Config Reference

Here’s a list of the available config settings.

Name Description Default
all.concurrency How many processes to run in parallel for each batch for the terraspace all commands. 5
all.exit_on_fail.down Whether or not to exit if one of the down commands fails. Note: Other commands like show, validate, etc are also configurable and default to false. For all down , TS_EXIT_ON_FAIL=0 will also tell Terraspace to continue on failures. true
all.exit_on_fail.plan Whether or not to exit if one of the plan commands fails. false
all.exit_on_fail.up Whether or not to exit if one of the up commands fails. true
all.include_stacks Stacks to include and consider for the dependency graph. nil
all.exclude_stacks Stacks to ignore and not to be considered as part of the dependency graph. nil
allow.envs Array of allowed envs to deploy to. IE: dev, prod, etc. By default, any env is allowed. nil
allow.regions Array of allowed regions to deploy to. IE: us-east-1, us-west-2, etc. By default, any region is allowed. nil
autodetect.expander The expander that Terraspace uses is determined by: 1) config.autodetect.expander - config setting that allows override of the auto-detection entirely. 2) parsing - will try to find the s3, azurerm, gcs backend and use the right terraspace plugin based on that. 3) Gemfile: check what plugins are loaded in the Gemfile and auto-detect based on that. If there’s more than one cloud provider plugin, terraspace will decide the plugin based on this precedence: aws, azurerm, google. You can override the auto-detection and explicitly set the plugin for the expander by setting this autodetect.expander option. nil
auto_create_backend Enable auto-creation of backend true
build.cache_dir The relative dir for the module or stack cache. This can be a string that will be used for substitution, IE: .terraspace-cache/us-west-2/dev/stacks/demo The option can also be Ruby object that responds to call or a class that has an instance method call. IE: or CustomCacheDir#call. The current stack/module is passed to the call method :CACHE_ROOT/:REGION/:ENV/:BUILD_DIR
build.cache_root The root of the cache build dir. IE: .terraspace-cache /full/path/to/.terraspace-cache
build.clean_cache Whether to clean the cache at the beginning of the build process. Can be useful to turn off if using TFC VCS-Driven workflow. true
build.pass_files List of strings are patterns use to tell Terraspace which files should use a pass build strategy. More docs: Pass Files []
bundle This should be a Hash. It configures terraspace bundle settings. Options are passed straight through, allowing you to configure anything with the bundle command. See terrafile config level options for the options. {logger: Terraspace.logger}
init.mode Can be: auto, never, always. auto means init will only be called when .terraform doesnt exist yet. You can also override this with a env var. IE: TS_INIT_MODE=always auto
layering.names Map layering names to friendly names. Currently only supports namespace. More docs: Layering Friendly Names {}
layering.enable_names.expansion Enable or disable friendly name mapping where expansion is used. This occurs for build.cache_dir and terraform backends. It can be useful to disable this if you’ve changed the default settings and want to keep original path and state file. More docs: Build Cache Dir true
log.root The root folder where logs are written to. log
logger Logger instance to use.$stderr)
logger.formatter Logger Formatter to use. See Formatter for interface. Terraspace::Logger::Formatter
logger.level Logger level info
summary.prune Prune old state files with no resources to speed up summary call over time. Note: This removes old state files, so it deletes some state history. false
terraform.plugin_cache.dir Sets TF_PLUGIN_CACHE_DIR. /tmp/terraspace/plugin_cache
terraform.plugin_cache.enabled Whether or not to enable a common cache folder to download plugins. false
terraform.plugin_cache.purge_on_error Whether or not to automatically purge the plugin_cache and retry when there are Terraform plugin cache errors like this. Recommend enabling. true
test_framework Test framework to use rspec
tfc.auto_sync Enables auto-syncing of config/cloud settings to TFC/TFE. Useful to disable if you do not have permission to manage workspaces. true
tfc.working_dir_prefix Add additional prefix to add the relative root that is set on TFC nil
tfc.hostname Hostname used for TFE Terraform token used for authenticated API calls. See: Terraform Login nil
tfc.vars.overwrite Whether or not to overwrite non-sensitive variables. true
tfc.vars.overwrite_sensitive Whether or not to overwrite sensitive variables. true
tfc.vars.show_message Normally, only “Creating” variable messages are shown. Can be set to: all, update, create, none create
tfc.workspace.attrs Custom workspace attributes to set as part of the sync to TFC. Can be useful for vcs-repo. See TFC API Workspace Docs {}
