» vcd_lb_app_profile

Provides a vCloud Director Edge Gateway Load Balancer Application Profile resource. An application profile defines the behavior of the load balancer for a particular type of network traffic. After configuring a profile, you associate it with a virtual server. The virtual server then processes traffic according to the values specified in the profile.

Supported in provider v2.4+

» Example Usage 1 (TCP Application Profile)

resource "vcd_lb_app_profile" "tcp" {
  org          = "my-org"
  vdc          = "my-org-vdc"
  edge_gateway = "my-edge-gw"

  name = "tcp-app-profile"
  type = "tcp"
resource "vcd_lb_app_profile" "http" {
  org          = "my-org"
  vdc          = "my-org-vdc"
  edge_gateway = "my-edge-gw"

  name = "http-profile"
  type = "http"

  http_redirect_url              = "/service-one"
  persistence_mechanism          = "cookie"
  cookie_name                    = "JSESSIONID"
  cookie_mode                    = "insert"
  insert_x_forwarded_http_header = "true"

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • org - (Optional) The name of organization to use, optional if defined at provider level. Useful when connected as sysadmin working across different organisations
  • vdc - (Optional) The name of VDC to use, optional if defined at provider level
  • edge_gateway - (Required) The name of the edge gateway on which the application profile is to be created
  • name - (Required) Application profile name
  • type - (Required) Protocol type used to send requests to the server. One of tcp, udp, http, or https
  • enable_ssl_passthrough - (Optional) Enable SSL authentication to be passed through to the virtual server. Otherwise SSL authentication takes place at the destination address
  • http_redirect_url - (Optional) The URL to which traffic that arrives at the destination address should be redirected. Only applies for types http and https
  • persistence_mechanism - (Optional) Persistence mechanism for the profile. One of 'cookie', 'ssl-sessionid', 'sourceip'
  • cookie_name - (Optional) Used to uniquely identify the session the first time a client accesses the site. The load balancer refers to this cookie when connecting subsequent requests in the session, so that they all go to the same virtual server. Only applies for persistence_mechanism 'cookie'
  • cookie_mode - (Optional) The mode by which the cookie should be inserted. One of 'insert', 'prefix', or 'appsession'
  • expiration - (Optional) Length of time in seconds that persistence stays in effect
  • insert_x_forwarded_http_header - (Optional) Enables 'X-Forwarded-For' header for identifying the originating IP address of a client connecting to a Web server through the load balancer. Only applies for types http and https
  • enable_pool_side_ssl - (Optional) Enable to define the certificate, CAs, or CRLs used to authenticate the load balancer from the server side. Note: This resource does not currently support attaching Pool and Virtual Server certificates therefore this toggle only enables it. To make it fully work certificates must be currently attached manually.

» Attribute Reference

The following attributes are exported on this resource:

  • id - The NSX ID of the load balancer application profile

» Importing

An existing load balancer application profile can be imported into this resource via supplying the full dot separated path for load balancer application profile. An example is below:

terraform import vcd_lb_app_profile.imported my-org.my-org-vdc.my-edge-gw.my-lb-app-profile

The above would import the application profile named my-lb-app-profile that is defined on edge gateway my-edge-gw which is configured in organization named my-org and vDC named my-org-vdc.
