terraform

Description

Resolves a Terraform stack and either applies it automatically (if autoApply: true) or warns when the stack resources are not up-to-date.

Note: It is not recommended to set autoApply to true for any production or shared environments, since this may result in accidental or conflicting changes to the stack. Instead, it is recommended to manually plan and apply using the provided plugin commands. Run garden plugins terraform for details.

Stack outputs are made available as service outputs, that can be referenced by other modules under ${runtime.services.<module-name>.outputs.<key>}. You can template in those values as e.g. command arguments or environment variables for other services.

Note that you can also declare a Terraform root in the terraform provider configuration by setting the initRoot parameter. This may be preferable if you need the outputs of the Terraform stack to be available to other provider configurations, e.g. if you spin up an environment with the Terraform provider, and then use outputs from that to configure another provider or other modules via ${providers.terraform.outputs.<key>} template strings.

See the Terraform guide for a high-level introduction to the terraform provider.

Below is the full schema reference. For an introduction to configuring Garden modules, please look at our Configuration guide.

The first section contains the complete YAML schema, and the second section describes each schema key.

terraform modules also export values that are available in template strings. See the Outputs section below for details.

Set this to true to disable the module. You can use this with conditional template strings to disable modules based on, for example, the current environment or other variables (e.g. disabled: \${environment.name == "prod"}). This can be handy when you only need certain modules for specific environments, e.g. only for development.

Disabling a module means that any services, tasks and tests contained in it will not be deployed or run. It also means that the module is not built unless it is declared as a build dependency by another enabled module (in which case building this module is necessary for the dependant to be built).

If you disable the module, and its services, tasks or tests are referenced as runtime dependencies, Garden will automatically ignore those dependency declarations.
