Method: interconnectAttachments.insert

Creates an InterconnectAttachment in the specified project using the data included in the request.

HTTP request

POST https://compute.googleapis.com/compute/beta/projects/{project}/regions/{region}/interconnectAttachments

The URL uses Google API HTTP annotation syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

region

string

Name of the region for this request.

Query parameters

Parameters
requestId

string

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).

Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

Fields
resource

object

resource.description

string

An optional description of this resource.

resource.selfLink

string

[Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.

resource.id

string (fixed64 format)

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

resource.creationTimestamp

string

[Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.

resource.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])? 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.

resource.interconnect

string

URL of the underlying Interconnect object that this attachment's traffic will traverse through.

Authorization requires the following Google IAM permission on the specified resource interconnect:

  • compute.interconnects.use

resource.router

string

URL of the cloud router to be used for dynamic routing. This router must be in the same region as this InterconnectAttachment. The InterconnectAttachment will automatically connect the Interconnect to the network & region within which the Cloud Router is configured.

Authorization requires the following Google IAM permission on the specified resource router:

  • compute.routers.use

resource.region

string

[Output Only] URL of the region where the regional interconnect attachment resides. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. It is not settable as a field in the request body.

resource.googleReferenceId

string

[Output Only] Google reference ID, to be used when raising support tickets with Google or otherwise to debug backend connectivity issues.

resource.privateInterconnectInfo

object

[Output Only] Information specific to an InterconnectAttachment. This property is populated if the interconnect that this is attached to is of type DEDICATED.

resource.privateInterconnectInfo.tag8021q

number

[Output Only] 802.1q encapsulation tag to be used for traffic between Google and the customer, going to and from this network and region.

resource.operationalStatus

enum

[Output Only] The current status of whether or not this interconnect attachment is functional.

resource.cloudRouterIpAddress

string

[Output Only] IPv4 address + prefix length to be configured on Cloud Router Interface for this interconnect attachment.

resource.customerRouterIpAddress

string

[Output Only] IPv4 address + prefix length to be configured on the customer router subinterface for this interconnect attachment.

resource.type

enum

resource.adminEnabled

boolean

Determines whether this Attachment will carry packets. Not present for PARTNER_PROVIDER.

resource.vlanTag8021q

number

Available only for DEDICATED and PARTNER_PROVIDER. Desired VLAN tag for this attachment, in the range 2-4094. This field refers to 802.1q VLAN tag, also known as IEEE 802.1Q Only specified at creation time.

resource.candidateSubnets[]

string

Up to 16 candidate prefixes that can be used to restrict the allocation of cloudRouterIpAddress and customerRouterIpAddress for this attachment. All prefixes must be within link-local address space (169.254.0.0/16) and must be /29 or shorter (/28, /27, etc). Google will attempt to select an unused /29 from the supplied candidate prefix(es). The request will fail if all possible /29s are in use on Google’s edge. If not supplied, Google will randomly select an unused /29 from all of link-local space.

resource.labels

map (key: string, value: string)

Labels to apply to this InterconnectAttachment resource. These can be later modified by the setLabels method. Each label key/value 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" }.

resource.labelFingerprint

string (bytes format)

A fingerprint for the labels being applied to this InterconnectAttachment, 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.

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

A base64-encoded string.

resource.kind

string

[Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#interconnectAttachment for interconnect attachments.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains data with the following structure:
