powerflex_storage_pool (Data Source)

This datasource is used to query the existing storage pools from PowerFlex array. The information fetched from this datasource can be used for getting the details / for further processing in resource block.

Note: Either protection_domain_name or protection_domain_id is required. But not both.

Note: Either storage_pool_names or storage_pool_ids is required. But not both.

# To read storage pool, either protection_domain_name or protection_domain_id must be provided
# This datasource reads a list of storage pools either by storage_pool_ids or storage_pool_names where user can provide a list of ids or names
# if both storage_pool_ids and storage_pool_names are not provided , then it will read all the storage pool under the protection domain
# Both storage_pool_ids and storage_pool_names can't be provided together .
# Both protection_domain_name and protection_domain_id can't be provided together

data "powerflex_storage_pool" "example" {
  //protection_domain_name = "domain1"
  protection_domain_id = "202a046600000000"
  //storage_pool_ids = ["c98ec35000000002", "c98e26e500000000"]
  storage_pool_names = ["pool2", "pool1"]

output "storagePoolresult" {
  value = data.powerflex_storage_pool.example.storage_pools

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_storage_pool.example.attribute_name where attribute_name is the attribute which user wants to fetch.
