» consul_nodes

The consul_nodes data source returns a list of Consul nodes that have been registered with the Consul cluster in a given datacenter. By specifying a different datacenter in the query_options it is possible to retrieve a list of nodes from a different WAN-attached Consul datacenter.

» Example Usage

data "consul_nodes" "read-dc1-nodes" {
  query_options {
    # Optional parameter: implicitly uses the current datacenter of the agent
    datacenter = "dc1"

# Set the description to a whitespace delimited list of the node names
resource "example_resource" "app" {
  description = "${join(" ", formatlist("%s", data.consul_nodes.node_names))}"

  # ...

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • datacenter - (Optional) The Consul datacenter to query. Defaults to the same value found in query_options parameter specified below, or if that is empty, the datacenter value found in the Consul agent that this provider is configured to talk to.

  • query_options - (Optional) See below.

The query_options block supports the following:

  • allow_stale - (Optional) When true, the default, allow responses from Consul servers that are followers.

  • require_consistent - (Optional) When true force the client to perform a read on at least quorum servers and verify the result is the same. Defaults to false.

  • token - (Optional) Specify the Consul ACL token to use when performing the request. This defaults to the same API token configured by the consul provider but may be overriden if necessary.

  • wait_index - (Optional) Index number used to enable blocking quereis.

  • wait_time - (Optional) Max time the client should wait for a blocking query to return.

» Attributes Reference

The following attributes are exported:

  • datacenter - The datacenter the keys are being read from to.
  • node_ids - A list of the Consul node IDs.
  • node_names - A list of the Consul node names.
  • nodes - A list of nodes and details about each Consul agent. The list of per-node attributes is detailed below.

The following is a list of the per-node attributes contained within the nodes map:

  • id - The Node ID of the Consul agent.
  • meta - Node meta data tag information, if any.
  • name - The name of the Consul node.
  • address - The IP address the node is advertising to the Consul cluster.
  • tagged_addresses - List of explicit LAN and WAN IP addresses for the agent.
