» Example Usage

provider "triton" {
  account = "AccountName"
  key_id  = "25:d4:a9:fe:ef:e6:c0:bf:b4:4b:4b:d4:a8:8f:01:0f"

  # If using a private installation of Triton, specify the URL, otherwise
  # set the URL according to the region you wish to provision.
  url = "https://us-west-1.api.joyentcloud.com"

  # If you want to use a triton account other than the main account, then
  # you can specify the username as follows

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported in the provider block:

  • account - (Required) This is the name of the Triton account. It can also be provided via the SDC_ACCOUNT or TRITON_ACCOUNT environment variables.
  • user - (Optional) This is the username to interact with the triton API. It can be provided via the SDC_USER or TRITON_USER environment variables.
  • key_material - (Optional) This is the private key of an SSH key associated with the Triton account to be used. If this is not set, the private key corresponding to the fingerprint in key_id must be available via an SSH Agent. It can be provided via the SDC_KEY_MATERIAL or TRITON_KEY_MATERIAL environment variables.
  • key_id - (Required) This is the fingerprint of the public key matching the key specified in key_path. It can be obtained via the command ssh-keygen -l -E md5 -f /path/to/key. It can be provided via the SDC_KEY_ID or TRITON_KEY_ID environment variables.
  • url - (Optional) This is the URL to the Triton API endpoint. It is required if using a private installation of Triton. The default is to use the Joyent public cloud us-west-1 endpoint. Valid public cloud endpoints include: us-east-1, us-east-2, us-east-3, us-sw-1, us-west-1, eu-ams-1. It can be provided via the SDC_URL or TRITON_URL environment variables.
  • insecure_skip_tls_verify (Optional - defaults to false) This allows skipping TLS verification of the Triton endpoint. It is useful when connecting to a temporary Triton installation such as Cloud-On-A-Laptop which does not generally use a certificate signed by a trusted root CA.
