REST Resource: sslCertificates

Resource: SslCertificate

Represents an SSL Certificate resource.

Google Compute Engine has two SSL Certificate resources:

The sslCertificates are used by:

  • external HTTPS load balancers
  • SSL proxy load balancers

The regionSslCertificates are used by internal HTTPS load balancers.

Optionally, certificate file contents that you upload can contain a set of up to five PEM-encoded certificates. The API call creates an object (sslCertificate) that holds this data. You can use SSL keys and certificates to secure connections to a load balancer. For more information, read Creating and using SSL certificates, SSL certificates quotas and limits, and Troubleshooting SSL certificates.

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.

description

string

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

certificate

string

A value read into memory from a certificate file. The certificate file must be in PEM format. The certificate chain must be no greater than 5 certs long. The chain must include at least one intermediate cert.

privateKey

string

A value read into memory from a write-only private key file. The private key file must be in PEM format. For security, only insert requests include this field.

managed

object

Configuration and status of a managed SSL certificate.

managed.domains[]

string

The domains for which a managed SSL certificate will be generated. Currently only single-domain certs are supported.

managed.status

enum

[Output only] Status of the managed certificate resource.

managed.domainStatus

map (key: string, value: enum)

[Output only] Detailed statuses of the domains specified for managed certificate resource.

An object containing a list of "key": value pairs. Example: { "name": "wrench", "mass": "1.3kg", "count": "3" }.

selfManaged

object

Configuration and status of a self-managed SSL certificate.

selfManaged.certificate

string

A local certificate file. The certificate must be in PEM format. The certificate chain must be no greater than 5 certs long. The chain must include at least one intermediate cert.

selfManaged.privateKey

string

A write-only private key in PEM format. Only insert requests will include this field.

type

enum

(Optional) Specifies the type of SSL certificate, either "SELF_MANAGED" or "MANAGED". If not specified, the certificate is self-managed and the fields certificate and privateKey are used.

subjectAlternativeNames[]

string

[Output Only] Domains associated with the certificate via Subject Alternative Name.

expireTime

string

[Output Only] Expire time of the certificate. RFC3339

region

string

[Output Only] URL of the region where the regional SSL Certificate resides. This field is not applicable to global SSL Certificate.

kind

string
