Terraform Provider


  • Terraform 0.12.x
  • Go 1.12 (to build the provider plugin)


For Terraform 0.12+ compatibility, the configuration should specify version 1.6 or higher:

provider "mysql" {
  version = "~> 1.6"

Building The Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/; cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone [email protected]:terraform-providers/terraform-provider-mysql

Enter the provider directory and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Developing the Provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.12+ 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 bin
$ $GOPATH/bin/terraform-provider-mysql

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

If you want to run the Acceptance tests on your own machine with a MySQL in Docker:

$ docker run --rm --name some-mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw -d -p 3306:3306 mysql:5.7
$ # wait for a few seconds to let MySQL stand up, check the logs with: docker logs -f some-mysql
$ export MYSQL_USERNAME=root
$ export MYSQL_ENDPOINT=localhost:3306
$ export MYSQL_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw
$ mysql -h localhost -u root -p -e "INSTALL PLUGIN mysql_no_login SONAME '';"
$ make testacc
$ docker rm -f some-mysql
