Google Compute Engine Route
This page shows how to write Terraform for Compute Engine Route and write them securely.
Terraform Example (google_compute_route)
Represents a Route resource. A route is a rule that specifies how certain packets should be handled by the virtual network. Routes are associated with virtual machines by tag, and the set of routes for a particular virtual machine is called its routing table. For each packet leaving a virtual machine, the system searches that virtual machine's routing table for a single best matching route. Routes match packets by destination IP address, preferring smaller or more specific ranges over larger ones. If there is a tie, the system selects the route with the smallest priority value. If there is still a tie, it uses the layer three and four packet headers to select just one of the remaining matching routes. The packet is then forwarded as specified by the next_hop field of the winning route -- either to another virtual machine destination, a virtual machine gateway or a Compute Engine-operated gateway. Packets that do not match any route in the sending virtual machine's routing table will be dropped. A Route resource must have exactly one specification of either nextHopGateway, nextHopInstance, nextHopIp, nextHopVpnTunnel, or nextHopIlb. To get more information about Route, see:
descriptionoptional - string
An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
dest_rangerequired - string
The destination range of outgoing packets that this route applies to. Only IPv4 is supported.
idoptionalcomputed - string
namerequired - string
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?' 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.
networkrequired - string
The network that this route applies to.
next_hop_gatewayoptional - string
URL to a gateway that should handle matching packets. Currently, you can only specify the internet gateway, using a full or partial valid URL: 'https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/project/global/gateways/default-internet-gateway' 'projects/project/global/gateways/default-internet-gateway' 'global/gateways/default-internet-gateway' The string 'default-internet-gateway'.
next_hop_ilboptional - string
The URL to a forwarding rule of type loadBalancingScheme=INTERNAL that should handle matching packets. You can only specify the forwarding rule as a partial or full URL. For example, the following are all valid URLs: https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/project/regions/region/forwardingRules/forwardingRule regions/region/forwardingRules/forwardingRule Note that this can only be used when the destinationRange is a public (non-RFC 1918) IP CIDR range.
next_hop_instanceoptional - string
URL to an instance that should handle matching packets. You can specify this as a full or partial URL. For example: 'https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/project/zones/zone/instances/instance' 'projects/project/zones/zone/instances/instance' 'zones/zone/instances/instance' Just the instance name, with the zone in 'next_hop_instance_zone'.
next_hop_instance_zoneoptional - string
The zone of the instance specified in next_hop_instance. Omit if next_hop_instance is specified as a URL.
next_hop_ipoptionalcomputed - string
Network IP address of an instance that should handle matching packets.
next_hop_networkrequiredcomputed - string
URL to a Network that should handle matching packets.
next_hop_vpn_tunneloptional - string
URL to a VpnTunnel that should handle matching packets.
priorityoptional - number
The priority of this route. Priority is used to break ties in cases where there is more than one matching route of equal prefix length. In the case of two routes with equal prefix length, the one with the lowest-numbered priority value wins. Default value is 1000. Valid range is 0 through 65535.
projectoptionalcomputed - string
self_linkrequiredcomputed - string
tagsoptional - set / string
A list of instance tags to which this route applies.
