Deploying Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service Table Using Terraform and OCI Resource Manager

It’s easy to deploy NDCS tables on OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) using Terraform and Resource Manager’s Stack. We are going to use the OCI Resource Manager CLI to deploy NDCS Tables on Oracle Cloud. Before we proceed with this article, it is assumed that you are aware of NoSQL Cloud Service and know its basics, along with Terraform.

Terraform uses providers to interface between the Terraform engine and the supported cloud platform. The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Terraform provider is a component that connects Terraform to the OCI services that you want to manage. You can use the OCI Terraform provider, including Terraform Cloud and the OCI Resource Manager.

The OCI Resource Manager is an Oracle-managed service based on Terraform that uses Terraform configuration files to automate deployment and operations for the OCI resources supported by the OCI Terraform provider. Resource Manager allows you to share and manage infrastructure configurations and state files across multiple teams and platforms.


Deploying NoSQL Database Tables Using Terraform

  • To create resources in OCI, we need to configure terraform. Create the basic terraform configuration files for terraform provider definition, NoSQL resource definitions, authentication, and input variables.
  • Decide where to store the terraform configuration files. You can store these files in different sources, such as local folder or zip, Object Storage bucket, and source control systems, such as GitHub or GitLab.
  • Run the Resource Manager CLI commands to perform the following tasks:
    • Create a stack.
    • Generate and review the execution plan.
    • Run the Apply job to provision NoSQL resources.
    • Review log files, as needed.

Note:

We’re going to be working with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Resource Manager Command Line Interface (CLI) and executing these commands in the Cloud Shell using Console. This means you will need some information about your cloud tenancy and other items such as public or private key pairs handy. If you want to configure the OCI CLI on your local machine, refer to this documentation.

This article has the following topics:

Prerequisites

  • Basic understanding of Terraform. Read the brief introduction here.
  • An Oracle Cloud account and a subscription to the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service. If you do not already have an Oracle Cloud account you can start here.
  • OCI Terraform provider installed and configured.

Step 1: Create Terraform configuration files for NDCS Table or Index


Creating OCI Terraform provider configuration

Substep 1.1: Create OCI Terraform provider configuration

Create a new file named "provider.tf" that contains the OCI Terraform provider definition, and also associated variable definitions. The OCI Terraform provider requires ONLY the region argument.

However, you might have to configure additional arguments with authentication credentials for an OCI account based on the authentication method. The OCI Terraform provider supports three authentication methods:
  • API Key Authentication
  • Instance Principal Authorization
  • Security Token Authentication
The region argument specifies the geographical region in which your provider resources are created. To target multiple regions in a single configuration, you simply create a provider definition for each region and then differentiate by using a provider alias, as shown in the following example. Notice that only one provider, named "oci" is defined, and yet the oci provider definition is entered twice, once for the us-phoenix-1 region (with the alias "phx"), and once for the region us-ashburn-1 (with the alias "iad").
provider "oci" {
region = "us-phoenix-1"
   alias = "phx"
}
provider "oci" {
region = "us-ashburn-1"
alias = "iad"
}
In the example below, an region argument is required for the OCI Terraform provider. tenancy_ocid, user_ocid, private_key_path, and fingerprint arguments are required for API Key authentication. You can provide the value for region and API Key Authentication keys (tenancy_ocid, user_ocid, private_key_path, and fingerprint) as Environment Variables or within Terraform configuration variables (as mentioned in Substep 1.3: Loading Terraform Configuration Variables).
variable "tenancy_ocid" {
}
variable "user_ocid" {
}
variable "fingerprint" {
}
variable "private_key_path" {
}
variable "region" {
}

provider "oci" {
   region = var.region
   tenancy_ocid = var.tenancy_ocid
   user_ocid = var.user_ocid
   fingerprint = var.fingerprint
   private_key_path = var.private_key_path
}
Instance principal authorization allows your provider to make API calls from an OCI compute instance without needing the tenancy_ocid, user_ocid, private_key_path, and fingerprint attributes in your provider definition.

