powerflex_volume (Data Source)

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

Note: Only one of names, id, storage_pool_id and storage_pool_name can be provided at a time.

# This datasource reads volumes either by id or name or storage_pool_id or storage_pool_name where user can provide a value to any one of them
# If it is an empty datsource block , then it will read all the volumes
# If id or name is provided then it reads a particular volume with that id or name
# If storage_pool_id or storage_pool_name is provided then it will return the volumes under that storage pool

data "powerflex_volume" "volume" {

  id = "4570761d00000024"
  #name = "cosu-ce5b8a2c48"
  #storage_pool_id= "c98e26e500000000"
  #storage_pool_name= "pool2"

output "volumeResult" {
  value = data.powerflex_volume.volume.volumes

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_volume.volume.attribute_name where attribute_name is the attribute which user wants to fetch.
