Creates a new address group in a given project and location.

HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Path parameters



Required. The parent resource of the AddressGroup. Must be in the format projects/*/locations/{location}.

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

  • networksecurity.addressGroups.create

Query parameters



Required. Short name of the AddressGroup resource to be created. This value should be 1-63 characters long, containing only letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores, and should not start with a number. E.g. "authz_policy".

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

  • networksecurity.addressGroups.create


Optional. 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. The server will guarantee that for at least 60 minutes since the first request.

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).
