Add a Terraform System

A system is Styra’s core unit for policy authoring, validation, and distribution. To begin enforcing policies over Terraform, you will first create a new Terraform system.

  1. Click the plus sign (+) next to the SYSTEMS section in the left navigation panel.

  2. Select a system-type from the list of available types.

    For this tutorial, select Terraform system-type.

  3. In the Add System › Terraform dialog, fill the following profile information:

    • System name (required): Name your new Terraform system.

    • Description: (Optional) Enter a description.

    • Leave the Read-only switch ON to prevent other users from editing policy for this system using the policy control plane console.

    • Leave the Launch Quick Start switch on. After this system is added, the Quick Start sidebar will guide you through configuring the system.

  4. Click the Add system button.

Now, a Terraform system is created in the left navigation panel under the SYSTEMS section.
