If you are using manually created gRPC libraries to make calls to
Cloud Key Management Service, you must specify a
x-google-request-params value in
the metadata, or header, of the call. The proper use of
x-google-request-params will route the call to the appropriate region for
your Cloud KMS resources.
x-google-request-params value to a field in the method's request as
shown in the following table.
Setting the request field
The following examples show where to specify the resource name in various methods. Replace the text styled as place-holder with the actual values used in your Cloud KMS resource IDs.
If you are making a call to Decrypt, you need to populate the following fields in your request:
name: 'projects/project-id/locations/location/keyRings/key-ring/cryptoKeys/key-name/' ciphertext: 'iQALWM/r6alAxQm0VQe3...'
The value assigned to the
name field is the resource name of your CryptoKey.
To properly route the call, you must also include this resource name in the
call metadata, in the following form:
If you are making a call to CreateKeyRing, you need to populate the following fields in your request:
parent: 'projects/project-id/locations/location/' key_ring_id: 'myKeyRing' ...
The call metadata also needs to contain the
parent resource name:
If you are making a call to UpdateCryptoKey, you need to populate the following fields in your request:
name: 'projects/project-id/locations/location/keyRings/key-ring/cryptoKeys/key-name/' field_mask: ...
The metadata also needs to contain the
name resource name. Note the format
Adding metadata using C++
If you are using C++, call
ClientContext::AddMetadata before making your RPC
call to add the appropriate information to the call metadata.
For example, if you are adding metadata for a call to Decrypt:
You can then pass the context to your method call as usual, along with your request and response protocol buffers.
