Terraform files

provider.tf

This file contains subscription details and backend details where we are going to store the tfstate file.

main.tf

This file will create the AKS cluster with log analytics workspace.

variables.tf

This file contains all the variable details.

outputs.tf

Once the cluster created, we need some details to access the Kubernetes, with outputs.tf files we can get those details.

Once all the files created, lets start the execution.

Terraform initialization

terraform init
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Execute the above command to initialize the Terraform deployment. This command downloads the Azure modules required to manage our Azure resources.

Terraform plan execution

terraform plan
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Execute the above command to create an execution plan. This command creates an execution plan, however doesn’t execute it. Instead, it determines what moves are critical to create the configuration targeted in our configuration files. This sample approves us to confirm whether the execution format suits our expectations before making any modifications to true resources.

Applying the Terraform Execution Plan

terraform apply
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Execute the above command to use the execution plan to our cloud infrastructure.
