Running terraform scripts
Terraform is a great provisioning platform and allows you to specify variables that can be read from the environment or from file.
The easiest way to use
pk with terraform is to create an environment entry.
Create an environment with your AWS credentials.
TF_VAR_access_key=<Your aws creds key here> TF_VAR_secret_key=<Your aws creds secret here>
Remember that terraform reads its variables from the environment with
Now you can run your terraform using:
pk sh --safe mysafe --lbls terraform-env terraform plan
And you should see it running:
provider.aws.region The region where AWS operations will take place. Examples are us-east-1, us-west-2, etc. Default: us-east-1 Enter a value: Refreshing Terraform state in-memory prior to plan... The refreshed state will be used to calculate this plan, but will not be persisted to local or remote state storage.
You can also create a bash alias.
I normally put the following in my
alias tf-dev='pk sh -s mysafe -n terraform-env terraform'
Now everytime you need to run it just type:
tf-dev plan #or tf-dev apply
