Patches the specified policy with the data included in the request. This cannot be used to be update the rules in the policy. Please use the per rule methods like addRule, patchRule, and removeRule instead.

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> security-policies patch ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <project> (string)
    • Project ID for this request.
  • <security-policy> (string)
    • Name of the security policy to update.

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:

SecurityPolicy:
  adaptive-protection-config:
    layer7-ddos-defense-config:
      enable: boolean
      rule-visibility: string
  advanced-options-config:
    json-parsing: string
    log-level: string
  creation-timestamp: string
  description: string
  fingerprint: string
  id: string
  kind: string
  name: string
  recaptcha-options-config:
    redirect-site-key: string
  self-link: 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 .adaptive-protection-config.layer7-ddos-defense-config enable=false
    • If set to true, enables CAAP for L7 DDoS detection.
  • rule-visibility=et

    • Rule visibility can be one of the following: STANDARD - opaque rules. (default) PREMIUM - transparent rules.
  • ...advanced-options-config json-parsing=sadipscing

    • No description provided.
  • log-level=no

    • No description provided.
  • .. creation-timestamp=lorem

    • [Output Only] Creation timestamp in RFC3339 text format.
  • description=et
    • An optional description of this resource. Provide this property when you create the resource.
  • fingerprint=kasd
    • Specifies a fingerprint for this resource, which is essentially a hash of the metadata's contents and used for optimistic locking. The fingerprint is initially generated by Compute Engine and changes after every request to modify or update metadata. You must always provide an up-to-date fingerprint hash in order to update or change metadata, otherwise the request will fail with error 412 conditionNotMet. To see the latest fingerprint, make get() request to the security policy.
  • id=accusam
    • [Output Only] The unique identifier for the resource. This identifier is defined by the server.
  • kind=gubergren
    • [Output only] Type of the resource. Always compute#securityPolicyfor security policies
  • name=sanctus
    • 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.
  • recaptcha-options-config redirect-site-key=rebum.

    • An optional field to supply a reCAPTCHA site key to be used for all the rules using the redirect action with the type of GOOGLE_RECAPTCHA under the security policy. The specified site key needs to be created from the reCAPTCHA API. The user is responsible for the validity of the specified site key. If not specified, a Google-managed site key is used.
  • .. self-link=tempor

    • [Output Only] Server-defined URL for the resource.
  • type=amet
    • The type indicates the intended use of the security policy. - CLOUD_ARMOR: Cloud Armor backend security policies can be configured to filter incoming HTTP requests targeting backend services. They filter requests before they hit the origin servers. - CLOUD_ARMOR_EDGE: Cloud Armor edge security policies can be configured to filter incoming HTTP requests targeting backend services (including Cloud CDN-enabled) as well as backend buckets (Cloud Storage). They filter requests before the request is served from Google's cache. - CLOUD_ARMOR_INTERNAL_SERVICE: Cloud Armor internal service policies can be configured to filter HTTP requests targeting services managed by Traffic Director in a service mesh. They filter requests before the request is served from the application. This field can be set only at resource creation time.

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

    • OAuth access token.
