» vsphere_tag

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

» Example Usage

data "vsphere_tag_category" "category" {
  name = "terraform-test-category"

data "vsphere_tag" "tag" {
  name        = "terraform-test-tag"
  category_id = "${data.vsphere_tag_category.category.id}"

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) The name of the tag.
  • category_id - (Required) The ID of the tag category the tag is located in.

» Attribute Reference

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