Note:

Instance principal authorization applies only to instances that are running in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
In the example below, an region argument is required for the OCI Terraform provider, and an auth argument is required for Instance Principal Authorization. You can provide the value for region argument as Environment Variables or within Terraform configuration variables (as mentioned in Substep 1.3: Loading Terraform Configuration Variables).
variable "region" {
}
provider "oci" {
   auth = "InstancePrincipal"
   region = var.region
}
Security Token authentication allows you to run Terraform using a token generated with Token-based Authentication for the CLI.

Note:

This token expires after one hour. Avoid using this authentication method when provisioning of resources takes longer than one hour. See Refreshing a Token for more information.
In the example below, region an argument is required for the OCI Terraform provider. The auth and config_file_profile arguments are required for Security Token authentication.
You can provide the value for API Key Authentication keys (tenancy_ocid, user_ocid, private_key_path, and fingerprint) as Environment Variables or in the OCI config file (~/.oci/config). You can also provide the value for region and config_file_profile as Environment Variables or within Terraform configuration variables (as mentioned in Substep 1.3: Loading Terraform Configuration Variables).
variable "region" {
}
variable "config_file_profile" {
}
provider "oci" {
auth = "SecurityToken"
  config_file_profile = var.config_file_profile
   region = var.region
}

Substep 1.2: Create NoSQL Terraform configuration

Create a new file named "nosql.tf" that contains the NoSQL terraform configuration resources for creating NoSQL Database Cloud Service tables or indexes. For more information about the NoSQL Database resources and data sources, see oci_nosql_table.

In the example below, we are creating 2 NoSQL tables. compartment_ocid argument is required for NoSQL Database resources such as tables and indexes. You can provide the value for compartment_ocid as Environment Variables or within Terraform configuration variables (as mentioned in Substep 1.3: Loading Terraform Configuration Variables).
variable "compartment_ocid" {
}

resource "oci_nosql_table" "nosql_demo" {
    compartment_id = var.compartment_ocid
    ddl_statement = "CREATE TABLE if not exists demo (ticketNo INTEGER, fullName STRING, contactPhone STRING, confNo STRING, gender STRING, bagInfo JSON, PRIMARY KEY (ticketNo))"
    name = "demo"
    table_limits {
        max_read_units = var.table_table_limits_max_read_units
        max_storage_in_gbs = var.table_table_limits_max_storage_in_gbs
        max_write_units = var.table_table_limits_max_write_units
    }
}

resource "oci_nosql_table" "nosql_demoKeyVal" {

    compartment_id = var.compartment_ocid
    ddl_statement = "CREATE TABLE if not exists demoKeyVal (key INTEGER GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY (START WITH 1 INCREMENT BY 1 NO CYCLE), value JSON, PRIMARY KEY (key))"
    name = "demoKeyVal"
    table_limits {
       max_read_units = var.table_table_limits_max_read_units
        max_storage_in_gbs = var.table_table_limits_max_storage_in_gbs
        max_write_units = var.table_table_limits_max_write_units
    }
}

Substep 1.3: Loading Terraform Configuration Variables

The next step is to create a file named "terraform.tfvars" and provide values for the required OCI Terraform provider arguments based on the authentication method.

Provide values for your IAM access and secret keys (tenancy_ocid, user_ocid, private_key_path, and fingerprint), region, and compartment_ocid arguments. You should already have an OCI IAM user with secret and access keys having sufficient permissions on NoSQL Database Cloud Service. Get those keys and store them in the file.

For example:
tenancy_ocid = "ocid1.tenancy.oc1..aaaaaaaaqljdu37xcfoqvyj47pf5dqutpxu4twoqc7hukwgpbavpdwkqxc6q"
user_ocid = "ocid1.user.oc1..aaaaaaaafxz473ypsc6oqiespihan6yi6obse3o4e4t5zmpm6rdln6fnkurq"
fingerprint = "2c:9b:ed:12:81:8d:e6:18:fe:1f:0d:c7:66:cc:03:3c"
private_key_path = "~/NoSQLLabPrivateKey.pem"
compartment_ocid = "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya"
region = "us-phoenix-1"

Provide values for region and compartment_ocid arguments.

