-
The image type to use for this node. Note that for a given image type, the latest version of it will be used.
labels
-
The map of Kubernetes labels (key/value pairs) to be applied to each node. These will added in addition to any default label(s) that Kubernetes may apply to the node. In case of conflict in label keys, the applied set may differ depending on the Kubernetes version -- it's best to assume the behavior is undefined and conflicts should be avoided. For more information, including usage and the valid values, see: http://kubernetes.io/v1.1/docs/user-guide/labels.html An object containing a list of "key": value pairs.
Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.
local_ssd_count
-
The number of local SSD disks to be attached to the node.
The limit for this value is dependant upon the maximum number of disks available on a machine per zone. See: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/disks/local-ssd#local_ssd_limits for more information.
machine_type
-
The name of a Google Compute Engine machine type (e.g.
n1-standard-1). If unspecified, the default machine type is n1-standard-1.
metadata
-
The metadata key/value pairs assigned to instances in the cluster.
Keys must conform to the regexp [a-zA-Z0-9-_]+ and be less than 128 bytes in length. These are reflected as part of a URL in the metadata server. Additionally, to avoid ambiguity, keys must not conflict with any other metadata keys for the project or be one of the four reserved keys: "instance-template", "kube-env", "startup-script", and "user-data" Values are free-form strings, and only have meaning as interpreted by the image running in the instance. The only restriction placed on them is that each value's size must be less than or equal to 32 KB.
The total size of all keys and values must be less than 512 KB.
An object containing a list of "key": value pairs.
Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

https://www.googleapis.com/auth/devstorage.read_only is required for communicating with gcr.io (the Google Container Registry).
If unspecified, no scopes are added, unless Cloud Logging or Cloud Monitoring are enabled, in which case their required scopes will be added.
