Fields
id

string (fixed64 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])? 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 VPN tunnel resides. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. It is not settable as a field in the request body.

targetVpnGateway

string

URL of the Target VPN gateway with which this VPN tunnel is associated. Provided by the client when the VPN tunnel is created.

router

string

URL of router resource to be used for dynamic routing.

peerIp

string

IP address of the peer VPN gateway. Only IPv4 is supported.

sharedSecret

string

Shared secret used to set the secure session between the Cloud VPN gateway and the peer VPN gateway.

sharedSecretHash

string

Hash of the shared secret.

status

enum

[Output Only] The status of the VPN tunnel.

ikeVersion

number

IKE protocol version to use when establishing the VPN tunnel with peer VPN gateway. Acceptable IKE versions are 1 or 2. Default version is 2.

detailedStatus

string

[Output Only] Detailed status message for the VPN tunnel.

localTrafficSelector[]

string

Local traffic selector to use when establishing the VPN tunnel with peer VPN gateway. The value should be a CIDR formatted string, for example: 192.168.0.0/16. The ranges should be disjoint. Only IPv4 is supported.

remoteTrafficSelector[]

string

Remote traffic selectors to use when establishing the VPN tunnel with peer VPN gateway. The value should be a CIDR formatted string, for example: 192.168.0.0/16. The ranges should be disjoint. Only IPv4 is supported.

labels

map (key: string, value: string)

Labels to apply to this VpnTunnel. These can be later 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 VpnTunnel, 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 a VpnTunnel.

A base64-encoded string.

kind

string

[Output Only] Type of resource. Always compute#vpnTunnel for VPN tunnels.
