What permissions are required for the API token when configuring the Rancher2 Terraform Provider?

This document (000020140) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.



When configuring the Rancher2 Terraform Provider, what permissions are required for the API token configured to authenticate with Rancher (as in the below example)?

provider "rancher2" {
  api_url    = "https://rancher.my-domain.com"
  access_key = "${var.rancher2_access_key}"
  secret_key = "${var.rancher2_secret_key}"



The user account for which you generate the API token, to configure the Terraform provider, will need permissions granted on any resources that you intend to configure and manage via Terraform.
