Define Your Infrastructure With IaC Using Zeet’s Terraform Provider

Control is more important than ever in cloud computing. Whether you need to know what’s going on and what changed in your cloud, or you want to make changes to your infrastructure in a way that’s directed and informed, you need the right tools.

A PaaS tool or platform can be great for deploying and even managing infrastructure, but only in the context of what’s possible on the platform. DIY, on the other hand, can be great for getting the full control and collaboration that tools like git offer, but what if you want both? What if you want easy deployment and operation, and the benefits and control of a pure IaC solution?

Introducing the Zeet Terraform Provider

Zeet just released a Terraform Provider, meaning you can control all your cloud Projects in Zeet using Terraform. If you’ve already got a fleshed out Terraform-powered Infrastructure stack, simply add the Zeet provider to the bottom of your Terraform and you’re done. No need to change workflows or juggle repositories—your Zeet Projects can now be defined and controlled from the same Terraform Module as all the rest of your Terraform Infrastructure.

In short, you can make tweaks to your infrastructure, collaborate with your team, and get native-change tracking with Terraform code in your VCS.  All this can easily be deployed and controlled with a suite of Zeet operate features like Revisions, native logging and metrics, alerting and notifications, autoscaling, and more across your clouds and clusters using Zeet’s UI, API, or CLI.

Infrastructure-as-Code, Git, and Zeet

To access this feature, simply connect your git, point to your Terraform Module, and click deploy.

You can get a full breakdown of the feature and how to use it here:

If you want to dive right in and add Zeet to your Terraform module, you can add the below code to your Terraform, or you can visit the Terraform Registry to view a full breakdown and configure it to your liking.

terraform {
  required_providers {
    zeet = {
      source  = "zeet-dev/zeet"
      version = "~> 1.0.0"

provider "zeet" {
  # Configuration options

  # You can also use the environment variable ZEET_API_URL to set the API URL
  api_url = ""

  # You can also use the environment variable ZEET_TOKEN to set the API key
  token = "zeet-api-key"

variable "team_id" {
  type = string

variable "cluster_id" {
  type = string

resource "zeet_group" "group" {
  team_id = var.team_id
  name    = "my-group"

resource "zeet_group_subgroup" "subgroup" {
  team_id  = var.team_id
  group_id =
  name     = "my-subgroup"

data "zeet_blueprint" "service_container" {
  slug = "zeet-kubernetes-container-app"

resource "zeet_project" "container" {
  team_id     = var.team_id
  group_id    =
  subgroup_id =

  name         = "my-container"
  blueprint_id =
  enabled      = false // draft mode

  container = {
    source = {
      container_registry = jsonencode({
        repository = "",
        tag        = "latest"
    workflow = {
      deploy_timeout_seconds = 300
    kubernetes = jsonencode({
      deployTarget = {
        deployTarget = "KUBERNETES"
        clusterID    = var.cluster_id
      namespace = var.team_id
      app = {
        deployService = true
        ports = [
            port     = "80"
            protocol = "tcp"
            public   = true
            https    = true

output "project_id" {
  description = "value of the project_id used in apiv1"
  value       =

output "repo_id" {
  description = "value of the repo_id used in apiv0"
  value       = zeet_project.container.container.repo_id
