Private and public DNS zones created in GCP are DNS resources provided by GCP. The following image displays a private DNS zone created in GCP with a set of resource records configured within the zone.



When private and public DNS zones are imported into Address Manager, each DNS zone is generated under a corresponding View within the specified configuration. The following image displays an example of multiple DNS zones imported into Address Manager.



When overlapping IP addresses exist with VPC networks and DNS zone records in the GCP project, public DNS zones will be imported under a specific configuration in Address Manager named <Configuration name>/GCP-Public-DNS-Zone. If private DNS zones are not associated to any VPC networks in the GCP network, the private DNS zones will be imported under a specific configuration in Address Manager named <Configuration name>/GCP-Private-DNS-Zone (Not Used). The following image displays the <Configuration name>/GCP-Public-DNS-Zone configuration that has been created in Address Manager.



The DNS resource records within the zone are also imported into Address Manager.

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 image displays the 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, a Host record is created in Address Manager. If the IP address does not exist within an imported VPC network, a Generic record is created in Address Manager.
