I’m traumatized by some early experiences of tfstate gone wild and so I have some naive questions about the modules, particularly @jamie’s terraform-aws-airship-ecs-service … is the strategy to clone the repo and then create a terraform.tfvars file with the settings I want? Or should I apply each of the preparation steps in sequence, finally culminating in a magnificent terraform apply?

Hi Blaise.

So which terraform modules have you used in the past? Or is this the first one? @Blaise Pabon

jamie avatar
jamie

The module is @maarten ‘s brainchild.

There’s a guide on how to use the module and all associates resources at http://airship.tf

Can you tell me what you are using it for? I can hopefully help you with it further!

My hope is to host a number of apps (Jenkins, Jira, Artifactory, DockerEE, [webhook.site](http://webhook\.site)) for the folks at the office.

Thank you @jamie, I will go ahead and step through each of the preparation steps and build it up incrementally…. after all, it’s not on my dime!

Hi @jamie, well, I noticed that the example with_nlb was beautifully done and easy to understand, so I ran it. The plan was clean, but when I applied, I got one small error (see https://paste.opennms.eu/vefilidemi.php for the full trace)

Error: Error applying plan:

Potentially the alb listener wasn’t created which causes that error.

I may have screwed up the container name somehow by changing the original project name, but not the container. I will try it with the original settings.

I’m getting a similar error myself. I will see if I can address it.

OK, my uninformed hunch is that I need to have bootstrap image in my ECR, but I imagine that would have appeared in the doc.

Blaise Pabon avatar

heeyyyy, what about this:

output "lb_address" {
  value = "${aws_lb.this.dns_name}"
}
Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

but then:

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

resource "aws_lb" "this" {
  name               = "${terraform.workspace}-service-nlb"
Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

should that be

dns_name  = "${terraform.worksp......

@jamie: I think I may have been useing the wrong profile. Sorry, it seems to be getting much farther.

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

Nope, still getting the LB error, despite getting farther…

You’re on the right track. I’ll be on from 9am est and can discuss your implementation with you if you like. It’s late for me now so I’m heading to bed. :)

Hi @jamie, I think it may be:

 module.alb_shared_services_external.var.https_listeners: variable https_listeners in module alb_shared_services_external should be type list, got string
Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

yup! The variable for should be an empty list, not an empty string.

https_listeners = []

airship is unlikely to work with 0.12 without a major overhaul. if you use lots of modules, wait a bit before switching to 0.12
