Enables you to manage DNS zones within Azure DNS. These zones are hosted on Azure's name servers to which you can delegate the zone from the parent domain.

Example Usage

resource "azurerm_resource_group" "test" {
   name = "acceptanceTestResourceGroup1"
   location = "West US"
resource "azurerm_dns_zone" "test" {
   name = ""
   resource_group_name = "${}"

Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) The name of the DNS Zone. Must be a valid domain name.

  • resource_group_name - (Required) Specifies the resource group where the resource exists. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.

  • tags - (Optional) A mapping of tags to assign to the resource.

Attributes Reference

The following attributes are exported:

  • id - The DNS Zone ID.
  • max_number_of_record_sets - (Optional) Maximum number of Records in the zone. Defaults to 1000.
  • number_of_record_sets - (Optional) The number of records already in the zone.
  • name_servers - (Optional) A list of values that make up the NS record for the zone.


DNS Zones can be imported using the resource id, e.g.

terraform import azurerm_dns_zone.zone1 /subscriptions/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/resourceGroups/mygroup1/providers/Microsoft.Network/dnsZones/zone1
