Automate Alibaba Cloud infra building with Terraform (step 1)

In this series, you will learn how to use Terraform with Alibaba Cloud. In this first story, we will create a provider for Alibaba Cloud (or Aliyun).

In this story, we will:

  • Create a provider.tf file,
  • Specify alicloud as provider,
  • Provide credentials,
  • Store the infrastructure state in an OSS bucket instead of a simple local terraform.tfstate file.
