I’m setting up snowplow in GCP, following the guide on Quick Start Installation Guide on GCP - Snowplow Docs
While running the
terraform apply command the first time, the Cloud SQL Admin API wasn’t enabled, so I got an error about that. After enabling the API, I ran the command again, and got the same error message. Then, as suggested in the message, I waited a few minutes and tried once more, but this time I got an error message telling me that the database instance already existed.
My knowledge of Terraform is close to non-existing, so my next attempt involved deleting the tfstate and tfstate.backup file before running
terraform plan and
terraform apply again.
Now, I’m getting error messages telling me that a bunch of resources (loadbalancer, service-account, firewall etc) already exist.
I would think there was a way to tell terraform to skip creation of existing resources, or that the
terraform plan command could accommodate something similar, but from what I can gather, this seems not possible…
How would you suggest I proceed?
