“Terraform represents anything with an API as code.”

mrhen avatar

That’s kind of interesting. I wouldn’t have thought about using terraform for managing resources between microservices but didn’t think twice about using it for managing AWS resources.

How hard is it to spin up something that targets a homebrew API? In theory, we could use that to manage our microservice role discovery.

What’s an actual example usage of either? What would you be setting out to do by querying an API with terraform???

and not necessarily cloud. terraform is basically a CRUD wrapper around most any API, whatever it is… https://www.terraform.io/docs/providers/index.html

Providers - Terraform by HashiCorp

Terraform is used to create, manage, and manipulate infrastructure resources. Examples of resources include physical machines, VMs, network switches, containers, etc. Almost any infrastructure noun can be represented as a resource in Terraform.

the generic rest and openapi providers allow you to use terraform to manage anything with a compatible API, even if there is no implemented tf provider for that service
