Deployment is hard. Enforcing policy on how the resources can be deployed is even harder. In this workshop, Dewan Ahmed (Aiven) and Peter ONeill (Styra) will leverage two popular open-source tools, Terraform and Open Policy Agent, to show you step-by-step how to enforce fine-grained control on large-scale deployments across environments for data-related services.
Breakdown of the workshop:
At the end of this workshop, you’ll have a fairly good understanding of both tools (Terraform and Open Policy Agent). You’ll be able to use a general-purpose policy engine to enforce policies on resource creation. Lastly, you will know these policies might apply across the stack in your own organization when dealing with large-scale deployment across development and production environments.
