Cloud Deployment Manager

  1. Allow future deployments to access outputs of previously deployed deployments.

    For instance,

    We tier the deployments for Projects, folders, firewall rules, networks compute etc.

    We would like to expose the outputs for a deployment for our network.
    Then having future deployments be able to consume the outputs of a previous seperate deploy so we can reference say subnetwork ID's.

  2. Allow selection of service account for deployment manager

    When deploying resources cross-project, the limitation of the deployment manager service account to using only a default service account within an existing project is restrictive.

    The creation of some resources (e.g. buckets) via deployment manager appears to be limited only to the gcloud configured project despite the api supporting creation on other projects.

    Deploying projects should not involve a manual step to configure access for the created service account so it can deploy items itself.

  3. Support Service Networking as a public GCP Type

    The servicenetworking.googleapis.com is not currently supported by Deployment Manager nor is it a supported GCP-type so this can't be done through DM for now.

    This becomes a blocker in trying to create private access to Cloud SQL via DM

  5. Use python, javascript or other languages to generate yaml file

    I recently tried AWS CDK which can use familiar language to generate cloudformation yaml file deploy services. I wonder whether GCP have something in plan?

  6. Support selfLink in parent property

    When using another resource's selfLink as parent property, when defining nodePools for GKE cluster, it gives error:

    message: '"/parent": domain: validation; keyword: pattern; message: ECMA 262 regex
    does not match input string; regex: "^projects/[^/]+/locations/[^/]+/clusters/[^/]+$";
    string: "https://container.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/x/locations/europe-north1/clusters/xy"';

    It would be nice if parent property would accept full resource URL. It is not clear how to get the short location url from another resource.

  8. DM Control logic flow/usecases needed for customizations with more examples on python and json processing

    No idea how the yaml process the "gcloud deployment-manager deployments create" and control flow and usecases. Its required if I want to customize the yaml to suit my requirement in which I need pass values dynamically from a json file. Also in case of python, there were no stand alone python code template example provided(without using YAML). How to get a support here?

  9. Support importing Google Cloud Python Packages into Cloud Deployment Manager Python Templates

    https://cloud.google.com/deployment-manager/docs/configuration/templates/import-python-libraries

    The set of supported Python libraries is quite limited. It would nice if one could import `google.cloud.biqquery` and use some of Google's existing library code (eg. https://github.com/googleapis/google-cloud-python/blob/master/bigquery/google/cloud/bigquery/schema.py) to write Python GDM templates.

  11. Error message could be improved for project creation failure

    Scenario: Project with ID 'website' is in soft delete state under my Organization.
    Action: Try to recreate project with DM, using same project ID, under the same organization.
    Result: {"code":403,"message":"The
    caller does not have permission","status":"PERMISSION_DENIED","statusMessage":"Forbidden","requestPath":"https://cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com/v1/projects/website","httpMethod":"GET"}}';

    Things I tried: Granted DM service account nearly every permission I could imagine, including several that included 'resourcemanager.projects.get'

    I eventually determined that it was a conflict with the deleted project.

    It would be awesome if this could return something like: 409, CONFLICT, Target resource is in soft delete state and ID cannot be reused.

    3h of my life, gone! Fortunately DM has saved…

  12. Can we use Deployment Manager for deploying Google app engine services?

    I am deploying all my application to Appengine. I found a "Development" tool in the Developer Console and configured it to sync my Appengine project files. I utilized the online editing feature to edit an appengine project file through the Development tool. I made changes and committed the code. So I want to know whether it is possible to use deployment manager for deploying the app engine services??

    Can someone help me on how I can use the Deployment Manager to deploy the changes I made online? I went through the Deployment Manager documentation online but it doesn't speak of…

  13. Better validation/testing at preview time

    We're aware of the preview feature, but this doesnt appear to give any guarantee's that it'll actually end up working when the time comes to deploy it.

    What id love to see is some strong validation when previewing deployment manager manifests;
    these checks would do something like:
    - Examine existing referenced infrastructure at preview time, and validate that the proposed operation will actually succeed (appreciate that there is some time between preview and actually deploying; so this couldnt be a totally solid guarantee, but enough for CI purposes)
    - Examine permission checks on the deployment manager's service account, ensuring that…

  14. State Transitions for Deployment Manager

    It would be good if we can take a previewed deployment to real deployment. I don't know what command to issue on a deployment to have it proceed further after a successful preview. Right now, I cancel-preview, delete and then call the create again to deploy the config file stuff.

  16. Set labels on all deployed resources

    When adding labels to the deployment, for example with "gcloud deployment-manager deployments create gcpinfra --description "Testing deploy" --labels costcenter=12345,owner=team-xyz --config=/usr/local/share/test.yaml" these labels should be propagated to all resources that gets created. Now these labels only are shown on the deployment "gcpinfra"

  17. Report more complete diff in deployment manager

    It would be great if we could use the SDK to view detailed differences between an update preview and the current deployment. Often, I'm finding that I am updating startup scripts for VMs, or even adding metadata to various components of the deployment.

    In addition to using git diff, which I use to version control deployment scripts, it would be great to have diffs of the deployment from deployment manager to verify that the changes I intend to happen will indeed happen.

  18. Your "environment variables" turn out to not be what is normally meant by environment variables. This is misleading and time wasting.

  19. Preview for delete operation

    Like create/update operation, the delete operation should also have --preview flag to give an idea of what resources that will be destroyed.

  20. Support for Google Cloud Functions V1 type (cloudfunctions.v1.function)

    Currently, Deployment Manager only supports v1beta2 type (cloudfunctions.v1beta2.function). However, it has been out of beta, and we need to upgrade to V1 by December 4th 2018!
