Build Status

Terraform Provider for Proxmox

A Terraform Provider which adds support for Proxmox solutions.

Requirements

  • Terraform 0.11+
  • Go 1.13 (to build the provider plugin)

Table of contents

Building the Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/github.com/danitso/terraform-provider-proxmox

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/danitso; cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/danitso
$ git clone git@github.com:danitso/terraform-provider-proxmox

Enter the provider directory, initialize and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/danitso/terraform-provider-proxmox
$ make init
$ 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.

Configuration

Arguments

  • virtual_environment - (Optional) This is the configuration block for the Proxmox Virtual Environment
    • endpoint - (Required) The endpoint for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API
    • insecure - (Optional) Whether to skip the TLS verification step (defaults to false)
    • password - (Required) The password for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API
    • username - (Required) The username for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API

Environment variables

You can set up the provider by passing environment variables instead of specifying arguments.

  • PROXMOX_VE_ENDPOINT or PM_VE_ENDPOINT - The endpoint for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API
  • PROXMOX_VE_INSECURE or PM_VE_INSECURE - Whether to skip the TLS verification step
  • PROXMOX_VE_PASSWORD or PM_VE_PASSWORD - The password for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API
  • PROXMOX_VE_USERNAME or PM_VE_USERNAME - The username for the Proxmox Virtual Environment API
provider "proxmox" {
  virtual_environment {}
}
Usage
$ export PROXMOX_VE_ENDPOINT="https://hostname:8006"
$ export PROXMOX_VE_INSECURE="true"
$ export PROXMOX_VE_PASSWORD="a-strong-password"
$ export PROXMOX_VE_USERNAME="username@realm"
$ terraform plan

You can omit PROXMOX_VE_INSECURE, if the Proxmox Virtual Environment API is exposing a certificate trusted by your operating system.

Notes

When cloning an existing virtual machine, whether it's a template or not, the resource will only detect changes to the arguments which are not set to their default values.

Developing the Provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.13+ 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-proxmox
...

If you wish to contribute to the provider, please see CONTRIBUTING.md.

Testing the Provider

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

$ make test

Tests are limited to regression tests, ensuring backwards compability.

Known issues

Disk images cannot be imported by non-PAM accounts

Due to limitations in the Proxmox VE API, certain actions need to be performed using SSH. This requires the use of a PAM account (standard Linux account).

Disk images from VMware cannot be uploaded or imported

Proxmox VE is not currently supporting VMware disk images directly. However, you can still use them as disk images by using this workaround:

resource "proxmox_virtual_environment_file" "vmdk_disk_image" {
  content_type = "iso"
  datastore_id = "datastore-id"
  node_name    = "node-name"

  source_file {
    # We must override the file extension to bypass the validation code in the Proxmox VE API.
    file_name = "vmdk-file-name.img"
    path      = "path-to-vmdk-file"
  }
}

resource "proxmox_virtual_environment_vm" "example" {
  ...

  disk {
    datastore_id = "datastore-id"
    # We must tell the provider that the file format is vmdk instead of qcow2.
    file_format  = "vmdk"
    file_id      = "${proxmox_virtual_environment_file.vmdk_disk_image.id}"
  }

  ...
}

Snippets cannot be uploaded by non-PAM accounts

Due to limitations in the Proxmox VE API, certain files need to be uploaded using SFTP. This requires the use of a PAM account (standard Linux account).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
