  • Terraform 0.13.x
  • Go 1.13.x (to build the provider plugin)


Build from source code

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone
$ cd terraform-provider-tencentcloud
$ go build .

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.


Configure credentials

You will need to have a pair of secret id and secret key to access Tencent Cloud resources, configure it in the provider arguments or export it in environment variables. If you don't have it yet, please access Tencent Cloud Management Console to create one.


Configure proxy info (optional)

If you are beind a proxy, for example, in a corporate network, you must set the proxy environment variables correctly. For example:

export http_proxy=http://your-proxy-host:your-proxy-port  # This is just an example, use your real proxy settings!
export https_proxy=$http_proxy
export HTTP_PROXY=$http_proxy
export HTTPS_PROXY=$http_proxy

Run demo

You can edit your own terraform configuration files. Learn examples from examples directory.

Terrafrom it

Now you can try your terraform demo:

terraform init
terraform plan
terraform apply

If you want to destroy the resource, make sure the instance is already in running status, otherwise the destroy might fail.

terraform destroy

Developer Guide


You will need to set an environment variable named TF_LOG, for more info please refer to Terraform official doc:


In your source file, import the standard package log and print the message such as:

log.Println("[DEBUG] the message and some import values: %v", importantValues)


The quicker way for development and debug is writing test cases. How to trigger running the test cases, please refer the script. How to write test cases, check the xxx_test.go files.

Avoid terrafrom init


This will disable the verify steps, so after you update this provider, you won't need to create new resources, but use previously saved state.


Keep in mind that document changes is also needed when resources, data sources, attributes changed in code.
