Configuration API & Terraform Provider Now Available
LogDNA is now Mezmo but the product you know and live is here to stay
We’re excited to announce that our Configuration API and Terraform Provider are now generally available for all Mezmo customers.
We received tremendous feedback from our public beta release and, based on that feedback, we are enabling several new features with the GA release that allow for more programmatic workflows with Mezmo.
First, we are enabling Preset Alerts as a new resource that can be configured with the configuration API as well as within Terraform. Users can now create, update, and delete individual Preset Alerts with the API as well as configure multiple Preset Alerts with Terraform. With the enablement of Preset Alerts through the API and Terraform, any View or Alert resource can now be programmatically configured.
Second, we have added in a GET endpoint for each of our existing resources—making it easier to query the current state of any accounts’ resources.
Third, we are enabling `terraform import` to help with migrating Mezmo accounts with existing resources. To learn more about how to make the most of `terraform import`, check out Terraform’s documentation.
Why Try the Configuration API and Terraform Provider?
With larger organizations that require multiple Mezmo instances or even many Views and Alerts to manage within a single Mezmo instance, manually configuring each resource can be painstaking and error prone.
With the Mezmo Configuration API and Terraform Provider, development teams can now codify their Mezmo instances and manipulate them as code. With the newest `terraform import`, you can start adding your existing LogDNA state into your Terraform state file.
Teams can also programmatically add in new Views and Alerts whenever a new issue occurs so they can be ready the next time the same situation occurs.
