Using Terraform Community Modules for GCP

An application team has developed a prototype of a containerized web application and need it deployed to Google Cloud for testing. After talking with the team about what the app needs to run, you have agreed that Cloud Run is the easiest way for them to get their container running. The team agreed to use Terraform to manage the cloud infrastructure, but they are on a tight timetable and do not have time to start from scratch. Using a community module found on the Terraform Registry, deploy the Cloud Run service. Once the service is deployed, update the Terraform code to output the service URL each time the Terraform configuration is applied. This way, the developers will not need to access the GCP console after each deployment, which will save them time.
