Updates the specified firewall rule with the data included in the request. This method supports PATCH semantics and uses the JSON merge patch format and processing rules.

Scopes

You will need authorization for at least one of the following scopes to make a valid call:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform
  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/compute

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform. You can set the scope for this method like this: compute1 --scope <scope> firewalls patch ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <project> (string)
    • Project ID for this request.
  • <firewall> (string)
    • Name of the firewall rule to patch.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

Firewall:
  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  destination-ranges: [string]
  direction: string
  disabled: boolean
  id: string
  kind: string
  log-config:
    enable: boolean
    metadata: string
  name: string
  network: string
  priority: integer
  self-link: string
  source-ranges: [string]
  source-service-accounts: [string]
  source-tags: [string]
  target-service-accounts: [string]
  target-tags: [string]

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . creation-timestamp=amet.
    • [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
  • description=gubergren
    • An optional description of this resource. Provide this field when you create the resource.
  • destination-ranges=est
    • If destination ranges are specified, the firewall rule applies only to traffic that has destination IP address in these ranges. These ranges must be expressed in CIDR format. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • direction=rebum.
    • Direction of traffic to which this firewall applies, either INGRESS or EGRESS. The default is INGRESS. For INGRESS traffic, you cannot specify the destinationRanges field, and for EGRESS traffic, you cannot specify the sourceRanges or sourceTags fields.
  • disabled=true
    • Denotes whether the firewall rule is disabled. When set to true, the firewall rule is not enforced and the network behaves as if it did not exist. If this is unspecified, the firewall rule will be enabled.
  • id=erat
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=dolor
    • [Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#firewall for firewall rules.
  • log-config enable=true
    • This field denotes whether to enable logging for a particular firewall rule.
  • metadata=eirmod

    • This field can only be specified for a particular firewall rule if logging is enabled for that rule. This field denotes whether to include or exclude metadata for firewall logs.
  • .. name=amet.

    • 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])?. The first character must be a lowercase letter, and all following characters (except for the last character) must be a dash, lowercase letter, or digit. The last character must be a lowercase letter or digit.
  • network=takimata
    • URL of the network resource for this firewall rule. If not specified when creating a firewall rule, the default network is used: global/networks/default If you choose to specify this field, you can specify the network as a full or partial URL. For example, the following are all valid URLs: - https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/myproject/global/networks/my-network - projects/myproject/global/networks/my-network - global/networks/default
  • priority=49
    • Priority for this rule. This is an integer between 0 and 65535, both inclusive. The default value is 1000. Relative priorities determine which rule takes effect if multiple rules apply. Lower values indicate higher priority. For example, a rule with priority 0 has higher precedence than a rule with priority 1. DENY rules take precedence over ALLOW rules if they have equal priority. Note that VPC networks have implied rules with a priority of 65535. To avoid conflicts with the implied rules, use a priority number less than 65535.
  • self-link=et
    • [Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.
  • source-ranges=labore
    • If source ranges are specified, the firewall rule applies only to traffic that has a source IP address in these ranges. These ranges must be expressed in CIDR format. One or both of sourceRanges and sourceTags may be set. If both fields are set, the rule applies to traffic that has a source IP address within sourceRanges OR a source IP from a resource with a matching tag listed in the sourceTags field. The connection does not need to match both fields for the rule to apply. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • source-service-accounts=sed
    • If source service accounts are specified, the firewall rules apply only to traffic originating from an instance with a service account in this list. Source service accounts cannot be used to control traffic to an instance's external IP address because service accounts are associated with an instance, not an IP address. sourceRanges can be set at the same time as sourceServiceAccounts. If both are set, the firewall applies to traffic that has a source IP address within the sourceRanges OR a source IP that belongs to an instance with service account listed in sourceServiceAccount. The connection does not need to match both fields for the firewall to apply. sourceServiceAccounts cannot be used at the same time as sourceTags or targetTags.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • source-tags=sit
    • If source tags are specified, the firewall rule applies only to traffic with source IPs that match the primary network interfaces of VM instances that have the tag and are in the same VPC network. Source tags cannot be used to control traffic to an instance's external IP address, it only applies to traffic between instances in the same virtual network. Because tags are associated with instances, not IP addresses. One or both of sourceRanges and sourceTags may be set. If both fields are set, the firewall applies to traffic that has a source IP address within sourceRanges OR a source IP from a resource with a matching tag listed in the sourceTags field. The connection does not need to match both fields for the firewall to apply.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • target-service-accounts=sit
    • A list of service accounts indicating sets of instances located in the network that may make network connections as specified in allowed[]. targetServiceAccounts cannot be used at the same time as targetTags or sourceTags. If neither targetServiceAccounts nor targetTags are specified, the firewall rule applies to all instances on the specified network.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • target-tags=invidunt
    • A list of tags that controls which instances the firewall rule applies to. If targetTags are specified, then the firewall rule applies only to instances in the VPC network that have one of those tags. If no targetTags are specified, the firewall rule applies to all instances on the specified network.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional Method Properties

You may set the following properties to further configure the call. Please note that -p is followed by one or more key-value-pairs, and is called like this -p k1=v1 k2=v2 even though the listing below repeats the -p for completeness.

  • -p request-id=string
    • An optional request ID to identify requests. Specify a unique request ID so that if you must retry your request, the server will know to ignore the request if it has already been completed. For example, consider a situation where you make an initial request and the request times out. If you make the request again with the same request ID, the server can check if original operation with the same request ID was received, and if so, will ignore the second request. This prevents clients from accidentally creating duplicate commitments. The request ID must be a valid UUID with the exception that zero UUID is not supported ( 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000).
