Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name - (Required) Specifies the name of the template deployment. Changing this forces a new resource to be created.
  • resource_group_name - (Required) The name of the resource group in which to create the template deployment.
  • deployment_mode - (Required) Specifies the mode that is used to deploy resources. This value could be either Incremental or Complete. Note that you will almost always want this to be set to Incremental otherwise the deployment will destroy all infrastructure not specified within the template, and Terraform will not be aware of this.
  • template_body - (Optional) Specifies the JSON definition for the template.
  • parameters - (Optional) Specifies the name and value pairs that define the deployment parameters for the template.

Attributes Reference
