Resources in Detail

This lesson will explore what Terraform resources are, how they work, and how you can add properties to them.

Terraform resources

Resources in Terraform represent things in the real world. For example, a resource could be an AWS Load Balancer, an alarm in PagerDuty, a policy in Vault, etc. The resource is the bedrock of Terraform. They allow you to define how you want to create something in the real world. Remember, you can create resources representing things from multiple vendors (for example, multiple clouds) in a single project.
