Switching to multi-part cloud-init, getting: SyntaxError: invalid syntax



  • I used to have

    user_data  = data.template_file.user_data.rendered
    

    I changed that to,

    user_data  = data.template_cloudinit_config.master.rendered
    

    And I added,

    data "template_cloudinit_config" "master" {
      gzip          = true
      base64_encode = true
    

    get common user_data

    part {
    filename = "cloud-init.cfg"
    content_type = "text/part-handler"
    content = data.template_file.user_data.rendered
    }
    }

    But now I'm getting this error, in my cloud-init.log

    However, nothing changed in that file. What's going on?



  • The problem here was I had

    content_type = "text/part-handler"
    

    I should have had,

    content_type = "text/cloud-config"