For example:
region = "us-phoenix-1"
compartment_ocid = "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya"

Provide values for the region, compartment_ocid, and config_file_profile arguments.

For example:
region = "us-phoenix-1"
compartment_ocid = "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya"
config_file_profile = "PROFILE"

Substep 1.4: Declaring Input Variables

The last step is to create "variables.tf" and assign values to input variables in it. Click here to refer to Terraform documentation to check for the valid arguments or properties available for NoSQL Database. In the example, the default value of the read, write, and storage units for NoSQL table are set to 10, 10, and 1 respectively.
variable "table_table_limits_max_read_units" {
default = 10
}
variable "table_table_limits_max_write_units" {
default = 10
}
variable "table_table_limits_max_storage_in_gbs" {
default = 1
}

Using Cloud Shell from the Console, we have created all the required terraform configuration files for provider definition, NoSQL database resources, authentication values, and input variables.
Creating Terraform Config Files in Cloud Shell

Step 2: Where to Store Your Terraform Configurations


Where to store your terraform configuration files

When creating a stack with Resource Manager, you can select your Terraform configuration from the following sources.

Substep 2.1: Create Configuration Source Providers for Remote Terraform Configurations

You need to create a source configuration provider in case you want to use the remote terraform configurations that are hosted on a source control system, such as GitHub and GitLab.

For more information on how to create configuration source providers for remote Terraform configurations, see Managing Configuration Source Providers.

Step 3: Create a Stack from a File


Creating a Stack from a File

Use the command related to your file location. For Terraform configuration sources supported with Resource Manager, see Where to Store Your Terraform Configurations.

For this tutorial, we are going to create a stack using Instance Principal authentication method from a local terraform configuration zip file, terraform.zip. The terraform.zip file contains the following files:
  • provider.tf
  • nosql.tf
  • terraform.tfvars
  • variables.tf

Note:

In this tutorial, we are using OCI Resource Manager CLI commands to create a stack. You can perform the same task using OCI Resource Manager Console.
To create a stack from a file hosted on a source code control system, such as GitHub and GitLab.
oci resource-manager stack create-from-git-provider 
--compartment-id ocid1.tenancy.oc1..uniqueid 
--config-source-configuration-source-provider-id ocid.ormconfigsourceprovider.oc1..uniqueid 
--config-source-repository-url https://github.com/user/repo.git
--config-source-branch-name mybranch 
--display-name "My Stack from Git" 
--description "Create NoSQL Table" 
--variables file://variables.json
--working-directory ""
To create a stack from a Terraform configuration in an Object Storage bucket.
oci resource-manager stack create-from-object-storage 
--compartment-id ocid1.tenancy.oc1..uniqueid 
--config-source-namespace MyNamespace
--config-source-bucket-name MyBucket
--config-source-region PHX
--display-name "My Stack from Object Storage" 
--description "Create NoSQL Table" 
--variables file://variables.json
To create a stack from an uploaded configuration file (.zip)
oci resource-manager stack create 
--compartment-id ocid1.tenancy.oc1..uniqueid 
--config-source vcn.zip 
--variables file://variables.json
--display-name "My Example Stack" 
--description "Create NoSQL Table" 
--working-directory ""
Where,
  • --compartment-id is the OCID of the compartment where you want to create the stack.
  • --config-source is the name of a .zip file that contains one or more Terraform configuration files.
  • (Optional) --variables is the path to the file specifying input variables for your resources.

    The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Terraform provider requires additional parameters when running Terraform locally (unless you are using instance principals). For more information on using variables in Terraform, see Input Variables. See also Input Variable Configuration.

