Introduction

HPE OneView makes it simple to deploy and manage today’s complex hybrid cloud infrastructure. HPE OneView can help you transform your data center to software-defined, and it supports HPE’s broad portfolio of servers, storage, and networking solutions, ensuring the simple and automated management of your hybrid infrastructure. Software-defined intelligence enables a template-driven approach for deploying, provisioning, updating, and integrating compute, storage, and networking infrastructure.

The HPE OneView Terraform SDK enables developers to easily build integrations and scalable solutions with HPE OneView and HPE Image Streamer.

You can find the latest supported HPE OneView Terraform Provider SDK here

Getting Started

Installation and Configuration

Installing terraform-provider-oneview with Go

HPE OneView SDK for Terraform can be installed from Source or Docker container installation methods. You can either use a docker container which will have the HPE OneView SDK for terraform installed or perform local installation manually.

Docker Setup

The light weight containerized version of the HPE OneView SDK for Terraform is available in the Docker Store. The Docker Store image tag consist of two sections: <sdk_version-OV_version>

# Download and store a local copy of oneview-sdk-for-terraform and use it as a Docker Image.
$ docker pull hewlettpackardenterprise/hpe-oneview-sdk-for-terraform:v6.0.0-13-OV6.0
# Run docker commands below given, which  will in turn create a sh session 
# where you can create files, issue commands and execute the examples.
$ docker run -it docker pull hewlettpackardenterprise/hpe-oneview-sdk-for-terraform:v6.0.0-13-OV6.0 /bin/sh

Local Setup

Local installation requires

  • Installing Go
$ apt-get install build-essential git wget
$ wget https://golang.org/dl/go1.15.7.linux-amd64.tar.gz

#unzip and untar the file 
$ tar -zxvf go1.15.7.linux-amd64.tar.gz

# move it to /usr/local/ and create directory for Go.
$ mv go/ /usr/local/ 
$ mkdir ~/go
# Setting Environment Variable 
$ export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
$ export GOPATH=$HOME/go 
$ export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin:$GOPATH/bin
  • Installing Terraform

    Install Terraform 0.13.x from here and save it into /usr/local/bin/terraform folder (create it if it doesn't exists).

  • Install Oneview Terraform Provider SDK from Terraform Registry

    Terraform 0.13 added support for automatically downloading providers from the terraform registry. Add the following to your terraform project

terraform {
  required_providers {
    oneview = {
      source = "HewlettPackard/oneview"
    }
  }

Configuration

Environment Variables

Following environment variables can be set for testing:

# Required
$ export TF_VAR_endpoint=<ov_endpoint>
$ export TF_VAR_username=<ov_username>
$ export TF_VAR_password=<ov_password>
$ export TF_VAR_ssl_enabled=false
$ export TF_VAR_ov_domain=<ov_domain>

OneView Client Configuration

The OneView Client configuration options that can be passed during OneView Client object creation: The variables are defined in variable.tf file.

For OneView authentication, you need to provide the provider information in examples:

# Create terraform OneView client
provider "oneview" {
	ov_username  = "${var.username}"
	ov_password  = "${var.password}"
	ov_endpoint  = "${var.endpoint}"
	ov_sslverify = "${var.ssl_enabled}"
	ov_domain    = "${var.ov_domain}"
	ov_apiversion = <ov_apiversion>
	ov_ifmatch = "*"
}

🔒 Tip: Check the file permissions because the password is stored in clear-text as Environment Variable.

Image Streamer Client Configuration:

The Image Streamer (I3S) client is very much similar to the OneView client. Following extra environment variables should be set for testing:

# Required
$ export TF_VAR_i3s_endpoint=<i3s_endpoint>

Here we create the Image Streamer(I3S) client.

# Create I3s Client
provider "oneview" {
	ov_username      = "${var.username}"
	ov_password      = "${var.password}"
	ov_endpoint      = "${var.endpoint}"
	ov_i3s_endpoint  = "${var.i3s_endpoint}"
	ov_sslverify     = "${var.ssl_enabled}"
	ov_domain        = "${var.ov_domain}"
	ov_apiversion    = <i3s_apiversion>
	ov_ifmatch = "*"
}

🔒 Tip: Check the file permissions because the password is stored in clear-text as Environment Variable.

Testing the Terraform Resources:

In the home directory of project(terraform-provider-oneview) user needs to create (or) copy the file that is to be executed.

Sample example manifests are available in example directory.

The following terraform commands has to be executed to test the example.

$ terraform init 
$ terraform plan 
$ terraform apply

Note: Only a single terraform file (example file) should exist in the home folder to execute the above mentioned three commands. Once the resource is tested move that file to examples folder.

Note: Currently this SDK supports OneView API 2600 minimally, where we can test OneView API 2600 version with this SDK. If API version used is not supported then error will be thrown. If API version is not provided then appliance's maximum supported API version will be used.

API Implementation

A detailed list of the HPE OneView REST interfaces that have been implemented in this SDK can be found in the endpoints-support.md file.
