Represents an IP Address resource.

Google Compute Engine has two IP Address resources:

Fields
id

string (uint64 format)

[Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.

creationTimestamp

string

[Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.

name

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]([-a-z0-9]*[a-z0-9])?. The first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters (except for the last character) must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit. The last character must be a lowercase letter or digit.

description

string

An optional description of this resource. Provide this field when you create the resource.

address

string

The static IP address represented by this resource.

prefixLength

integer

The prefix length if the resource represents an IP range.

status

enum

[Output Only] The status of the address, which can be one of RESERVING, RESERVED, or IN_USE. An address that is RESERVING is currently in the process of being reserved. A RESERVED address is currently reserved and available to use. An IN_USE address is currently being used by another resource and is not available.

region

string

[Output Only] The URL of the region where a regional address resides. For regional addresses, you must specify the region as a path parameter in the HTTP request URL. This field is not applicable to global addresses.

users[]

string

[Output Only] The URLs of the resources that are using this address.

networkTier

enum

This signifies the networking tier used for configuring this address and can only take the following values: PREMIUM or STANDARD. Internal IP addresses are always Premium Tier; global external IP addresses are always Premium Tier; regional external IP addresses can be either Standard or Premium Tier.

If this field is not specified, it is assumed to be PREMIUM.

labels

map (key: string, value: string)

Labels for this resource. These can only be added or modified by the setLabels method. Each label key/value pair must comply with RFC1035. Label values may be empty.

An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

labelFingerprint

string (bytes format)

A fingerprint for the labels being applied to this Address, which is essentially a hash of the labels set used for optimistic locking. The fingerprint is initially generated by Compute Engine and changes after every request to modify or update labels. You must always provide an up-to-date fingerprint hash in order to update or change labels, otherwise the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet.

To see the latest fingerprint, make a get() request to retrieve an Address.

A base64-encoded string.

ipVersion

enum

The IP version that will be used by this address. Valid options are IPV4 or IPV6. This can only be specified for a global address.

addressType

enum

The type of address to reserve, either INTERNAL or EXTERNAL. If unspecified, defaults to EXTERNAL.

purpose

enum

The purpose of this resource, which can be one of the following values:
