» 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.

See the legacy network docs for more details. The range of internal addresses that are legal on this legacy network. This range is a CIDR specification, for example: The resource must be recreated to modify this field.

  • auto_create_subnetworks - (Optional) When set to true, the network is created in "auto subnet mode" and it will create a subnet for each region automatically across the address range. When set to false, the network is created in "custom subnet mode" so the user can explicitly connect subnetwork resources.

  • routing_mode - (Optional) The network-wide routing mode to use. If set to REGIONAL, this network's cloud routers will only advertise routes with subnetworks of this network in the same region as the router. If set to GLOBAL, this network's cloud routers will advertise routes with all subnetworks of this network, across regions.

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

  • delete_default_routes_on_create: If set to true, default routes ( will be deleted immediately after network creation. Defaults to false.
