How to List All Users in Terraform Cloud

Terraform has a rich API. However, the API documentation does not mention how to list all users. We can leverage the organization membership API and the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod to get a user list.

1. Create an organization token in Terraform Cloud.

2. Create the token variable ($Token) in PowerShell.

$Token = "abcde"

3. Create the API parameters variable in PowerShell.

$params = @{
Uri = "https://app.terraform.io/api/v2/organizations/ZHENGWU/organization-memberships?page%5Bsize%5D=100" 
Authentication = "Bearer"
Token = $Token
ContentType = "application/vnd.api+json"
}

Note: You need to replace ZHENGWU with your own organization name. And I used 100 at the end of the URI to retrieve the first 100 users. It can be any number. 

4. Retrieve the API return and list the user's email address.


$Test = Invoke-RestMethod @params
$Test.data.attributes.email

Connect-NsxtServer shows "Unable to connect to the remote server"

When you run Connect-NsxtServer in the PowerCLI, it may show "Unable to connect to the remote server".  Because the error message is a little bit confusing with other login issues. It's not easy to troubleshoot. The actual reason is the NSX-T uses a self-signed certificate, and the PowerCLI cannot accept the certificate automatically. The fix is super easy. You need to set the PowerCLI to ignore the invalid certificate with the following command: Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -Scope User -InvalidCertificateAction:Ignore -Confirm:$false

Setup Terraform and Ansible for Windows provisionon CentOS

Provisioning Windows machines with Terraform is easy. Configuring Windows machines with Ansible is also not complex. However, it's a little bit challenging to combine them. The following steps are some ideas about handling a Windows machine from provisioning to post configuration without modifying the winrm configuration on the guest operating system.
