Terraform Configuration

In the following Terraform configuration I am creating a single Azure Active Directory group called Terraform admins.

terraform {
required_providers {
azuread = {
source = "hashicorp/azuread"
version = "1.0.0"

provider "azuread" {
# Configuration options
resource "azuread_group" "terraformadmins"{
name = "Terrafrom Admins"
description = "An Azure AD Group for Terraform administrators"
prevent_duplicate_names = true
