I know it might be out of scope but need your inputs on this.

how to add dynamic scope to existing maintenance configuration.

I have created maintenance configuration using terraform. here is the code for maintenance configuration:

provider "azurerm" {
  features {}
}
terraform {
  required_providers {
    azapi = {
      source  = "Azure/azapi"
      version = "=0.4.0"
    }
  }
}
resource "azurerm_resource_group" "example" {
  name     = "example-resources"
  location = "West Europe"
}
# resource "azurerm_maintenance_configuration" "example" {
#   name                = "example-mc"
#   resource_group_name = azurerm_resource_group.example.name
#   location            = azurerm_resource_group.example.location
#   scope               = "InGuestPatch"
#   tags = {
#     Env = "prod"
#   }
  
# }
resource "azapi_resource" "vm_maintenance" {
  type      = "Microsoft.Maintenance/maintenanceConfigurations@2021-09-01-preview"
  name      = "vm-mc"
  parent_id = "/subscriptions/XXXX/resourceGroups/example-resources"
  location  = azurerm_resource_group.example.location
  body = jsonencode({
    properties = {
      visibility          = "Custom"
      namespace           = "Microsoft.Maintenance"
      maintenanceScope    = "InGuestPatch"
      extensionProperties = {
        "InGuestPatchMode" = "User"
      }
      maintenanceWindow = {
        startDateTime      = formatdate("YYYY-MM-DD 17:30", timestamp())
        expirationDateTime = null
        duration           = "PT3H30M"
        timeZone           = "Eastern Standard Time"
        recurEvery         = "120Hour"
      }
      installPatches = {
        linuxParameters = {
          classificationsToInclude  = ["Critical", "Security", "Other"]
          packageNameMasksToExclude = null
          packageNameMasksToInclude = null
        }
        windowsParameters = {
          classificationsToInclude = ["Critical", "Security" , "UpdateRollup", "FeaturePack" , "ServicePack", "Definition" ,"Tools", "Updates"  ]
          kbNumbersToExclude       = null
          kbNumbersToInclude       = null 
        }
        rebootSetting = "RebootIfRequired"
      }
    }
  })
}
resource "azapi_resource" "vm_maintenance_assignment" {
  type      = "Microsoft.Maintenance/configurationAssignments@2021-09-01-preview"
  name      = "vm--mca"
  parent_id = "/subscriptions/XXX/resourceGroups/example-resources/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/test1"
  location  = "East US 2"
  body = jsonencode({
    properties = {
      maintenanceConfigurationId = azapi_resource.vm_maintenance.id
    }
  })
}


and I am trying to follow to add a dynamic scope to above mainteance configuration but where to begin and how to provide input values

    Hi,

    The answer to this question is no different than the one for this one Error: Bicep deployment of maintenance configuration + dynamic scope for Update Manager just the language differs but when using AzAPI the properties part is the same or similar. Most important is that dynamic scope is basically Microsoft.Maintenance/configurationAssignments resource but deployed at subscription scope. Direct assignments are the same resource but they are scoped to the VM/Arc server where dynamic scope is a resource that is deployed at subscription scope. When at that scope it has different properties:

    • maintenanceConfigurationId - the value is the resource ID of the maintenance configuration.
    • resourceId - the value is the subscription resource ID where the dynamic scope is deployed.
    • filter - The value is if you want to provide any filter to your dynamic scope like specific locations, OS types, resource groups, resource types or tags.
