This is derived from a GitHub issue for the IBM Cloud terraform provider. The request there is to make it possible to change the machine type of the worker nodes of a Kubernetes cluster.
It is not possible to change the machine type via terraform without destroying the Kubernetes cluster. A new API has to be added for this to be then exposed via terraform as far as I understood.
