Building the Provider
Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/github.com/terraform-providers/terraform-provider-bigip
$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/terraform-providers; cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/terraform-providers $ git clone email@example.com:F5Networks/terraform-provider-bigip
Enter the provider directory and build the provider
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/terraform-providers/terraform-provider-bigip $ make build
Using the Provider
If you're building the provider, follow the instructions to install it as a plugin. After placing it into your plugins directory, run terraform init to initialize it.
Developing the Provider
If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.11+ is required). You'll also need to correctly setup a GOPATH, as well as adding $GOPATH/bin to your $PATH.
To compile the provider, run make build. This will build the provider and put the provider binary in the $GOPATH/bin directory.
$ make build ... $ $GOPATH/bin/terraform-provider-bigip ...
Running the acceptance test suite requires an F5 to test against. Set
BIGIP_PASSWORD to a device to run the tests against. By default tests will use the
partition for creating objects. You can change the partition by setting
BIGIP_HOST=f5.mycompany.com BIGIP_USER=foo BIGIP_PASSWORD=secret make testacc
