Private and public DNS zones created in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) are DNS resources provided by GCP. The following example illustrates a private DNS zone created in GCP with a set of resource records configured within the zone.



When CDV imports private and public DNS zones into Address Manager, each DNS zone is generated under a corresponding View within the specified configuration. The following example illustrates multiple DNS zones imported into Address Manager.



When overlapping IP addresses exist between VPC networks and DNS zone records in the GCP project, public DNS zones are imported under a specific configuration in Address Manager named <Configuration name>/GCP-Public-DNS-Zone.

Private DNS zones that are not associated with any VPC networks in the GCP network are imported under a separate configuration in Address Manager named <Configuration name>/GCP-Private-DNS-Zone (Not Used).

The following example illustrates a public zone (<Configuration name>/GCP-Public-DNS-Zone) as it appears in Address Manager.



CDV also imports the DNS resource records within the zone.

  • Private DNS zones support the following DNS resource records types: A, AAAA, CAA, CNAME, MX, NAPTR, NS, PTR, SOA, SPF, SRV, SSHFP, TLSA, and TXT.
  • Public DNS zones support the following DNS resource records types: A, AAAA, CAA, CNAME, DS, IPSECKEY, MX, NAPTR, NS, PTR, SOA, SPF, SRV, SSHFP, TLSA, and TXT.

The following example illustrates DNS resource record data imported into Address Manager from the private DNS zone.



Note: If an IP address is associated to an A or AAAA record and the IP address exists within an imported VPC network from GCP, CDV creates a Host record in Address Manager. If the IP address does not exist within an imported VPC network, CDV creates a Generic record in Address Manager.
