This is just a brain dump to myself 🙂
I’m moving some functions from Ansible to Terraform and this is some basic commands:
How to find the CentOS 7 official AMI Image
aws ec2 describe-images \ --owners 'aws-marketplace' \ --filters 'Name=product-code,Values=aw0evgkw8e5c1q413zgy5pjce' \ --query 'sort_by(Images, &CreationDate)[-1].[ImageId]' \ --region 'eu-central-1' \ --output 'text'
How to find the Ubuntu official Image
Ubuntu AWS ami Locator: https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/locator/ec2/
AWS Marketplace (Filtered by SO and Free): https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/
terraform apply # Will create all machines on instance.tf
terraform destroy # Destroy managed infrastructure
terraform plan # Will show but not apply
terraform plan -out exampletest.out #
terraform appy exampletest.out #
terraform import aws_instance.example i-abcd1234
This command locates the AWS instance with ID i-abcd1234 and attaches its existing settings, as described by the EC2 API, to the name aws_instance.example in the Terraform state.
