Note

Import requires an ID with this format: existing_domain_name:existing_property_name.

Example

resource "akamai_gtm_property" "demo_property" {
    domain = "demo_domain.akadns.net"
    name = "demo_property"
    type =  "weighted-round-robin"
    score_aggregation_type = "median"
    handout_limit = 5
    handout_mode = "normal"
    traffic_target {
        datacenter_id = 3131
    }
}

Argument reference

This resource supports these arguments:

  • domain - (Required) DNS name for the GTM Domain set that includes this Property.

  • name - (Required) DNS name for a collection of IP address or CNAME responses. The value, together with the GTM domainName, forms the Property's hostname.

  • type - (Required) Specifies the load balancing behavior for the property. Either failover, geographic, cidrmapping, weighted-round-robin, weighted-hashed, weighted-round-robin-load-feedback, qtr, or performance.

  • handout_mode - (Required) Specifies how IPs are returned when more than one IP is alive and available.

  • traffic_target - (Optional) Contains information about where to direct data center traffic. You can have multiple traffic_target arguments. If used, includes these arguments:

    • datacenter_id - (Optional) A unique identifier for an existing data center in the domain.
    • enabled - (Optional) A boolean indicating whether the traffic target is used. You can also omit the traffic target, which has the same result as the false value.

    • test_timeout - (Required) Specifies the duration of the liveness test before it fails. The range is from 0.001 to 60 seconds.

    • answers_required - (Optional) If test_object_protocol is DNS, enter a boolean value if an answer is needed for the DNS query to be successful.

    • disabled - (Optional) A boolean indicating whether the liveness test is disabled. When disabled, GTM stops running the test, effectively treating it as if it no longer exists.

    • disable_nonstandard_port_warning - (Optional) A boolean that if set to true, disables warnings when non-standard ports are used.

    • error_penalty - (Optional) Specifies the score that's reported if the liveness test encounters an error other than timeout, such as connection refused, and 404.

    • http_header - (Optional) Contains HTTP headers to send if the test_object_protocol is http or https. You can have multiple http_header entries. Requires these arguments:

      • name - (Optional) Name of HTTP header.
      • value - (Optional) Value of HTTP header.
    • http_error3xx - (Optional) A boolean that if set to true, treats a 3xx HTTP response as a failure if the test_object_protocol is http, https, or ftp.

    • http_error4xx - (Optional) A boolean that if set to true, treats a 4xx HTTP response as a failure if the test_object_protocol is http, https, or ftp.

    • http_error5xx - (Optional) A boolean that if set to true, treats a 5xx HTTP response as a failure if the test_object_protocol is http, https, or ftp.

    • peer_certificate_verification - (Optional) A boolean that if set to true, validates the origin certificate. Applies only to tests with test_object_protocol of https.

    • recursion_requested - (Optional) A boolean indicating whether the test_object_protocol is DNS. The DNS query is recursive.

    • request_string - (Optional) Specifies a request string.

    • resource_type - (Optional) Specifies the query type, if test_object_protocol is DNS.

    • response_string - (Optional) Specifies a response string.

    • ssl_client_certificate - (Optional) Indicates a Base64-encoded certificate. SSL client certificates are available for livenessTests that use secure protocols.

    • ssl_client_private_key - (Optional) Indicates a Base64-encoded private key. The private key used to generate or request a certificate for livenessTests can't have a passphrase nor be used for any other purpose.

    • test_object - (Optional) Specifies the static text that acts as a stand-in for the data that you're sending on the network.

    • test_object_password - (Optional) Specifies the test object's password. It is required if testObjectProtocol is ftp.

    • test_object_port - (Required) Specifies the port number for the testObject.

    • test_object_username - (Optional) A descriptive name for the testObject.

    • timeout_penalty- (Optional) Specifies the score to be reported if the liveness test times out.

  • wait_on_complete - (Optional) A boolean indicating whether to wait for transaction to complete. Set to true by default.

  • failover_delay - (Optional) Specifies the failover delay in seconds.

  • failback_delay - (Optional) Specifies the failback delay in seconds.

  • ipv6 - (Optional) A boolean that indicates the type of IP address handed out by a GTM property.

  • stickiness_bonus_percentage - (Optional) Specifies a percentage used to configure data center affinity.

  • stickiness_bonus_constant - (Optional) Specifies a constant used to configure data center affinity.

  • health_threshold - (Optional) Configures a cutoff value that is computed from the median scores.

  • use_computed_targets - (Optional) For load-feedback domains only, a boolean that indicates whether you want GTM to automatically compute target load.

  • backup_ip - (Optional) Specifies a backup IP. When GTM declares that all of the targets are down, the backup IP is handed out. If a backup IP is set, do not set a backup CNAME.

  • backup_cname - (Optional) Specifies a backup CNAME. If GTM declares that all of the servers configured for your property are down, the backup CNAME is handed out. If a backup CNAME is set, do not set a backup IP.

  • balance_by_download_score - (Optional) A boolean that indicates whether download score based load balancing is enabled.

  • unreachable_threshold - (Optional) For performance domains, this specifies a penalty value that's added to liveness test scores when data centers have an aggregated loss fraction higher than this value.

  • health_multiplier - (Optional) Configures a cutoff value that is computed from the median scores.

  • dynamic_ttl - (Optional) Indicates the TTL in seconds for records that might change dynamically based on liveness and load balancing such as A and AAAA records, and CNAMEs.

  • max_unreachable_penalty - (Optional) For performance domains, this specifies a penalty value that's added to liveness test scores when data centers show an aggregated loss fraction higher than the penalty value.

  • map_name - (Optional) A descriptive label for a GeographicMap or a CidrMap that's required if the property is either geographic or cidrmapping, in which case mapName needs to reference either an existing GeographicMap or CidrMap in the same domain.

  • load_imbalance_percentage - (Optional) Indicates the percent of load imbalance factor (LIF) for the property.

  • health_max - (Optional) Defines the absolute limit beyond which IPs are declared unhealthy.

  • cname - (Optional) Indicates the fully qualified name aliased to a particular property.

  • ghost_demand_reporting - (Optional) Use load estimates from Akamai Ghost utilization messages.

  • min_live_fraction - (Optional) Specifies what fraction of the servers need to respond to requests so GTM considers the data center up and able to receive traffic.

  • static_rr_set - (Optional) Contains static record sets. You can have multiple static_rr_set entries. Requires these arguments:

    • type - (Optional) The record type.
    • ttl - (Optional) The number of seconds that this record should live in a resolver's cache before being refetched.
    • rdata - (Optional) (List) An array of data strings, representing multiple records within a set.
