This data source provides information about Transport Zones (TZ) configured in NSX. A Transport Zone defines the scope to which a network can extend in NSX. For example an overlay based Transport Zone is associated with both hypervisors and logical switches and defines which hypervisors will be able to serve the defined logical switch. Virtual machines on the hypervisor associated with a Transport Zone can be attached to logical switches in that same Transport Zone.

Example Usage

data "nsxt_transport_zone" "overlay_transport_zone" {
  display_name = "1-transportzone-87"

Argument Reference
