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 git@github.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
...

Testing

Running the acceptance test suite requires an F5 to test against. Set BIGIP_HOST, BIGIP_USER and BIGIP_PASSWORD to a device to run the tests against. By default tests will use the Common partition for creating objects. You can change the partition by setting BIGIP_TEST_PARTITION.

BIGIP_HOST=f5.mycompany.com BIGIP_USER=foo BIGIP_PASSWORD=secret make testacc

You can’t perform that action at this time.
