» vsphere_custom_attribute

The vsphere_custom_attribute data source can be used to reference custom attributes that are not managed by Terraform. Its attributes are exactly the same as the vsphere_custom_attribute resource, and, like importing, the data source takes a name to search on. The id and other attributes are then populated with the data found by the search.

» Example Usage

data "vsphere_custom_attribute" "attribute" {
  name = "terraform-test-attribute"

» Argument Reference

  • name - (Required) The name of the custom attribute.

» Attribute Reference

In addition to the id being exported, all of the fields that are available in the vsphere_custom_attribute resource are also populated. See that page for further details.
