Create An Output of Azure Storage Account Name With Terraform

In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of creating an output for your Azure storage account using Terraform, making it easier to access and use your storage resources.


To create an output for an Azure storage account name using Terraform, you can use the “output” block in your Terraform configuration file. Here is an example:

resource "azurerm_storage_account" "example" {
name = "examplestorageaccount"
resource_group_name =
location = azurerm_resource_group.example.location
account_tier = "Standard"
account_replication_type = "LRS"
output "storage_account_name" {
value =

In this example, the azurerm_storage_account resource is being created with the name “examplestorageaccount”.

The output block is then used to create an output variable named “storage_account_name” and assigns the value of the name property of the azurerm_storage_account resource as the value for the output.

You can then use the output value in other parts of your configuration or retrieve it after Terraform is applied using the terraform output command.

Success! You're on the list.
