REST Resource: targetHttpProxies

Resource: TargetHttpProxy

Represents a Target HTTP Proxy resource.

Google Compute Engine has two Target HTTP Proxy resources:

A target HTTP proxy is a component of GCP HTTP load balancers.

  • targetHttpProxies are used by external HTTP load balancers and Traffic Director.
  • regionTargetHttpProxies are used by internal HTTP load balancers.

Forwarding rules reference a target HTTP proxy, and the target proxy then references a URL map. For more information, read Using Target Proxies and Forwarding rule concepts.
