Fixed the documentation for ElastiCache Replication Group address #1542

Fixes #375

As exposed in the code, primary_endpoint_address is set when there are node groups, so when in a cluster mode.
configuration_endpoint_address is the exact opposite.

I'm not sure what I'm missing but I'm seeing the opposite: configuration endpoint only exists if cluster mode is enabled, and primary endpoint only exists if cluster mode is disabled...

@phunehehe Do you mind sharing a config which leads you to that conclusion?

I used the following (practically clustered Redis with 2 nodes):

resource "aws_vpc" "network" {
  cidr_block = ""

resource "aws_subnet" "main" {
  cidr_block = ""
  availability_zone = "eu-west-2a"
  vpc_id = "${}"

resource "aws_subnet" "secondary" {
  cidr_block = ""
  availability_zone = "eu-west-2b"
  vpc_id = "${}"

resource "aws_elasticache_subnet_group" "main" {
  name = "radek-test"
  subnet_ids = ["${}", "${}"]

resource "aws_elasticache_replication_group" "autoscaling_event_update_route53" {
  replication_group_id          = "asgevnt-route53"
  replication_group_description = "Autoscaling events updating Route53"

  engine_version                = "3.2.4"
  node_type                     = "cache.m4.large"
  number_cache_clusters         = "2"
  port                          = 6379

  subnet_group_name             = "${}"
  parameter_group_name          = "default.redis3.2"

  automatic_failover_enabled    = "true"
  availability_zones            = ["eu-west-2a", "eu-west-2b"]
  apply_immediately             = "true"
  maintenance_window            = "sun:01:00-sun:02:00"

  tags {
    Name                        = "autoscaling_event_update_route53"
    environment                 = "core"
    service                     = "main"

and it does expose the primary_endpoint_address:

$ echo 'aws_elasticache_replication_group.autoscaling_event_update_route53.primary_endpoint_address' | terraform console

so I believe @Ninir is right.

So I created a setup with various configurations and here's the output:

single	primary_endpoint_address	yes
single	configuration_endpoint_address	no
cluster	primary_endpoint_address	yes
cluster	configuration_endpoint_address	no
native_cluster	primary_endpoint_address	yes
native_cluster	configuration_endpoint_address	no
native_single	primary_endpoint_address	yes
native_single	configuration_endpoint_address	no
sharding	primary_endpoint_address	no
sharding	configuration_endpoint_address	yes

It would seem like configuration_endpoint_address exists when sharding is enabled, and primary_endpoint_address exists otherwise. When sharding is enabled, AWS console displays "Clustered Redis" in the "Mode" column.
