Example Usage

resource "google_compute_target_ssl_proxy" "default" {
  name = "test"
  backend_service = "${google_compute_backend_service.default.self_link}"
  ssl_certificates = ["${google_compute_ssl_certificate.default.self_link}"]

resource "google_compute_ssl_certificate" "default" {
  name = "default-cert"
  private_key = "${file("path/to/test.key")}"
  certificate = "${file("path/to/test.crt")}"

resource "google_compute_backend_service" "default" {
  name = "default-backend"
  protocol    = "SSL"
  health_checks = ["${google_compute_health_check.default.self_link}"]

resource "google_compute_health_check" "default" {
  name = "default-health-check"
  check_interval_sec = 1
  timeout_sec = 1
  tcp_health_check {
    port = "443"

Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) Name of the resource. Provided by the client when the resource is created. The name must be 1-63 characters long, and comply with RFC1035. Specifically, the name must be 1-63 characters long and match the regular expression [a-z]([-a-z0-9]*[a-z0-9])? which means the first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit, except the last character, which cannot be a dash.
  • backend_service - (Required) A reference to the BackendService resource.
  • ssl_certificates - (Required) A list of SslCertificate resources that are used to authenticate connections between users and the load balancer. Currently, exactly one SSL certificate must be specified.
  • description - (Optional) An optional description of this resource.
  • proxy_header - (Optional) Specifies the type of proxy header to append before sending data to the backend, either NONE or PROXY_V1. The default is NONE.
  • ssl_policy - (Optional) A reference to the SslPolicy resource that will be associated with the TargetSslProxy resource. If not set, the TargetSslProxy resource will not have any SSL policy configured.
  • project (Optional) The ID of the project in which the resource belongs. If it is not provided, the provider project is used.
