This is the Terraform provider for RightScale. Acceptance into the terraform community and as an official provider is now in progress, but as of this version all tests, docs, and sufficient resources for full operational coverage is complete and tested. [ Note that instructions below are forward-looking for where this repo will move in the near future. ]

Terraform Provider


  • Terraform >= 0.10.8
  • Go >= 1.8 (to build the provider plugin)
  • Dep >= 0.3.2 (Handle dependencies)

Building The Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/; cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone

Enter the provider directory and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Using the provider

See the RightScale Provider documentation to get started using the RightScale provider.

Developing the Provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.8+ 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-rightscale

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

$ make test

In order to run the full suite of Acceptance tests, run make testacc.

Note: Acceptance tests create real resources, and often cost money to run.

$ make testacc

To get full debug output (including network dumps) set TF_LOG to TRACE level:

$ TF_LOG=TRACE terraform apply
$ TF_LOG=TRACE make test
