Import is supported using the following syntax:

# Below are the steps to import volume :
# Step 1 - To import a volume , we need the id of that volume 
# Step 2 - To check the id of the volume we can make Get request to volume endpoint. eg. which will return list of all volume ids.
# Step 3 - Add empty resource block in tf file. 
# eg. 
# resource "powerstore_volume" "resource_block_name" {
  # (resource arguments)
# }
# Step 4 - Execute the command: terraform import "powerstore_volume.resource_block_name" "id_of_the_volume" (resource_block_name must be taken from step 3 and id must be taken from step 2)
# Step 5 - After successful execution of the command , check the state file
