Cloud Deployment Manager

  1. 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.

  3. Upgrade paths for deployments.

    It seems you cannot upgrade versions of your deployments, we went through all the manual effort of upgrading our deployed mongo servers from 2.6 to 3.2 only to find after reboot they've all rolled back to 2.6 because of the mass of startup scripts =/

  4. 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: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://container.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/x/locations/europe-north1/clusters/xy&quot;&#39">https://container.googleapis.com/v1beta1/projects/x/locations/europe-north1/clusters/xy&quot;&#39</a>;

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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&quot;,&quot;status&quot;:&quot;PERMISSION_DENIED&quot;,&quot;statusMessage&quot;:&quot;Forbidden&quot;,&quot;requestPath&quot;:&quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com/v1/projects/website&quot;,&quot;httpMethod&quot;:&quot;GET&quot;}}&#39">https://cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com/v1/projects/website&quot;,&quot;httpMethod&quot;:&quot;GET&quot;}}&#39</a>;
    

    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…

  10. Provide an SDK for various languages to manipulate (at least read) a config

    While I assume one can use the remote APIs to query the contents of a deployment (e.g. find instances), a programmatic interface to at least read the structure of a deployment configuration would be great to write custom tooling. E.g. something that would for instance do a rolling update of GCE instances with some custom health checks in between.

    The ability to mutate the structure would be a great addition to this, for use cases where the provided update is insufficient (doesn't support the intended intermediate steps). E.g if adding a new local-ssd to an existing instance, the current update…

  13. 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…

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. Writing scripts for deployment manager is a nightmare

    Alice) How to write a deployment manager file? I found this snippet in the official API documentation:

    autoCreateSubnetworks

    boolean

    When set to true, the VPC network is created in "auto" mode. When set to false, the VPC network is created in "custom" mode.

    An auto mode VPC network starts with one subnet per region. Each subnet has a predetermined range as described in Auto mode VPC network IP ranges.

    Bob) Easy have a look to the documentation.
    Alice) What file format have I to use?
    Bob) yaml is a possibility but Python and jinja work the same
    Alice) In the…

  20. 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"
