Method: firewallPolicies.patch

Patches the specified policy with the data included in the request.

HTTP request

PATCH https://compute.googleapis.com/compute/v1/locations/global/{resourceId=firewallPolicies/*}

The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters

Parameters
resourceId

string

Name of the firewall policy to update.

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 (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

[Output Only] Name of the resource. It is a numeric ID allocated by GCP which uniquely identifies the Firewall Policy.

description

string

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

rules[]

object

A list of rules that belong to this policy. There must always be a default rule (rule with priority 2147483647 and match "*"). If no rules are provided when creating a firewall policy, a default rule with action "allow" will be added.

rules[].description

string

An optional description for this resource.

rules[].priority

integer

An integer indicating the priority of a rule in the list. The priority must be a positive value between 0 and 2147483647. Rules are evaluated from highest to lowest priority where 0 is the highest priority and 2147483647 is the lowest prority.

rules[].match

object

A match condition that incoming traffic is evaluated against. If it evaluates to true, the corresponding 'action' is enforced.

rules[].match.srcIpRanges[]

string

CIDR IP address range. Maximum number of source CIDR IP ranges allowed is 256.

rules[].match.destIpRanges[]

string

CIDR IP address range. Maximum number of destination CIDR IP ranges allowed is 256.

rules[].match.layer4Configs[]

object

Pairs of IP protocols and ports that the rule should match.

rules[].match.layer4Configs[].ipProtocol

string

The IP protocol to which this rule applies. The protocol type is required when creating a firewall rule. This value can either be one of the following well known protocol strings (tcp, udp, icmp, esp, ah, ipip, sctp), or the IP protocol number.

rules[].match.layer4Configs[].ports[]

string

An optional list of ports to which this rule applies. This field is only applicable for UDP or TCP protocol. Each entry must be either an integer or a range. If not specified, this rule applies to connections through any port.

Example inputs include: ["22"], ["80","443"], and ["12345-12349"].

rules[].match.srcSecureLabels[]
(deprecated)

string

globalOperations.list of firewall label values, which should be matched at the source of the traffic. Maximum number of source label values allowed is 256.

rules[].action

string

The Action to perform when the client connection triggers the rule. Can currently be either "allow" or "deny()" where valid values for status are 403, 404, and 502.

rules[].direction

enum

The direction in which this rule applies.

rules[].targetResources[]

string

A list of network resource URLs to which this rule applies. This field allows you to control which network's VMs get this rule. If this field is left blank, all VMs within the organization will receive the rule.

rules[].enableLogging

boolean

Denotes whether to enable logging for a particular rule. If logging is enabled, logs will be exported to the configured export destination in Stackdriver. Logs may be exported to BigQuery or Pub/Sub. Note: you cannot enable logging on "goto_next" rules.

rules[].ruleTupleCount

integer

[Output Only] Calculation of the complexity of a single firewall policy rule.

rules[].targetServiceAccounts[]

string

A list of service accounts indicating the sets of instances that are applied with this rule.

rules[].targetSecureLabels[]
(deprecated)

string

A list of secure labels that controls which instances the firewall rule applies to. If targetSecureLabel are specified, then the firewall rule applies only to instances in the VPC network that have one of those secure labels. targetSecureLabel may not be set at the same time as targetServiceAccounts. If neither targetServiceAccounts nor targetSecureLabel are specified, the firewall rule applies to all instances on the specified network. Maximum number of target label values allowed is 256.

rules[].disabled

boolean

Denotes whether the firewall policy rule is disabled. When set to true, the firewall policy rule is not enforced and traffic behaves as if it did not exist. If this is unspecified, the firewall policy rule will be enabled.

rules[].kind

string

[Output only] Type of the resource. Always compute#firewallPolicyRule for firewall policy rules

fingerprint

string (bytes format)

Specifies a fingerprint for this resource, which is essentially a hash of the metadata's contents and used for optimistic locking. The fingerprint is initially generated by Compute Engine and changes after every request to modify or update metadata. You must always provide an up-to-date fingerprint hash in order to update or change metadata, otherwise the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet.

To see the latest fingerprint, make get() request to the firewall policy.

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.

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.
