405 Error when spinning up Terraform Prismacloud producer

L1 Bithead


We're getting a 405 Error "405 not allowed" when running "terraform apply" to invoke a Terraform prismacloud producer.  Anyone seen this?  This is most likely a simple Terraform syntax error.




1) "terraform init", "fmt", and "validate" all return without error

2) vpn disabled, but still no success

3) main.tf references a separate Prisma authentication json file



    provider "prismacloud" {
        json_config_file = ".prismacloud_auth.json"


    .prismacloud_auth.json file


        "url": "app3.prismacloud.io",
        "username": "xxxx-user-id",
        "password": "yyyy-user-secret",
        "protocol": "https"



4) This curl command returns valid html from Prisma, with no error

curl -u xxxx-user-id:yyyy-user-secret https://app3.prismacloud.io


5) terraform.log snippet in TRACE mode shows:

This is the section for Prisma Access the Firewall as a Service solution not the Prisma Cloud. Better post this under the correct section.

Thanks so much for the quick response.  I'll do that.
