  • python >= 2.6
  • requests >= 2.18.4
  • google-auth >= 1.3.0

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
alternative_location_id
-
Only applicable to STANDARD_HA tier which protects the instance against zonal failures by provisioning it across two zones.
If provided, it must be a different zone from the one provided in [locationId].
auth_kind
string / required
    Choices:
  • application
  • machineaccount
  • serviceaccount
The type of credential used.
authorized_network
-
The full name of the Google Compute Engine network to which the instance is connected. If left unspecified, the default network will be used.
display_name
-
An arbitrary and optional user-provided name for the instance.
labels
-
Resource labels to represent user provided metadata.
location_id
-
The zone where the instance will be provisioned. If not provided, the service will choose a zone for the instance. For STANDARD_HA tier, instances will be created across two zones for protection against zonal failures. If [alternativeLocationId] is also provided, it must be different from [locationId].
memory_size_gb
- / required
Redis memory size in GiB.
name
- / required
The ID of the instance or a fully qualified identifier for the instance. .
project
string
The Google Cloud Platform project to use.
redis_configs
-
Redis configuration parameters, according to http://redis.io/topics/config.
redis_version
-
The version of Redis software. If not provided, latest supported version will be used. Updating the version will perform an upgrade/downgrade to the new version. Currently, the supported values are REDIS_3_2 for Redis 3.2.
region
- / required
The name of the Redis region of the instance.
reserved_ip_range
-
The CIDR range of internal addresses that are reserved for this instance. If not provided, the service will choose an unused /29 block, for example, 10.0.0.0/29 or 192.168.0.0/29. Ranges must be unique and non-overlapping with existing subnets in an authorized network.
scopes
list
Array of scopes to be used.
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
The path of a Service Account JSON file if serviceaccount is selected as type.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the given object should exist in GCP
tier
-
    Choices:
  • BASIC ←
  • STANDARD_HA
The service tier of the instance. Must be one of these values: - BASIC: standalone instance - STANDARD_HA: highly available primary/replica instances .

  • For authentication, you can set service_account_file using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set service_account_email using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_EMAIL env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set service_account_contents using the GCP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT_CONTENTS env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set auth_kind using the GCP_AUTH_KIND env variable.
  • For authentication, you can set scopes using the GCP_SCOPES env variable.
  • Environment variables values will only be used if the playbook values are not set.
  • The service_account_email and service_account_file options are mutually exclusive.
