Deployment Manager - Automating Network Deployment
In this lab, you create a Deployment Manager configuration along with templates to automate the deployment of a custom network. Specifically, you deploy 3 networks with firewall rules and VM instances as shown in this network diagram:
The configuration you create in this lab makes use of template and environment variables.
Template variables are abstract properties that allow you to declare the value to be passed to the template in the
*.yamlconfiguration file. You can change the value for each deployment in the
*.yamlfile without having to make changes to the underlying templates.
Environment variables allow you to reuse templates in different projects and deployments. Instead of representing properties of resources, they represent more global properties such as a Project ID or the name of the deployment.
In this lab, you learn how to perform the following tasks:
Create a template for a auto-mode network
Create a template for a custom-mode network
Create a template for firewall rules
Create a template for VM instances
Create and deploy a configuration
Verify the deployment of a configuration
