» vsphere_tag_category

The vsphere_tag_category data source can be used to reference tag categories that are not managed by Terraform. Its attributes are exactly the same as the vsphere_tag_category 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_tag_category" "category" {
  name = "terraform-test-category"

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) The name of the tag category.

» Attribute Reference

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