Method: targetHttpProxies.patch

Patches the specified TargetHttpProxy resource with the data included in the request. This method supports PATCH semantics and uses JSON merge patch format and processing rules.

HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters



Project ID for this request.



Name of the TargetHttpProxy 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). end_interface: MixerMutationRequestBuilder

Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

JSON representation
  "id": string,
  "creationTimestamp": string,
  "name": string,

  "selfLink": string,
  "urlMap": string,
  "region": string,
  "proxyBind": boolean,
  "httpFilters": [
  "fingerprint": string,
  "kind": string

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.



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



URL to the UrlMap resource that defines the mapping from URL to the BackendService.

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

  • compute.urlMaps.use


[Output Only] URL of the region where the regional Target HTTP Proxy resides. This field is not applicable to global Target HTTP Proxies.



This field only applies when the forwarding rule that references this target proxy has a loadBalancingScheme set to INTERNAL_SELF_MANAGED.

When this field is set to true, Envoy proxies set up inbound traffic interception and bind to the IP address and port specified in the forwarding rule. This is generally useful when using Traffic Director to configure Envoy as a gateway or middle proxy (in other words, not a sidecar proxy). The Envoy proxy listens for inbound requests and handles requests when it receives them.

The default is false.



URLs to networkservices.HttpFilter resources enabled for xDS clients using this configuration. For example, Only filters that handle outbound connection and stream events may be specified. These filters work in conjunction with a default set of HTTP filters that may already be configured by Traffic Director. Traffic Director will determine the final location of these filters within xDS configuration based on the name of the HTTP filter. If Traffic Director positions multiple filters at the same location, those filters will be in the same
