» Importing

Supported in provider v2.5+

An existing direct network can be imported into this resource via supplying its path. The path for this resource is made of orgName.vdcName.networkName. For example, using this structure, representing a direct network that was not created using Terraform:

resource "vcd_network_direct" "tf-mynet" {
  name              = "my-net"
  org               = "my-org"
  vdc               = "my-vdc"
  external_network  = "COMPUTE"

You can import such isolated network into terraform state using this command

terraform import vcd_network_direct.tf-mynet my-org.my-vdc.my-net

NOTE: the default separator (.) can be changed using Provider.import_separator or variable VCD_IMPORT_SEPARATOR

After importing, if you run terraform plan you will see the rest of the values and modify the script accordingly for further operations.
