Parameters

The following arguments are supported:

  • instance - (Required) The name or relative resource id of the instance that owns the table.

  • table - (Required) The name or relative resource id of the table to manage IAM policies for.

For google_bigtable_table_iam_member or google_bigtable_table_iam_binding:

  • member/members - (Required) Identities that will be granted the privilege in role. Each entry can have one of the following values:

    • allUsers: A special identifier that represents anyone who is on the internet; with or without a Google account.
    • allAuthenticatedUsers: A special identifier that represents anyone who is authenticated with a Google account or a service account.
    • user:[emailid]: An email address that represents a specific Google account. For example, alice@gmail.com or joe@example.com.
    • serviceAccount:[emailid]: An email address that represents a service account. For example, my-other-app@appspot.gserviceaccount.com.
    • group:[emailid]: An email address that represents a Google group. For example, admins@example.com.
    • domain:[domain]: A G Suite domain (primary, instead of alias) name that represents all the users of that domain. For example, google.com or example.com.
  • role - (Required) The role that should be applied. Only one google_bigtable_table_iam_binding can be used per role. Note that custom roles must be of the format [projects|organizations]/[parent-name]/roles/[role-name]. Read more about roles here.

google_bigtable_table_iam_policy only:

  • policy_data - (Required) The policy data generated by a google_iam_policy data source.

  • project - (Optional) The project in which the table belongs. If it is not provided, Terraform will use the provider default.

In addition to the arguments listed above, the following computed attributes are exported:

  • etag - (Computed) The etag of the tables's IAM policy.

Explanation in Terraform Registry

Three different resources help you manage IAM policies on bigtable tables. Each of these resources serves a different use case:

  • google_bigtable_table_iam_policy: Authoritative. Sets the IAM policy for the tables and replaces any existing policy already attached.
  • google_bigtable_table_iam_binding: Authoritative for a given role. Updates the IAM policy to grant a role to a list of members. Other roles within the IAM policy for the table are preserved.
  • google_bigtable_table_iam_member: Non-authoritative. Updates the IAM policy to grant a role to a new member. Other members for the role for the table are preserved.

    Note: google_bigtable_table_iam_policy cannot be used in conjunction with google_bigtable_table_iam_binding and google_bigtable_table_iam_member or they will fight over what your policy should be. In addition, be careful not to accidentally unset ownership of the table as google_bigtable_table_iam_policy replaces the entire policy.

    Note: google_bigtable_table_iam_binding resources can be used in conjunction with google_bigtable_table_iam_member resources only if they do not grant privilege to the same role.
