» CloudStack Provider

The CloudStack provider is used to interact with the many resources supported by CloudStack. The provider needs to be configured with a URL pointing to a running CloudStack API and the proper credentials before it can be used.

In order to provide the required configuration options you can either supply values for the api_url, api_key and secret_key fields, or for the config and profile fields. A combination of both is not allowed and will not work.

Use the navigation to the left to read about the available resources.

» Example Usage

# Configure the CloudStack Provider
provider "cloudstack" {
  api_url    = "${var.cloudstack_api_url}"
  api_key    = "${var.cloudstack_api_key}"
  secret_key = "${var.cloudstack_secret_key}"

# Create a web server
resource "cloudstack_instance" "web" {
  # ...

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • api_url - (Optional) This is the CloudStack API URL. It can also be sourced from the CLOUDSTACK_API_URL environment variable.

  • api_key - (Optional) This is the CloudStack API key. It can also be sourced from the CLOUDSTACK_API_KEY environment variable.

  • secret_key - (Optional) This is the CloudStack secret key. It can also be sourced from the CLOUDSTACK_SECRET_KEY environment variable.

  • config - (Optional) The path to a CloudMonkey config file. If set the API URL, key and secret will be retrieved from this file.

  • profile - (Optional) Used together with the config option. Specifies which CloudMonkey profile in the config file to use.

  • http_get_only - (Optional) Some cloud providers only allow HTTP GET calls to their CloudStack API. If using such a provider, you need to set this to true in order for the provider to only make GET calls and no POST calls. It can also be sourced from the CLOUDSTACK_HTTP_GET_ONLY environment variable.

  • timeout - (Optional) A value in seconds. This is the time allowed for Cloudstack to complete each asynchronous job triggered. If unset, this can be sourced from the CLOUDSTACK_TIMEOUT environment variable. Otherwise, this will default to 300 seconds.
