Updated HashiCorp Terraform Provider for Azure Stack Hub

 

We are excited to announce the latest updates to the Terraform provider for Azure Stack Hub – Version 1.0.0! We worked closely with our partner HashiCorp to bring some of their latest features for Terraform to Azure Stack Hub systems everywhere.

 

For context, Terraform is an infrastructure as code tool that allows a user to define resources in human-readable configuration files called HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language) templates. Terraform providers interact with APIs to manage resources on Azure Stack Hub and other cloud services, including Azure, in one place. The extensible provider model is one of Terraform’s major value-adds, allowing us to use a single toolset to configure and deploy infrastructure, configuration and application deployments on different platforms and layers.

Here are some notable changes from this update:

  • This latest release has added support for Azure Stack Hub 2020-09-01 API profile.
  • VM and VMSS resources are now split into Linux and Windows versions for enhanced validation. These resources now match the AzureRM provider.
  • Azure Stack Hub Terraform provider has been updated to support KeyVault APIs
    • Terraform can now be used to create KeyVault resources and set access policies.
    • Data sources have also been updated to support KeyVault
  • Terraform will now support subscriptions on Azure Stack Hub
  • A new features block to configure provider behavior from within your Terraform configuration.
  • The provider now prevents overwriting existing resources and requires terraform import to bring existing resources into the Terraform state
  • 8 new DNS resources covering almost every API
  • Resource group Safe Delete ON by default - Terraform now checks during the deletion of a Resource Group for remaining child items and will raise an error if present. This behavior can be controlled using the prevent_deletion_if_contains_resources feature flag in the resource_group block within the features block.
  • Additional changes to Network and Compute resources - Please visit the Azure Stack provider v1.0 Upgrade Guide for all changes.

 

NOTE: Version 1.0 of the Azure Stack provider supports Terraform 0.12 and later. Terraform 0.10 and 0.11 are no longer supported with this release.
