Automation: Continuous Integration
You can run Terraspace in continuous integration setup or automated pipeline with tools like Jenkins, Cody (AWS CodeBuild), etc with some flags. Here’s an example:
terraspace plan demo --auto --out a.plan terraspace up demo --auto --plan a.plan
What does the –auto flag do?
--auto flag tells Terraspace to run an automated and unattended manner.
- Terraspace sets the
TF_IN_AUTOMATION=1env variable, which makes some minor adjustments to Terraform output to de-emphasize specific commands to run as covered by Running Terraform in Automation.
- In the plan stage, Terraspace sets
-input=falseto when calling
terraform planto disable any prompts that may occur.
- In the up stage, terraspace sets
-auto-approveand skip the
Consistent plan file
We also use the
--out a.plan option to write the plan to a file. By using the file in the
terraspace up command later, it ensures a consistent plan is applied in an automated setting.
