Terraform Provider


  • Terraform 0.10.x
  • Go 1.11 (to build the provider plugin)

Building The Provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

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

Enter the provider directory and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Using the provider

Usage examples can be found in the Terraform provider documentation

Developing the Provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.11+ 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-postgresql

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.


  • Acceptance tests create real resources, and often cost money to run.
  • If ran locally docker-compose needs to be in the $PATH
$ make testacc

In order to manually run some Acceptance test locally, run the following commands:

# spins up a local docker postgres container
make testacc_setup 

# Load the needed environment variables for the tests
source tests/

# Run the test(s) that you're working on as often as you want
TF_LOG=INFO go test -v ./postgresql -run ^TestAccPostgresqlRole_Basic$

# cleans the env and tears down the postgres container
make testacc_cleanup
