Building The Provider

$ git clone

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
