We've started using Hashicorp Terraform to manage provisioning in our VMware environment but we're having difficulty modifying the Notes for a VM. It seems we need to use the custom_configuration_parameters in the terraform plan but it's not clear what key we need to use. Anyone happen to know what the appropriate key is?


I found this to be a bit confusing, since Notes exists under Annotations, together with other custom attribues. But I found that just setting:

resource "vsphere_virtual_machine" "vm" {
  annotation = "Deploy via Terraform"

will give you the text in the Notes field.
