As companies start to build infrastructure using Terraform, the logic required to build self-service automation becomes complex. That's why HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language) contains expressions that can perform calculations within Terraform configurations. Integrating conditional logic into modules allows them to become dynamic and reusable for different scenarios. 

In this lab, you will create a Storage Account Module that contains conditional logic for deploying a Storage Account. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this lab you will be able to:

  • Understand how Terraform modules can be made dynamic for reusability
  • Learn about using conditional expressions within Terraform configurations

Intended Audience

This lab is intended for:

  • Individuals studying to take the HashiCorp Certified: Terraform Associate exam
  • Anyone interested in learning how to use Terraform to manage Cloud Service Providers
