  2. Change or add the json file as required.
    Note: Keep in mind that Terraform will replace ${var} variables defined in the metadata.tf with their respective values when altering the inputs_schema file.

Completing the deployment

Once you set the parameters, take the following steps:

  1. Open a terminal and authenticate to GCP using the following command.
    gcloud auth application-default logingcloud auth application-default login
  2. In the terminal, go to the folder where you unzipped the templates and run the following commands:
    terraform init
    terraform applyterraform init
    terraform apply
  3. Type Yes when asked for approval. The deployment will then run. It usually takes between 1 to 1.5 hours to complete.
