Bootstrapping using terraform in openstack - personality issues

 I am trying to automate a vm inside openstack in our Ocata environment using terraform.  But I am having issues using the personality when i am building the instance.   Using heat template the snippet of the code is as follows.


### Heat   ####

user_data_format: RAW
config_drive: true
/config/init-cfg.txt: {get_file: "/root/bootstrap/config/init-cfg.txt"}
/config/bootstrap.xml: {get_file: "/root/bootstrap/config/bootstrap.xml"}


But in terraform, i cannot find a similar way of setting the personality function.   So this is what I tried to use:


resource "openstack_compute_instance_v2" "pan81" {
# count = "${var.count}"
name = "pan01"
image_name = "PAN81"
flavor_name = "p1.large"
key_pair = "${var.openstack_keypair}"
security_groups = ["default"]
config_drive = "true"

metadata {
instance_test = "pan image"
network {
name = "terra-mgmt"

network {
name = "terra-north"
network {
port = "${}"
personality {
file = "init-cfg.txt"
contents = "/config/init-cfg.txt"

Terraform Error:

* openstack_compute_instance_v2.cirros: "personality.0.content": required field is not set
* openstack_compute_instance_v2.cirros: personality.0: invalid or unknown key: contents

Does anyone know how to properly configure the personality block inside the resource "openstack_compute_instance_v2"?
