Developing the Provider ⚒️

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.12 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-cohesity

In order to test the provider, you can simply run make test.

$ make test

In order to run a specific acceptance test, change the variables in acceptance_test_variables.go to suit your environment and run make testacc

Note: Set the environment variables for configuring the Cohesity provider and sensitive resource arguments not set in the acceptance_test_variables.go file

$ make testacc TEST=./cohesity TESTARGS='-run=TestAccVirtualEditionCluster_basic'
