Code sample


To learn how to apply or remove a Terraform configuration, see Basic Terraform commands. For more information, see the Terraform provider reference documentation.

resource "google_sql_database_instance" "primary" {
  name             = "mysql-primary-instance-name"
  region           = "europe-west4"
  database_version = "MYSQL_8_0"
  settings {
    tier = "db-n1-standard-2"
    backup_configuration {
      enabled            = "true"
      binary_log_enabled = "true"
  # set `deletion_protection` to true, will ensure that one cannot accidentally delete this instance by
  # use of Terraform whereas `deletion_protection_enabled` flag protects this instance at the GCP level.
  deletion_protection = false
