Creates a regional HealthCheckService resource in the specified project and region using the data included in the request.


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


If unset, the scope for this method defaults to You can set the scope for this method like this: compute1 --scope <scope> region-health-check-services insert ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <project> (string)
    • Project ID for this request.
  • <region> (string)
    • Name of the region scoping this request.

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:

  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  fingerprint: string
  health-checks: [string]
  health-status-aggregation-policy: string
  id: string
  kind: string
  name: string
  network-endpoint-groups: [string]
  notification-endpoints: [string]
  region: string
  self-link: 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=sit
    • [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
  • description=magna
    • An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
  • fingerprint=dolor
    • Fingerprint of this resource. A hash of the contents stored in this object. This field is used in optimistic locking. This field will be ignored when inserting a HealthCheckService. An up-to-date fingerprint must be provided in order to patch/update the HealthCheckService; Otherwise, the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet. To see the latest fingerprint, make a get() request to retrieve the HealthCheckService.
  • health-checks=stet
    • A list of URLs to the HealthCheck resources. Must have at least one HealthCheck, and not more than 10 for regional HealthCheckService, and not more than 1 for global HealthCheckService. HealthCheck resources must have portSpecification=USE_SERVING_PORT or portSpecification=USE_FIXED_PORT. For regional HealthCheckService, the HealthCheck must be regional and in the same region. For global HealthCheckService, HealthCheck must be global. Mix of regional and global HealthChecks is not supported. Multiple regional HealthChecks must belong to the same region. Regional HealthChecks must belong to the same region as zones of NetworkEndpointGroups. For global HealthCheckService using global INTERNET_IP_PORT NetworkEndpointGroups, the global HealthChecks must specify sourceRegions, and HealthChecks that specify sourceRegions can only be used with global INTERNET_IP_PORT NetworkEndpointGroups.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • health-status-aggregation-policy=sit
    • Optional. Policy for how the results from multiple health checks for the same endpoint are aggregated. Defaults to NO_AGGREGATION if unspecified. - NO_AGGREGATION. An EndpointHealth message is returned for each pair in the health check service. - AND. If any health check of an endpoint reports UNHEALTHY, then UNHEALTHY is the HealthState of the endpoint. If all health checks report HEALTHY, the HealthState of the endpoint is HEALTHY. . This is only allowed with regional HealthCheckService.
  • id=sit
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=sadipscing
    • [Output only] Type of the resource. Always compute#healthCheckServicefor health check services.
  • name=kasd
    • Name of the resource. 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.
  • network-endpoint-groups=duo
    • A list of URLs to the NetworkEndpointGroup resources. Must not have more than 100. For regional HealthCheckService, NEGs must be in zones in the region of the HealthCheckService. For global HealthCheckServices, the NetworkEndpointGroups must be global INTERNET_IP_PORT.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • notification-endpoints=aliquyam
    • A list of URLs to the NotificationEndpoint resources. Must not have more than 10. A list of endpoints for receiving notifications of change in health status. For regional HealthCheckService, NotificationEndpoint must be regional and in the same region. For global HealthCheckService, NotificationEndpoint must be global.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • region=consetetur
    • [Output Only] URL of the region where the health check service resides. This field is not applicable to global health check services. You must specify this field as part of the HTTP request URL. It is not settable as a field in the request body.
  • self-link=gubergren
    • [Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.

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).

  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
