Terraform Transip provider

Build Status

Provides resources for Transip resources using Transip API

Supported resources:

  • Domain name (data source, resource)
  • Domain name DNS records (resource)
  • VPS (data source, resource)
  • VPS private network (data source, resource)
  • VPS firewall (resource)
  • OpenStack Project (data source, resource)
  • OpenStack User (data source, resource)

Requirements

In order to use the provider you need a Transip account. For this account the API should be enabled and a private key should be created which is used for authentication (https://www.transip.eu/cp/account/api/).

Installation

Terraform 0.13

Add the following snippet to a .tf somewhere in your codebase and run terraform init to automatically download and install the provider:

terraform {
  required_providers {
    transip = {
      source = "aequitas/transip"
    }
  }
}

Terraform <=0.12

Download the latest binary release from the Releases page, unzip it to one of these directories: Plugin Locations. Or refer to Installing Plugins for more information.

Notes

  • The Transip API managed DNS Entries as a list property of a Domain object. In this implementation I have opted to give DNS entries their own resource transip_dns_record to make management more in line with other Terraform DNS Providers.

  • Not all resources (especially the VPS resource) have been thoroughly tested. Use with care.

Example

Also see examples in: examples/.

Have Terraform install provider on init (Terraform 0.13 only)

terraform {
  required_providers {
    transip = {
      source = "aequitas/transip"
    }
  }
}

# Enable Transip API, whitelist your IP, create private key and provide it here
provider "transip" {
  account_name = "example"
  private_key  = <<EOF
  -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
  ...
  -----END PRIVATE KEY-----
  EOF
}

# Or simply leave the provider empty when using the environment variables TRANSIP_ACCOUNT_NAME and TRANSIP_PRIVATE_KEY
# provider "transip" { }

# Get an existing domain as data source
data "transip_domain" "example_com" {
  name = "example.com"
}

# Or create/import a (new) domain name to be managed by Terraform
# resource "transip_domain" "example_com" {
#     name = "example.com"
# }

# Simple CNAME record
resource "transip_dns_record" "www" {
  domain  = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name    = "www"
  type    = "CNAME"
  content = ["@"]
}

# VPS Server with setup script and DNS record
resource "transip_vps" "test" {
  description = "example"
  product_name = "vps-bladevps-x1"
  operating_system = "ubuntu-18.04"

  # Script to run to provision the VPS
  install_text = <<EOF
  # install and enable firewall and basic webserver
  apt update
  apt install -yqq ufw nginx
  ufw allow 22/tcp
  ufw allow 80/tcp
  ufw allow 443/tcp
  ufw --force enable
  EOF
}
resource "transip_dns_record" "vps" {
  domain = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name   = "vps"
  type   = "A"

  content = [ transip_vps.test.ip_address ]
}

# A record with multiple entries, eg: for round robin DNS
resource "transip_dns_record" "test" {
  domain = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name   = "test"
  type   = "A"

  content = [
    "203.0.113.1",
    "203.0.113.2",
  ]
}

# IPv6 record
resource "transip_dns_record" "testv6" {
  domain = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name   = "test"
  expire = 300
  type   = "AAAA"

  content = [
    "2001:db8::1",
  ]
}

# Get an existing VPS as datasource
data "transip_vps" "test" {
  description = "example"
}

# Set hostname for VPS using data source
resource "transip_dns_record" "vps" {
  domain = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name   = "vps"
  type   = "A"

  content = [data.transip_vps.test.ip_address]
}
resource "transip_dns_record" "vps" {
  domain = data.transip_domain.example_com.id
  name   = "vps"
  type   = "AAAA"

  content = [data.transip_vps.test.ipv6_addresses[0]]
}

Development

This project can be build and tested like any regular Go project or Terraform provider. For convenience a Makefile is provided which contains commands to easy recurring development tasks.

Direnv and keyring are used to setup environment variables used during testing and to keep credentials out of the project directory.

Makefile

To test build the project simple run:

make

As will setup dependencies, build binaries in ./build/ and install them to ./terraform.d/plugins/ so they can be used for testing.

When source files change te dependencies and binaries will automatically be rebuild (if required).

Test suites

To run just the unit test suite (not requiring credentials or touching the API) run:

make test

To run the acceptance test suite as well run:

make test_acc

Note: the acceptance tests require Transip account credentials (username + certificate). The demo account won't work for this.

To configure these refer to .envrc.local.example file.

Warning: although care has been taken to prevent accidental modification of existing resource or unexpected costs to be made (by ordering product) this is not guaranteed. Use at own risk.

Testing .tf files

To plan or apply the .tf files in ./examples/ you can run the following command:

make plan

Or to apply:

make apply

Source code is rebuild (if needed) and the plugin updated before running the Terraform command, allowing for quick iteration and debugging.

To just target a single resource (and it dependants) use the targets argument like so:

make plan targets=transip_vps.test
