Property values

The following tables describe the values you need to set in the schema.

Microsoft.Network/trafficmanagerprofiles object

Name Type Required Value
name string Yes The name of the Traffic Manager profile.
type enum Yes Microsoft.Network/trafficmanagerprofiles
apiVersion enum Yes 2017-05-01
tags object No Resource tags.
location string No The Azure Region where the resource lives
properties object Yes The properties of the Traffic Manager profile. - ProfileProperties object

ProfileProperties object

Name Type Required Value
profileStatus enum No The status of the Traffic Manager profile. - Enabled or Disabled
trafficRoutingMethod enum No The traffic routing method of the Traffic Manager profile. - Performance, Priority, Weighted, Geographic
dnsConfig object No The DNS settings of the Traffic Manager profile. - DnsConfig object
monitorConfig object No The endpoint monitoring settings of the Traffic Manager profile. - MonitorConfig object
endpoints array No The list of endpoints in the Traffic Manager profile. - Endpoint object

DnsConfig object

Name Type Required Value
relativeName string No The relative DNS name provided by this Traffic Manager profile. This value is combined with the DNS domain name used by Azure Traffic Manager to form the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) of the profile.
ttl integer No The DNS Time-To-Live (TTL), in seconds. This informs the local DNS resolvers and DNS clients how long to cache DNS responses provided by this Traffic Manager profile.

MonitorConfig object

Name Type Required Value
profileMonitorStatus enum No The profile-level monitoring status of the Traffic Manager profile. - CheckingEndpoints, Online, Degraded, Disabled, Inactive
protocol enum No The protocol (HTTP, HTTPS or TCP) used to probe for endpoint health. - HTTP, HTTPS, TCP
port integer No The TCP port used to probe for endpoint health.
path string No The path relative to the endpoint domain name used to probe for endpoint health.
intervalInSeconds integer No The monitor interval for endpoints in this profile. This is the interval at which Traffic Manager will check the health of each endpoint in this profile.
timeoutInSeconds integer No The monitor timeout for endpoints in this profile. This is the time that Traffic Manager allows endpoints in this profile to response to the health check.
toleratedNumberOfFailures integer No The number of consecutive failed health check that Traffic Manager tolerates before declaring an endpoint in this profile Degraded after the next failed health check.

Endpoint object

Name Type Required Value
properties object No The properties of the Traffic Manager endpoint. - EndpointProperties object

EndpointProperties object

Name Type Required Value
targetResourceId string No The Azure Resource URI of the of the endpoint. Not applicable to endpoints of type 'ExternalEndpoints'.
target string No The fully-qualified DNS name of the endpoint. Traffic Manager returns this value in DNS responses to direct traffic to this endpoint.
endpointStatus enum No The status of the endpoint. If the endpoint is Enabled, it is probed for endpoint health and is included in the traffic routing method. - Enabled or Disabled
weight integer No The weight of this endpoint when using the 'Weighted' traffic routing method. Possible values are from 1 to 1000.
priority integer No The priority of this endpoint when using the ‘Priority’ traffic routing method. Possible values are from 1 to 1000, lower values represent higher priority. This is an optional parameter. If specified, it must be specified on all endpoints, and no two endpoints can share the same priority value.
endpointLocation string No Specifies the location of the external or nested endpoints when using the ‘Performance’ traffic routing method.
endpointMonitorStatus enum No The monitoring status of the endpoint. - CheckingEndpoint, Online, Degraded, Disabled, Inactive, Stopped
minChildEndpoints integer No The minimum number of endpoints that must be available in the child profile in order for the parent profile to be considered available. Only applicable to endpoint of type 'NestedEndpoints'.
geoMapping array No The list of countries/regions mapped to this endpoint when using the ‘Geographic’ traffic routing method. Please consult Traffic Manager Geographic documentation for a full list of accepted values. - string
