Teeraform - Update Databases Firewall

Hi, we are migrating our infrastructure to use terraform.

Currently we have a shared redis database, and some apps / droplets that connects to it.

I’m setting up a terraform script to initialize a new droplet, but I need to add this one to the redis firewall, without changing the other rules in it.

It’s possible or I should do it manually every time?

Thank you

Hi there,

I believe that you should be able to do a terraform import for your existing firewall and then start managing it via Terraform as normal by assigning the new Droplet tags to it as you’ve mentioned in this question here:

Let me know how it goes!
