tomap Function

tomap converts its argument to a map value.

Explicit type conversions are rarely necessary in OpenTofu because it will convert types automatically where required. Use the explicit type conversion functions only to normalize types returned in module outputs.


> tomap({"a" = 1, "b" = 2})
  "a" = 1
  "b" = 2

Since OpenTofu's concept of a map requires all of the elements to be of the same type, mixed-typed elements will be converted to the most general type:

> tomap({"a" = "foo", "b" = true})
  "a" = "foo"
  "b" = "true"
