Creating a Stack from a Private Template

Create a stack in Resource Manager from a template. A template is a prebuilt Terraform configuration for deploying cloud resources in a common scenario.

For more information about templates, see Oracle-Provided Templates and Managing Private Templates.

    1. Open the navigation menu and click Developer Services. Under Resource Manager, click Private Templates.
    2. On the Private templates page, select the compartment that contains the private template that you want.
    3. Click the name of the private template that you want.
    4. On the Template information page, click Create stack.
      The Create stack page opens with the private template already selected.
    5. (Optional) To use custom providers, select Use custom providers and then select the bucket that contains the custom provider.
    6. (Optional) Edit the default stack name and enter a stack description. Avoid entering confidential information.
    7. Select the compartment where you want to create the stack.
    8. For Terraform version, select the version used by the Terraform configuration.
    9. (Optional) Click Show advanced options and assign tags to the stack.
      • Tag namespace: To add a defined tag, select an existing namespace. To add a free-from tag, leave the value blank.
      • Tag key: To add a defined tag, select an existing tag key. To add a free-form tag, type the key name that you want.
      • Tag value: Type the tag value that you want.
      • Add tag: Click to add another tag.
    10. Click Next.
    11. In the Configure variables panel, review the variables listed from the Terraform configuration and change as needed.

      Don't add your private key or other confidential information to configuration variables.
    12. Click Next.
    13. In the Review panel, verify the stack configuration.
    14. (Optional) To automatically provision resources on creation of the stack, select Run apply.
      Run apply is selected by default for stacks created from the Deploy to Oracle Cloud button or from Marketplace.
    15. Click Create.

    The stack is created and its Stack details page opens.

    If you selected Run apply, then Resource Manager runs the apply action on the new stack.
