Terraform Cloud Director Supplier v3.13.0 is obtainable now, including help for Cloud Director 10.6 with many new options and enhancements.

Extending VCD Performance with Resolution Add-Ons

Resolution Add-Ons prolong Cloud Director providing with value-added functionalities. One can handle the assets and life cycle of options which might be custom-built to increase the performance of VMware Cloud Director.

A Resolution Add-On is the illustration of an answer that’s {custom} constructed for Cloud Director within the extensibility ecosystem. It encapsulates UI and API Cloud Director extensions along with their backend companies and lifecycle administration. Resolution Add-Ons are distributed as .iso recordsdata and may include quite a few components: UI plugins, vApps, customers, roles, runtime outlined entities, and extra.

Terraform VCD Supplier 3.13 provides help for Resolution Add-Ons with the next new assets and knowledge sources:

On prime of that, there are two new assets (with their knowledge sources, as typical) for Information Resolution configuration and publishing to tenants:

VMware Cloud Director extension for Information Options is a Resolution Add-On for Cloud Director, which allows multi-tenancy prospects to ship a portfolio of on-demand caching, messaging and database software program. Service suppliers can supply their tenants an built-in resolution, which permits them to function and handle data-as-a-service throughout personal clouds and sovereign clouds.

There’s a new guide page. For these preferring hands-on expertise, there are additionally HCL examples.

Resolution Add-On Configuration Instance (Information Resolution Extension)

The beneath code covers finish to finish setup of a Information Resolution Extension in a inexperienced subject – it covers configuration of Resolution Touchdown Zone, after which creation, instantiation and publishing of a Resolution Add-On.

Be aware: For brevity – these examples lack some referenced useful resource/knowledge supply definitions. An entire set of HCL scripts could be seen within the HCL examples and higher defined within the Data Solution Guide Page.

Dynamic Schema Validation for Resolution Add-On Instantiation

Every Resolution Add-On accommodates its personal inputs that have to be validated and useful resource vcd_solution_add_on_instance has a mechanism for dynamic input validation in the guide.

Configuring and Publishing Information Options

As soon as the DSE Resolution Add-On is instantiated and revealed, a supplier can leverage DSE particular assets to carry out registry configuration particulars and publish Information Resolution to tenants.

Auto-Scaling Assist for Container Service Extension Kubernetes Cluster

The Kubernetes Autoscaler can robotically regulate the scale of employee swimming pools in CSE. Terraform VCD Supplier 3.13 permits to configure the auto-scaling capabilities for each employee pool by specifying the minimal and most nodes. This can be utilized as a substitute of the prevailing machine_count argument:

When autoscaler_max_replicas and autoscaler_min_replicas are set in any employee pool, the Kubernetes Autoscaler is robotically deployed to the cluster, to be able to handle the employee swimming pools which might be configured this fashion. Extra particulars in regards to the Autoscaler could be learn in the official FAQ doc.

OpenID Join Assist

OpenID Join is an authentication layer on prime of the OAuth 2.0 protocol, which permits purchasers to obtain details about authenticated periods and end-users. Now you can configure organizations in VMware Cloud Director with Terraform VCD Supplier 3.13 to make use of this identification supplier resolution through the use of the vcd_org_oidc useful resource:

Within the instance above, a widely known endpoint is used to retrieve all of the wanted configuration parameters. When utilizing this type of endpoint, one also can override any of the obtained values, if wanted:

This useful resource can be utilized both by suppliers, to configure OIDC for the System group, or by tenants, to configure OIDC for every tenant.

VDC Template Assist

Suppliers can now create and handle VDC Templates with the vcd_org_vdc_template useful resource. A VDC template specifies a configuration for a corporation VDC and, optionally, an Edge Gateway and group VDC community.

The configuration of a VDC Template is similar to how configuring a VDC appears to be like like:

As soon as the VDC Template is created, it may be instantiated by any supplier, or by any tenant person with the required rights, and if it was set within the readably_by_org_ids argument. As a way to do this, one can leverage the vcd_org_vdc_template_instance useful resource:

Customers can management what to do when the vcd_org_vdc_template_instance useful resource is eliminated, with the delete_instantiated_vdc_on_removal flag and auxiliary flags delete_force and delete_recursive. In the event that they don’t need the useful resource to delete the VDC when it’s faraway from HCL configuration, delete_instantiated_vdc_on_removal=false will keep away from exactly that. That is helpful when the instantiated VDC is imported as a subsequent step, and fully managed by a vcd_org_vdc useful resource, as a result of customers can then discard the vcd_org_vdc_template_instance code block with none facet impact.

VCD and Group Affiliation (Multi-Web site)

An affiliation between VCDs is completed by the collaboration between the directors of the 2 websites (or the coordinated motion of an administrator that personal each VCDs). The information supply vcd_multisite_site_data permits the administrator to gather the affiliation knowledge wanted to arrange the operation. On the opposite facet, the administrator of the receiving VCD will use the useful resource vcd_multisite_site_association to set the connection. When each side have carried out each operations, the affiliation is finished.

Related operations (utilizing the info supply vcd_multisite_org_data and useful resource vcd_multisite_org_association are carried out to create an affiliation between organizations. There are 5 knowledge sources and a pair of assets to carry out the varied duties. Since it might be complicated to grasp what to make use of and when, we’ve additionally launched a common objective Site and Org association guide.

Right here’s an instance:

The administrator of web site 1 collects the info as follows, saving it to file site1.xml

The administrator of site2 will then create the affiliation:

After that, the 2 directors swap roles and run the identical operations in reverse order (site2 knowledge assortment and site1 affiliation).

There are two full examples about site association and organization association within the repository.

Checklist of New Assets and Information Sources

2 new information pages:

11 new assets:

13 new knowledge sources:

There are extra options and enhancements, which you’ll see within the project’s changelog. And, as at all times, we’re awaiting your suggestions and strategies in GitHub Issues and #vcd-terraform-dev Slack channel (https://the-code-community.slack.com).

Final however not least, there’s a new model v2.25.0 of Go SDK for VMware Cloud Director.
