To upload a file to GitHub that contains content retrieved from Consul's key/value store using Terraform, you can follow these steps:

  1. Configure the GitHub provider: You need to authenticate to the GitHub provider by providing your personal access token or using SSH keys. You can use the github provider block to configure your GitHub account.
provider "github" {
  token = "<GITHUB_TOKEN>"
}
  1. Retrieve data from the Consul key/value store: You can use the data block to get the data from the Consul key/value store. You need to specify the Consul address, datacenter, and the key you want to retrieve.
data "consul_key_prefix" "config" {
  address = "127.0.0.1:8500"
  datacenter = "dc1"
  prefix = "my-app"
}

In this example, we are retrieving all the keys that start with my-app prefix.

  1. Create a local file: You need to create a local file that contains the content you retrieved from the Consul key/value store. You can use the local_file resource to create a local file.
resource "local_file" "config_file" {
  content = "${data.consul_key_prefix.config.*.value.join("\n")}"
  filename = "config.json"
}

In this example, we are creating a local file config.json with the content we retrieved from the Consul key/value store.

  1. Create a new repository file: Finally, you can create a new file in your GitHub repository by using the github_repository_file resource. You need to specify the repository name, file path, file content, and commit message.
resource "github_repository_file" "config_file" {
  repository = "my-repo"
  branch     = "main"
  path       = "config.json"
  content    = "${local_file.config_file.content}"
  message    = "Add config file"
}

In this example, we are creating a new file config.json in the main branch of the my-repo repository with the content of the local file we created earlier. The commit message is "Add config file".

That's it! With these steps, you can upload a file to GitHub that contains the content retrieved from Consul's key/value store.
