Upgrade cloudscale.ch Terraform module from v2 to v3

When migrating from v2 to v3, the following breaking changes require manual changes to the Terraform state of existing clusters:


You need to be able to execute the following CLI tools locally:

Setup environment

  1. Access to API

    # For example: https://api.syn.vshn.net
    # IMPORTANT: do NOT add a trailing `/`. Commands below will fail.
    export COMMODORE_API_URL=<lieutenant-api-endpoint>
    export COMMODORE_API_TOKEN=<lieutenant-api-token>
    export CLUSTER_ID=<lieutenant-cluster-id> # Looks like: c-<something>
    export TENANT_ID=$(curl -sH "Authorization: Bearer ${COMMODORE_API_TOKEN}" ${COMMODORE_API_URL}/clusters/${CLUSTER_ID} | jq -r .tenant)
    # From https://git.vshn.net/-/profile/personal_access_tokens, "api" scope is sufficient
    export GITLAB_TOKEN=<gitlab-api-token>
    export GITLAB_USER=<gitlab-user-name>
  2. Connect with Vault

    export VAULT_ADDR=https://vault-prod.syn.vshn.net
    vault login -method=ldap username=<your.name>
  3. Compile the cluster catalog to create a local working directory

    commodore catalog compile "${CLUSTER_ID}"

Migrate Terraform state

  1. Configure Terraform secrets

    export CLOUDSCALE_API_TOKEN=$(vault kv get -format=json \
      clusters/kv/${TENANT_ID}/${CLUSTER_ID}/cloudscale \
      | jq -r '.data.data.token')
    cat <<EOF > ./terraform.env
  2. Setup Terraform

    Prepare Terraform execution environment
    # Set terraform image and tag to be used
      yq eval ".parameters.openshift4_terraform.images.terraform.image" \
      yq eval ".parameters.openshift4_terraform.images.terraform.tag" \
    # Generate the terraform alias
    alias terraform='docker run -it --rm \
      -e REAL_UID=$(id -u) \
      --env-file ${base_dir}/terraform.env \
      -w /tf \
      -v $(pwd):/tf \
      --ulimit memlock=-1 \
      "${tf_image}:${tf_tag}" /tf/terraform.sh'
    export GITLAB_REPOSITORY_URL=$(curl -sH "Authorization: Bearer ${COMMODORE_API_TOKEN}" ${COMMODORE_API_URL}/clusters/${CLUSTER_ID} | jq -r '.gitRepo.url' | sed 's|ssh://||; s|/|:|')
    export GITLAB_CATALOG_PROJECT_ID=$(curl -sH "Authorization: Bearer ${GITLAB_TOKEN}" "https://git.vshn.net/api/v4/projects?simple=true&search=${GITLAB_REPOSITORY_NAME/.git}" | jq -r ".[] | select(.ssh_url_to_repo == \"${GITLAB_REPOSITORY_URL}\") | .id")
    export GITLAB_STATE_URL="https://git.vshn.net/api/v4/projects/${GITLAB_CATALOG_PROJECT_ID}/terraform/state/cluster"
    pushd catalog/manifests/openshift4-terraform/
    Initialize Terraform
    terraform init \
      "-backend-config=address=${GITLAB_STATE_URL}" \
      "-backend-config=lock_address=${GITLAB_STATE_URL}/lock" \
      "-backend-config=unlock_address=${GITLAB_STATE_URL}/lock" \
      "-backend-config=username=${GITLAB_USER}" \
      "-backend-config=password=${GITLAB_TOKEN}" \
      "-backend-config=lock_method=POST" \
      "-backend-config=unlock_method=DELETE" \
  3. Migrate state

    Run the migration script
    Verify state using plan
    # No resources, except the hieradata git checkout, should be recreated.
    terraform plan
Terraform may want to create the hieradata git checkout. This is expected and can be ignored.
