Method: globalForwardingRules.patch

Updates the specified forwarding rule with the data included in the request. This method supports PATCH semantics and uses the JSON merge patch format and processing rules. Currently, you can only patch the networkTier field.

HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters



Project ID for this request.



Name of the ForwardingRule resource to patch.

Query parameters



An optional request ID to identify requests. Specify a unique request ID so that if you must retry your request, the server will know to ignore the request if it has already been completed.

For example, consider a situation where you make an initial request and the request times out. If you make the request again with the same request ID, the server can check if original operation with the same request ID was received, and if so, will ignore the second request. This prevents clients from accidentally creating duplicate commitments.

The request ID must be a valid UUID with the exception that zero UUID is not supported (00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000).

string (uint64 format)

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



[Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.



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])? 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.

For Private Service Connect forwarding rules that forward traffic to Google APIs, the forwarding rule name must be a 1-20 characters string with lowercase letters and numbers and must start with a letter.
