Example Usage

resource "google_compute_target_http_proxy" "default" {
  name        = "test-proxy"
  description = "a description"
  url_map     = "${google_compute_url_map.default.self_link}"

resource "google_compute_url_map" "default" {
  name        = "url-map"
  description = "a description"

  default_service = "${google_compute_backend_service.default.self_link}"

  host_rule {
    hosts        = ["mysite.com"]
    path_matcher = "allpaths"

  path_matcher {
    name            = "allpaths"
    default_service = "${google_compute_backend_service.default.self_link}"

    path_rule {
      paths   = ["/*"]
      service = "${google_compute_backend_service.default.self_link}"

resource "google_compute_backend_service" "default" {
  name        = "default-backend"
  port_name   = "http"
  protocol    = "HTTP"
  timeout_sec = 10

  health_checks = ["${google_compute_http_health_check.default.self_link}"]

resource "google_compute_http_health_check" "default" {
  name               = "test"
  request_path       = "/"
  check_interval_sec = 1
  timeout_sec        = 1
