In this article, we will learn how to create a blueprint out of a Terraform module. You can create multiple blueprints out of the same Terraform module, each with its own configurations (cloud account and region, inputs).


  • Terraform module associated to the space

To create a blueprint out of a Terraform module:

  1. Open the Blueprints page and select the Terraform Blueprints tab.
  2. Click the New blueprint button.
    A window pops up, listing the Terraform modules that are available in your space.
  3. Select the suitable Terraform module and click Confirm.
  4. Fill in the Terraform module details for this blueprint (Mandatory parameters are indicated with *):
    • General *:
      • Name *: Displays the module’s name.
      • Alias *: Provide a display name for the blueprint.
      • Description: Provide an informative description for the module.

      • HCL: Select the checkbox to define the input value in HCL format. In HCL format, specify the value as a single line. Supported value types: bool, int, map, list, etc. If the checkbox is not selected, the value will be treated as a string.
