IONOS Cloud Terraform Provider

The IonosCloud provider gives the ability to deploy and configure resources using the IonosCloud APIs.

Migrating from the ProfitBricks provider

Please see the Documentation on how to migrate from the ProfitBricks provider.


  • Terraform 0.12.x
  • Go 1.13 (to build the provider plugin)
NOTE: In order to use a specific version of this provider, please include the following block at the beginning of your terraform config files details:
provider "ionoscloud" {
version = "~> 6.2.0"

Building The Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/
$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/; cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone [email protected]:ionos-cloud/terraform-provider-ionoscloud
Enter the provider directory and build the provider
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Using the provider

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

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-ionoscloud
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

Certificate pinning:

You can enable certificate pinning if you want to bypass the normal certificate checking procedure, by doing the following:
Set env variable IONOS_PINNED_CERT=<insert_sha256_public_fingerprint_here>
You can get the sha256 fingerprint most easily form the browser by inspecting the certificate.
