# commands to run this tf file : terraform init && terraform apply --auto-approve

# Get all node details present on the cluster
data "powerflex_node" "example1" {

# Get node details using node IDs
data "powerflex_node" "example2" {
  node_ids = ["Node_ID1", "Node_ID2"]

# Get node details using IP addresses
data "powerflex_node" "example3" {
  ip_addresses = ["IP1", "IP2"]

# Get node details using service tags
data "powerflex_node" "example4" {
  service_tags = ["Service_Tag1", "Service_Tag2"]

# Get node details using nodepool IDs
data "powerflex_node" "example5" {
  node_pool_ids = ["NodePool_ID1", "NodePool_ID2"]

# Get node details using nodepool names
data "powerflex_node" "example6" {
  node_pool_names = ["NodePool_Name1", "NodePool_Name2"]

output "node_result" {
  value = data.powerflex_node.example1.node_details

After the successful execution of above said block, we can see the output by executing terraform output command. Also, we can fetch information via the variable: data.powerflex_node.datasource_block_name.attribute_name where datasource_block_name is the name of the data source block and attribute_name is the attribute which user wants to fetch.
