Resource: ExternalVpnGateway

Represents an external VPN gateway.

External VPN gateway is the on-premises VPN gateway(s) or another cloud provider's VPN gateway that connects to your Google Cloud VPN gateway.

To create a highly available VPN from Google Cloud Platform to your VPN gateway or another cloud provider's VPN gateway, you must create a external VPN gateway resource with information about the other gateway.

For more information about using external VPN gateways, see Creating an HA VPN gateway and tunnel pair to a peer VPN.
