It was mentioned on one of the packer webcasts that chaining builds may be a future feature for packer leveraging the hcl syntax. I have a use case that would need to chain vmware-iso with two runs of vmware-vmx for a complex build. Can we reuse the terraform “depends_on” functionality with packer builders?
I clearly can script this outside of packer but I’m curious what the thinking is for doing it within the hcl2 syntax. Has the approach been solidified?
