  • client_certificate - (Optional) PEM representation of the slave's x509 certificate.

  • client_key - (Optional) PEM representation of the slave's private key. The corresponding public key in encoded in the client_certificate.

  • connect_retry_interval - (Optional, Default: 60) The number of seconds between connect retries.

  • dump_file_path - (Optional) Path to a SQL file in GCS from which slave instances are created. Format is gs://bucket/filename.

  • master_heartbeat_period - (Optional) Time in ms between replication heartbeats.
