Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) A unique name for the resource, required by GCE. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • peer_ip - (Required) The VPN gateway sitting outside of GCE. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • shared_secret - (Required) A passphrase shared between the two VPN gateways. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • target_vpn_gateway - (Required) A link to the VPN gateway sitting inside GCE. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.


  • description - (Optional) A description of the resource. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • ike_version - (Optional) Either version 1 or 2. Default is 2. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • local_traffic_selector - (Optional) Specifies which CIDR ranges are announced to the VPN peer. Mandatory if the VPN gateway is attached to a custom subnetted network. Refer to Google documentation for more information.

  • project - (Optional) The project in which the resource belongs. If it is not provided, the provider project is used.

  • region - (Optional) The region this tunnel should sit in. If not specified, the project region will be used. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

Attributes Reference

In addition to the arguments listed above, the following computed attributes are exported:

  • detailed_status - Information about the status of the VPN tunnel.

  • self_link - The URI of the created resource.
