Terraform Provider


  • Terraform 0.10.x
  • Go 1.14 (to build the provider plugin)

Building The Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/; cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone [email protected]:digitalocean/terraform-provider-digitalocean

Enter the provider directory and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Using the provider

See the DigitalOcean Provider documentation to get started using the DigitalOcean provider.

Developing the Provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.11+ is required). You'll also need to correctly setup a GOPATH, as well as adding $GOPATH/bin to your $PATH.

To compile the provider, run make build. This will build the provider and put the provider binary in the $GOPATH/bin directory.

$ make build
$ $GOPATH/bin/terraform-provider-digitalocean

In order to test the provider, you can simply run make test.

$ make test

In order to run the full suite of acceptance tests, run make testacc.

Note: Acceptance tests create real resources, and often cost money to run.

$ make testacc

In order to run a specific acceptance test, use the TESTARGS environment variable. For example, the following command will run TestAccDigitalOceanDomain_Basic acceptance test only:

$ make testacc TESTARGS='-run=TestAccDigitalOceanDomain_Basic'

For information about writing acceptance tests, see the main Terraform contributing guide.

Releasing the Provider

This repository contains a GitHub Action configured to automatically build and publish assets for release when a tag is pushed that matches the pattern v* (ie. v0.1.0).

A Gorelaser configuration is provided that produces build artifacts matching the layout required to publish the provider in the Terraform Registry.

Releases will appear as drafts. Once marked as published on the GitHub Releases page, they will become available via the Terraform Registry.
