Terraform Integration Overview

Terraform is an infrastructure as code tool that lets you define both cloud and on-premises resources in human-readable configuration files that you can version, reuse, and share.

TiDB Cloud Terraform Provider is a plugin that allows you to use Terraform to manage TiDB Cloud resources, such as clusters, backups, and restores.

If you are looking for a simple way to automate resource provisioning and your infrastructure workflow, you can try out TiDB Cloud Terraform Provider, which provides you with the following capacities:

  • Get your project information.
  • Get cluster specification information, such as supported cloud providers, regions, and node sizes.
  • Manage your TiDB cluster, including creating, scaling, pausing, and resuming a cluster.
  • Create and delete a backup for your cluster.
  • Create a restore task for your cluster.

Resources and Data sources are the two most important elements in the Terraform language.

  • Data sources
