» map Function

The map function is no longer available. Prior to Terraform v0.12 it was the only available syntax for writing a literal map inside an expression, but Terraform v0.12 introduced a new first-class syntax.

To update an expression like map("a", "b", "c", "d"), write the following instead:

  a = "b"
  c = "d"

The { ... } braces construct an object value, and then the tomap function then converts it to a map. For more information on the value types in the Terraform language, see Type Constraints.

  • tomap converts an object value to a map.
  • zipmap constructs a map dynamically, by taking keys from one list and values from another list.
