Terraform Cloud Config

When using Terraform Cloud, Terraspace performs additional convenience logic to make it easier to use Terraform Cloud Workspaces. Some of the processing behavior can be configured.

Terraform Cloud Variables Behavior

Whenever a terraspace up is ran, terraspace reads the config/terraform/tfc/vars.json file and uses it to create Terraform Cloud Variables.

Terraspace will overwrite TFC variables by default. The behavior is configurable. Non-sensitive and sensitive variables can be finely controlled with different overwrite behavior.


Terraspace.configure do |config|
  config.tfc.overwrite = true # non-sensitive variables
  config.tfc.overwrite_sensitive = true

Here’s a table with the cloud related config settings:


The table below covers each setting. Each option is configured in config/app.rb with config.OPTION. The config. portion is not shown for conciseness. IE: logger.level vs config.logger.level.

Name Description Default
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.show_message Normally, only “Creating” variable messages are shown. Can be set to: all, update, create, none create
