We started with this https://github.com/terraform-google-modules/terraform-example-foundation and it’s a very good starting point and a great structure to follow. Good overall documentation and example.

🤔 , ok , thanks for the answer 😉
have you looked at the fabric / fast ? it seems more flexible , but then , more complicated also 😉

no
and yes seems more complicated and lot of modules under the hood… I’m not a huge fan of terraform modules.

thanks for your feeback 😉
any idea of the time it took to “rewrite” the example repo for your needs ?

existing one
probably starting from a folder inside the existing one

I would say to adapt to an existing organization it’ll be more complicated. Like network peering, organization policy etc… But I don’t have a clear idea of all the work needed to adapt to an existing organization

ok, and a new one then ?

Really more easier because you adapt as you go.
I would say couple of hours to have something terraformed from your machine

Go for the fabric it is better and easier to customize, do also follow the checklist along, provided by google.
