» digitalocean_volume_snapshot

Volume snapshots are saved instances of a block storage volume. Use this data source to retrieve the ID of a DigitalOcean volume snapshot for use in other resources.

» Example Usage

Get the volume snapshot:

data "digitalocean_volume_snapshot" "snapshot" {
  name_regex  = "^web"
  region      = "nyc3"
  most_recent = true
}

Reuse the data about a volume snapshot to create a new volume based on it:

data "digitalocean_volume_snapshot" "snapshot" {
  name_regex  = "^web"
  region      = "nyc3"
  most_recent = true
}

resource "digitalocean_volume" "foobar" {
  region      = "nyc3"
  name        = "baz"
  size        = 100
  snapshot_id = data.digitalocean_volume_snapshot.snapshot.id
}

» Argument Reference

  • name - (Optional) The name of the volume snapshot.

  • name_regex - (Optional) A regex string to apply to the volume snapshot list returned by DigitalOcean. This allows more advanced filtering not supported from the DigitalOcean API. This filtering is done locally on what DigitalOcean returns.

  • region - (Optional) A "slug" representing a DigitalOcean region (e.g. nyc1). If set, only volume snapshots available in the region will be returned.

  • most_recent - (Optional) If more than one result is returned, use the most recent volume snapshot.
