Manages a network within GCE. For more information see the official documentation and API.

Example Usage

resource "google_compute_network" "default" {
  name                    = "foobar"
  auto_create_subnetworks = "true"

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.
  • auto_create_subnetworks - (Optional) If set to true, this network will be created in auto subnet mode, and Google will create a subnet for each region automatically. If set to false, a custom subnetted network will be created that can support google_compute_subnetwork resources. Defaults to true.

  • ipv4_range - (Optional) If set to a CIDR block, uses the legacy VPC API with the specified range. This API is deprecated. If set, auto_create_subnetworks must be explicitly set to false.

  • routing_mode - (Optional) Sets the network-wide routing mode for Cloud Routers to use. Accepted values are "GLOBAL" or "REGIONAL". Defaults to "REGIONAL". Refer to the Cloud Router documentation for more details.

  • description - (Optional) A brief description of this resource.

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

Attributes Reference

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

  • gateway_ipv4 - The IPv4 address of the gateway.

  • name - The unique name of the network.

  • self_link - The URI of the created resource.


Networks can be imported using the name, e.g.

$ terraform import google_compute_network.default foobar
