There are no changes to the Compute Engine API and the gcloud tool for VM instances resources that act as router appliance instances.

The Compute Engine API for the Router resource includes the following new fields in the add-bgp-peers or add-interface commands:

  • --instance, which specifies the router appliance VM instance used for the BGP peer.
  • --instance-zone, which specifies the zone that the router appliance instance resides in.
