Aiven Terraform provider¶
With Aiven’s Terraform provider, you can use an open-source infrastructure as code software tool to declare and manage your cloud services.
Recreating stateful services with Terraform will possibly delete the service and all its data before creating it again. Whenever the Terraform plan indicates that a service will be deleted or replaced, a catastrophic action is possibly about to happen.
Some properties, like project and the resource name, cannot be changed and it will trigger a resource replacement.
We recommend you set the
termination_protection property to true on all production services, it will prevent Terraform from removing the service. Be aware that any logical databases, topics or other configurations may be removed even when this setting is enabled. Be very careful!
