Example Usage from GitHub
resource "aws_storagegateway_gateway" "this" {
  gateway_ip_address = var.gateway_ip
  gateway_name     = "storage-gateway"
  gateway_timezone = "GMT"
  gateway_type     = "FILE_S3"
resource "aws_storagegateway_gateway" "this" {
  activation_key                              = var.activation_key
  average_download_rate_limit_in_bits_per_sec = var.average_download_rate_limit_in_bits_per_sec
  average_upload_rate_limit_in_bits_per_sec   = var.average_upload_rate_limit_in_bits_per_sec
  cloudwatch_log_group_arn                    = var.cloudwatch_log_group_arn
  gateway_ip_address                          = var.gateway_ip_address
resource "aws_storagegateway_gateway" "storage-gateway" {

  gateway_ip_address = aws_instance.ec2-FileGateway.public_ip
  gateway_name       = "storage-gateway"
  gateway_timezone   = "GMT+9:00"
  gateway_type       = "FILE_S3"

Review your Terraform file for AWS best practices

Shisho Cloud, our free checker to make sure your Terraform configuration follows best practices, is available (beta).


Explanation in Terraform Registry

Manages an AWS Storage Gateway file, tape, or volume gateway in the provider region.

NOTE: The Storage Gateway API requires the gateway to be connected to properly return information after activation. If you are receiving The specified gateway is not connected errors during resource creation (gateway activation), ensure your gateway instance meets the Storage Gateway requirements.

Tips: Best Practices for The Other AWS Amazon S3 Resources

In addition to the aws_s3_bucket_public_access_block, AWS Amazon S3 has the other resources that should be configured for security reasons. Please check some examples of those resources and precautions.



Ensure S3 bucket-level Public Access Block restricts public bucket policies

It is better to enable S3 bucket-level Public Access Block if you don't need public buckets.



Ensure S3 bucket access policy is well configured

It is better to configure the S3 bucket access policy properly to limit it unless explicitly required.

Review your AWS Amazon S3 settings

In addition to the above, there are other security points you should be aware of making sure that your .tf files are protected in Shisho Cloud.