  • (Optional) --display-name is the friendly name for the new stack.
  • (Optional) --description is the description for the new stack.
  • (Optional) --working-directory is the root configuration file in the directory. If not specified, or if null as in this example, then the service assumes that the top-level file in the directory is the root configuration file.
For example:
oci resource-manager stack create 
--compartment-id ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya 
--config-source terraform.zip
Example response:
{
  "data": {
    "compartment-id": "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya",
    "config-source": {
      "config-source-type": "ZIP_UPLOAD",
      "working-directory": null
    },
    "defined-tags": {},
    "description": null,
    "display-name": "ormstack20220117104810",
    "freeform-tags": {},
    "id": "ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq",
    "lifecycle-state": "ACTIVE",
    "stack-drift-status": "NOT_CHECKED",
    "terraform-version": "1.0.x",
    "time-created": "2022-01-17T10:48:10.878000+00:00",
    "time-drift-last-checked": null,
    "variables": {}
  },
  "etag": "dd62ace0b9e9d825d825c05d4588b73fede061e55b75de6436b84fb2bb794185"
}
We have created a stack from the terraform configuration file(s) and generated a stack id. In the next step, this stack id is used to generate an execution plan for the deployment of NoSQL tables.
"id": "ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq"

Step 4: Generate an Execution Plan


Generate and review the execution plan

Note:

In this tutorial, we are using OCI Resource Manager CLI commands to generate an execution plan. You can perform the same task using OCI Resource Manager Console.
To generate an execution plan, run the following command:
oci resource-manager job create-plan-job 
–-stack-id <stack_OCID> 
--display-name "<friendly_name>"
For example:
oci resource-manager job create-plan-job 
--stack-id ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq
Example response:
{
  "data": {
    "apply-job-plan-resolution": null,
    "cancellation-details": {
      "is-forced": false
    },
    "compartment-id": "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya",
    "config-source": {
      "config-source-record-type": "ZIP_UPLOAD"
    },
    "defined-tags": {},
    "display-name": "ormjob20220117104856",
    "failure-details": null,
    "freeform-tags": {},
    "id": "ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaacrylnpglae4yvwo4q2r2tk5z5x5v6bwjsoxgn26moyg3eqwnt2aq",
    "job-operation-details": {
      "operation": "PLAN",
      "terraform-advanced-options": {
        "detailed-log-level": null,
        "is-refresh-required": true,
        "parallelism": 10
      }
    },
    "lifecycle-state": "ACCEPTED",
    "operation": "PLAN",
    "resolved-plan-job-id": null,
    "stack-id": "ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq",
    "time-created": "2022-01-17T10:48:56.324000+00:00",
    "time-finished": null,
    "variables": {},
    "working-directory": null
  },
  "etag": "a6f75ec1e205cd9105705fd7c8d65bf262159a7e733b27148049e70ce6fc14fe"
}
We have generated an execution plan from a stack. The Resource Manager creates a job with a unique id corresponding to this execution plan. This plan job id can be used later to review the execution plan details before running the apply operation to deploy the NoSQL database resources on the OCI cloud.
"id": "ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaacrylnpglae4yvwo4q2r2tk5z5x5v6bwjsoxgn26moyg3eqwnt2aq",
"job-operation-details": {
      "operation": "PLAN"
      ...
}

Substep 4.1: Review the Execution Plan

To review an execution plan, run the following command:
oci resource-manager job get-job-logs 
--job-id <plan_job_OCID>
For example:
oci resource-manager job get-job-logs 
--job-id ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaacrylnpglae4yvwo4q2r2tk5z5x5v6bwjsoxgn26moyg3eqwnt2aq

      "type": "TERRAFORM_CONSOLE"
    },
    {

      "type": "TERRAFORM_CONSOLE"
    },
...
This step is very important as it validates to see if the stack code contains any syntax errors, and exactly how many OCI resources are being added, updated, or destroyed. In the tutorial, we are deploying two NoSQL tables: demo and demoKeyVal.
{
 ...
      "message": "Plan: 2 to add, 0 to change, 0 to destroy.",
 ...
}

