Creates a SslCertificate 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-ssl-certificates 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:

  certificate: string
  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  expire-time: string
  id: string
  kind: string
    domain-status: { string: string }
    domains: [string]
    status: string
  name: string
  private-key: string
  region: string
  self-link: string
    certificate: string
    private-key: string
  subject-alternative-names: [string]
  type: 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 . certificate=clita
    • A value read into memory from a certificate file. The certificate file must be in PEM format. The certificate chain must be no greater than 5 certs long. The chain must include at least one intermediate cert.
  • creation-timestamp=lorem
    • [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
  • description=nonumy
    • An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
  • expire-time=kasd
    • [Output Only] Expire time of the certificate. RFC3339
  • id=lorem
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=duo
    • [Output Only] Type of the resource. Always compute#sslCertificate for SSL certificates.
  • managed domain-status=key=labore
    • [Output only] Detailed statuses of the domains specified for managed certificate resource.
    • the value will be associated with the given key
  • domains=lorem
  • status=takimata

    • [Output only] Status of the managed certificate resource.
  • .. 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])? 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.
  • private-key=lorem
    • A value read into memory from a write-only private key file. The private key file must be in PEM format. For security, only insert requests include this field.
  • region=lorem
    • [Output Only] URL of the region where the regional SSL Certificate resides. This field is not applicable to global SSL Certificate.
  • self-link=accusam
    • [Output only] Server-defined URL for the resource.
  • self-managed certificate=invidunt
    • A local certificate file. The certificate must be 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=lorem

    • A write-only private key in PEM format. Only insert requests will include this field.
  • .. subject-alternative-names=ea

    • [Output Only] Domains associated with the certificate via Subject Alternative Name.
    • Each invocation of this argument appends the given value to the array.
  • type=sadipscing
    • (Optional) Specifies the type of SSL certificate, either "SELF_MANAGED" or "MANAGED". If not specified, the certificate is self-managed and the fields certificate and private_key are used.

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).

Optional General Properties

The following properties can configure any call, and are not specific to this method.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

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

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string

    • Available to use for quota purposes for server-side applications. Can be any arbitrary string assigned to a user, but should not exceed 40 characters.
  • -p upload-type=string

    • Legacy upload protocol for media (e.g. "media", "multipart").
  • -p upload-protocol=string

    • Upload protocol for media (e.g. "raw", "multipart").
  • -p user-ip=string

    • Legacy name for parameter that has been superseded by quotaUser.
