Create, update, or remove a property configuration.

Pass the minimum arguments required in the declaration to create a property with a default set of rules. The defaults provide basic services and protections that you can either activate or edit.

To use the defaults:

  • Add a CP code and an origin hostname to the rules.
  • An edge hostname argument in an update to your property using this resource.
  • Activate your property.

To remove a configuration, run terraform destroy.