Step 5: Run an Apply Job


Run the Apply job to provision resources

  • To specify a plan job ("apply" an execution plan), use FROM_PLAN_JOB_ID:
    oci resource-manager job create-apply-job 
    --stack-id <stack_OCID> 
    --execution-plan-strategy FROM_PLAN_JOB_ID 
    --execution-plan-job-id <plan_job_OCID> 
    --display-name "Example Apply Job"
  • To automatically approve the apply job (no plan job specified), use AUTO_APPROVED:
    oci resource-manager job create-apply-job 
    --stack-id <stack_OCID> 
    --execution-plan-strategy AUTO_APPROVED 
    --display-name "Example Apply Job"
For example:
oci resource-manager job create-apply-job 
--stack-id ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq 
--execution-plan-strategy AUTO_APPROVED 
--display-name "Create NoSQL Tables Using Terraform"
Example response:
{
  "data": {
    "apply-job-plan-resolution": {
      "is-auto-approved": true,
      "is-use-latest-job-id": null,
      "plan-job-id": null
    },
    "cancellation-details": {
      "is-forced": false
    },
    "compartment-id": "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya",
    "config-source": {

    },
    "defined-tags": {},

        "detailed-log-level": null,
        "is-refresh-required": true,
        "parallelism": 10
      }
    },
    "lifecycle-state": "ACCEPTED",
    "operation": "APPLY",
    "resolved-plan-job-id": null,
    "stack-id": "ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq",
    "time-created": "2022-01-17T10:54:46.346000+00:00",

  },
  "etag": "4042a300e8f678dd6da0f49ffeccefed66902b51331ebfbb559da8077a728126"
}
We have run the apply operation on the execution plan from a stack. The Resource Manager creates a job with a unique id to run the apply operation. This apply job id can be later used to review the logs generated as part of NoSQL Database table deployment on OCI cloud.
"id": "ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaaqn4nsnfgi3th4rxolwqn3kftzzdpsw52pnfeyphi5dsxd6fhescq",
"job-operation-details": {
      "operation": "APPLY"
      ...
}

Substep 5.1: Verify the Status of Job

To verify the status of a job, run the following command:
oci resource-manager job get 
--job-id <job_OCID>
For example:
oci resource-manager job get 
--job-id ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaaqn4nsnfgi3th4rxolwqn3kftzzdpsw52pnfeyphi5dsxd6fhescq
Example response:

    },
    "cancellation-details": {
      "is-forced": false
    },
    "compartment-id": "ocid1.compartment.oc1..aaaaaaaawrmvqjzoegxbsixp5k3b5554vlv2kxukobw3drjho3f7nf5ca3ya",

      "execution-plan-strategy": "AUTO_APPROVED",
      "operation": "APPLY",
      "terraform-advanced-options": {
        "detailed-log-level": null,
        "is-refresh-required": true,
        "parallelism": 10
      }
    },
    "lifecycle-state": "SUCCEEDED",
    "operation": "APPLY",
    "resolved-plan-job-id": null,
    "stack-id": "ocid1.ormstack.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaa7jrci2s5iav5tdxpl6ucwo2dwazzrdkfhs6bxiohgcpkscmr57bq",
    "time-created": "2022-01-17T10:54:46.346000+00:00",
    "time-finished": "2022-01-17T10:55:28.853000+00:00",

}
You can check the status of your apply job to verify if the job is SUCCESSFUL or FAILED.
{
...
      "lifecycle-state": "SUCCEEDED",
...
}

Substep 5.2: View the Log for a Job

To view the log for a job, run the following command:
oci resource-manager job get-job-logs-content 
--job-id <job_OCID>
For example:
oci resource-manager job get-job-logs-content
--job-id ocid1.ormjob.oc1.phx.aaaaaaaaqn4nsnfgi3th4rxolwqn3kftzzdpsw52pnfeyphi5dsxd6fhescq

This step is very important as it confirms exactly how many OCI resources were added, updated, or destroyed. In the tutorial, we have successfully deployed two NoSQL tables: demo and demoKeyVal.
{
 ...
      "message": "Apply complete! Resources: 2 added, 0 changed, 0 destroyed.",
 ...
}

We have covered a lot of details in this tutorial. We created terraform configuration files required for deployment of NoSQL database tables on OCI cloud and then configured the source location for these files. We then used the OCI Resource Manager CLI to create a stack, generate an execution plan, and run apply job on the execution plan.
