hi all, just getting started with geodesic. managed to get the reference-architecture image built. i’m unsure of where to run make rootper the readme. also don’t see a configs directory in the repo, or the container

Michael Dizon

interesting, looking at the repo — seems that the configs folder was deleted two years ago

@ the reference-architecture is deprecated. I encourage you to check out https://github.com/cloudposse/atmos or Terragrunt.

@Joe Niland did you migrate your prior environment to use atmos and the new components? I’m curious if you did that, or started with fresh accounts?

@Joe Hosteny no, not yet. I’ll try it on the next client project for sure.

Ah, thanks. I was hoping there was someone who went through this already. I have an existing org built on the old arch I’d like to port over.

I will let you know if I get that opportunity. It could happen!

@Joe Niland do you mean that you won’t be able to update the atmos repo until you use it on a project?

Joe Hosteny avatar
Joe Hosteny

I think he means that he is using the old reference architecture, and plans on using atmos with the new components only on new orgs / accounts for now

@Joe Niland does this mean geodesic is also deprecated?

Joe Niland avatar
Joe Niland

No, not at all. Just the structure used for the multi-account Terraform project.

Atmos is just another tool we use and we use it in geodesic

But it can run anywhere

@Matt Gowie is working with us now to help with documentation.

i’m trying to run the example in atmos. is there supposed to be a components folder in there?

Michael Dizon avatar
Michael Dizon

looks like there used to be one, but it was removed a little while ago

Components are root modules

Create your own or use ours

Or both

i had to add the account-map component to get it to run, but am now getting this error error configuring S3 Backend: IAM Role (arn:aws:iam::XXXXXXXX:role/eg-gbl-root-terraform) cannot be assumed.

Michael Dizon avatar
Michael Dizon

do i need to add something else?

Michael Dizon avatar
Michael Dizon

i checked the account, and the role doesn’t exist

I don’t have the answer necessarily. But I think you need this piece as well: https://github.com/cloudposse/terraform-aws-iam-account-settings

cloudposse/terraform-aws-iam-account-settings

Terraform module to provision general IAM account settings - cloudposse/terraform-aws-iam-account-settings

@matt has just update that module to 0.14. We will update our AWS components to use it

Michael Dizon avatar
Michael Dizon

would this be replacing what currently exists in the account-settings directory?

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

No, I think we’re going to incorporate the module into that one

Michael Dizon avatar
Michael Dizon

ah okay thanks!

I see this inconsistency when I look in the Dockerfile.options:# Our older Geodesic configurations relied on direnv, which we no longer recommend,# preferring YAML configuration files instead.ENV DIRENV_ENABLED=true

Bill Clark avatar
Bill Clark

Holy cow this Geodesic build is something else. Fingers-crossed this actually works for me! Brings me back to the gentoo linux days

It worked! Very pretty ascii art!
