» google_compute_ssl_certificate

An SslCertificate resource, used for HTTPS load balancing. This resource provides a mechanism to upload an SSL key and certificate to the load balancer to serve secure connections from the user.

To get more information about SslCertificate, see:

» Example Usage - Ssl Certificate Basic

resource "google_compute_ssl_certificate" "default" {
  name_prefix = "my-certificate-"
  description = "a description"
  private_key = file("path/to/private.key")
  certificate = file("path/to/certificate.crt")

  lifecycle {
    create_before_destroy = true
  }
}

» Example Usage - Ssl Certificate Random Provider

# You may also want to control name generation explicitly:
resource "google_compute_ssl_certificate" "default" {
  # The name will contain 8 random hex digits,
  # e.g. "my-certificate-48ab27cd2a"
  name        = random_id.certificate.hex
  private_key = file("path/to/private.key")
  certificate = file("path/to/certificate.crt")

  lifecycle {
    create_before_destroy = true
  }
}

resource "random_id" "certificate" {
  byte_length = 4
  prefix      = "my-certificate-"

  # For security, do not expose raw certificate values in the output
  keepers = {
    private_key = filebase64sha256("path/to/private.key")
    certificate = filebase64sha256("path/to/certificate.crt")
  }
}

» Example Usage - Ssl Certificate Target Https Proxies

// Using with Target HTTPS Proxies
//
// SSL certificates cannot be updated after creation. In order to apply
// the specified configuration, Terraform will destroy the existing
// resource and create a replacement. To effectively use an SSL
// certificate resource with a Target HTTPS Proxy resource, it's
// recommended to specify create_before_destroy in a lifecycle block.
// Either omit the Instance Template name attribute, specify a partial
// name with name_prefix, or use random_id resource. Example:

resource "google_compute_ssl_certificate" "default" {
  name_prefix = "my-certificate-"
  private_key = file("path/to/private.key")
  certificate = file("path/to/certificate.crt")

  lifecycle {
    create_before_destroy = true
  }
}

resource "google_compute_target_https_proxy" "default" {
  name             = "test-proxy"
  url_map          = google_compute_url_map.default.self_link
  ssl_certificates = [google_compute_ssl_certificate.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        = "backend-service"
  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               = "http-health-check"
  request_path       = "/"
  check_interval_sec = 1
  timeout_sec        = 1
}

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • certificate - (Required) The certificate in PEM format. The certificate chain must be no greater than 5 certs long. The chain must include at least one intermediate cert.

  • private_key - (Required) The write-only private key in PEM format.


  • description - (Optional) An optional description of this resource.

  • name - (Optional) 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.

These are in the same namespace as the managed SSL certificates.

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

  • name_prefix - (Optional) Creates a unique name beginning with the specified prefix. Conflicts with name.

» Attributes Reference

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

» Timeouts

This resource provides the following Timeouts configuration options:

  • create - Default is 4 minutes.
  • delete - Default is 4 minutes.
