Method: regionHealthCheckServices.insert

Creates a regional HealthCheckService resource in the specified project and region using the data included in the request.

HTTP request

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

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
project

string

Project ID for this request.

region

string

Name of the region scoping 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
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. 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.

description

string

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

region

string

[Output Only] URL of the region where the health check service resides. This field is not applicable to global health check services. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. It is not settable as a field in the request body.

healthStatusAggregationStrategy
(deprecated)

enum

This field is deprecated. Use healthStatusAggregationPolicy instead.

Policy for how the results from multiple health checks for the same endpoint are aggregated.

  • NO_AGGREGATION. An EndpointHealth message is returned for each backend in the health check service.
  • AND. If any backend's health check reports UNHEALTHY, then UNHEALTHY is the HealthState of the entire health check service. If all backend's are healthy, the HealthState of the health check service is HEALTHY.
.

healthStatusAggregationPolicy

enum

Optional. Policy for how the results from multiple health checks for the same endpoint are aggregated. Defaults to NO_AGGREGATION if unspecified.

  • NO_AGGREGATION. An EndpointHealth message is returned for each <endpoint, health check> pair in the health check service.
  • AND. If any health check of an endpoint reports UNHEALTHY, then UNHEALTHY is the HealthState of the endpoint. If all health checks report HEALTHY, the HealthState of the endpoint is HEALTHY.
.

healthChecks[]

string

A list of URLs to the HealthCheck resources. Must have at least one HealthCheck, and not more than 10. HealthCheck resources must have portSpecification=USE_SERVING_PORT or portSpecification=USE_FIXED_PORT. For regional HealthCheckService, the HealthCheck must be regional and in the same region. For global HealthCheckService, HealthCheck must be global. Mix of regional and global HealthChecks is not supported. Multiple regional HealthChecks must belong to the same region. Regional HealthChecks must belong to the same region as zones of NEGs.

Authorization requires the following IAM permission on the specified resource healthChecks:

  • compute.regionHealthChecks.useReadOnly
networkEndpointGroups[]

string

A list of URLs to the NetworkEndpointGroup resources. Must not have more than 100. For regional HealthCheckService, NEGs must be in zones in the region of the HealthCheckService.

Authorization requires the following IAM permission on the specified resource networkEndpointGroups:

  • compute.networkEndpointGroups.use
notificationEndpoints[]

string

A list of URLs to the NotificationEndpoint resources. Must not have more than 10. A list of endpoints for receiving notifications of change in health status. For regional HealthCheckService, NotificationEndpoint must be regional and in the same region. For global HealthCheckService, NotificationEndpoint must be global.

Authorization requires the following IAM permission on the specified resource notificationEndpoints:

  • compute.regionNotificationEndpoints.use
fingerprint

string (bytes format)

Fingerprint of this resource. A hash of the contents stored in this object. This field is used in optimistic locking. This field will be ignored when inserting a HealthCheckService. An up-to-date fingerprint must be provided in order to patch/update the HealthCheckService; Otherwise, the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet. To see the latest fingerprint, make a get() request to retrieve the HealthCheckService.

A base64-encoded string.

kind

string

[Output only] Type of the resource. Always compute#healthCheckServicefor health check services.

Response body

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

Represents an Operation resource.

Google Compute Engine has three Operation resources:

You can use an operation resource to manage asynchronous API requests. For more information, read Handling API responses.

Operations can be global, regional or zonal.

  • For global operations, use the globalOperations resource.
  • For regional operations, use the regionOperations resource.
  • For zonal operations, use the zonalOperations resource.

For more information, read Global, Regional, and Zonal Resources.
