google_compute_networks

Use the google_compute_networks InSpec audit resource to test properties of all, or a filtered group of, GCP compute networks for a project.


Syntax

A google_compute_networks resource block collects GCP networks by project then tests that group.

describe google_compute_networks(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  it { should exist }
end

Use this InSpec resource to enumerate IDs then test in-depth using google_compute_network.

google_compute_networks(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp').network_names.each do |network_name|
  describe google_compute_network(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp',  name: network_name) do
    its ('subnetworks.count') { should be < 10 }
    its ('creation_timestamp_date') { should be > Time.now - 365*60*60*24*10 }
    its ('routing_config.routing_mode') { should eq "REGIONAL" }
    its ('auto_create_subnetworks'){ should be false }
  end
end


Examples

The following examples show how to use this InSpec audit resource.

Test that there are no more than a specified number of networks available for the project

describe google_compute_networks(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('count') { should be <= 100}
end

Test that an expected network identifier is present in the project

describe google_compute_networks(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('network_ids') { should include 12345678975432 }
end

Test that an expected network name is available for the project

describe google_compute_networks(project: 'chef-inspec-gcp') do
  its('network_names') { should include "network-name" }
end


Filter Criteria

This resource supports the following filter criteria: network_id and network_name. Any of these may be used with where, as a block or as a method.

Properties

  • network_ids - an array of googlecomputenetwork identifier integers
  • network_names - an array of googlecomputenetwork name strings


GCP Permissions

Ensure the Compute Engine API is enabled for the project where the resource is located.
