Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade terraform -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.12.0-alpha1'" --prerelease [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade terraform -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'0.12.0-alpha1'" --prerelease
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions.

The key features of Terraform are:

  • Infrastructure as Code: Infrastructure is described using a high-level configuration syntax. This allows a blueprint of your datacenter to be versioned and treated as you would any other code. Additionally, infrastructure can be shared and re-used.
  • Execution Plans: Terraform has a "planning" step where it generates an execution plan. The execution plan shows what Terraform will do when you call apply. This lets you avoid any surprises when Terraform manipulates infrastructure.
  • Resource Graph: Terraform builds a graph of all your resources, and parallelizes the creation and modification of any non-dependent resources. Because of this, Terraform builds infrastructure as efficiently as possible, and operators get insight into dependencies in their infrastructure.
  • Change Automation: Complex changesets can be applied to your infrastructure with minimal human interaction. With the previously mentioned execution plan and resource graph, you know exactly what Terraform will change and in what order, avoiding many possible human errors.

For more information, see the introduction section of the Terraform website.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

0.12.0-alpha1 (October 19, 2018)

The goal of this release is to give users an early preview of the new language features, and to collect feedback primarily about bugs and usability issues related to the language itself, while the Terraform team addresses the remaining problems. There will be at least one beta and at least one release candidate before final, which should give a more complete impression of how the final v0.12.0 release will behave.

INCOMPATIBILITIES AND NOTES:

The following list contains the most important incompatibillities and notes relative to v0.11.8, but may be incomplete. This alpha release is offered for experimentation purposes only and should not be used to manage real infrastructure. A more complete upgrade guide will be prepared in time for the final v0.12.0 release.

  • This release includes a revamped implementation of the configuration language that aims to address a wide array of feedback and known issues with the configuration language handling in prior versions. In order to resolve some ambiguities in the language, the new parser is stricter in some ways about following what was previously just idiomatic usage, and so some unusual constructs will need to be adjusted to be accepted by the new parser.
    The v0.12.0 final release will include a more complete language upgrade guide and a tool that can recognize and automatically upgrade common patterns for the new parser and new idiomatic forms.
  • This release introduces new wire protocols for provider and provisioner plugins and a new automatic installation method for provider plugins. At the time of release there are no official plugin releases compatible with these new protocols and so automatic provider installation with terraform init is not functional. Instead, the v0.12.0-alpha1 distribution archives contain bundled experimental provider builds for use with the alpha.
  • This release introduces new file formats for persisted Terraform state (both on local disk and in remote backends) and for saved plan files. Third-party tools that attempt to parse these files will need to be updated to work with the formats generated by v0.12 releases. Prior to v0.12.0 we will add a new command to obtain a JSON representation of a saved plan intended for outside consumption, but this command is not yet present in v0.12.0-alpha1.
  • terraform validate now has a smaller scope than before, focusing only on configuration syntax and value type checking. This makes it safe to run e.g. on save in a text editor.

NEW FEATURES:

The overall theme for the v0.12 release is configuration language fixes and improvements. The fixes and improvements are too numerous to list out exhaustively, but the list below covers some highlights:

  • First-class expressions: Prior to v0.12, expressions could be used only via string interpolation, like "${var.foo}". Expressions are now fully integrated into the language, allowing them to be used directly as argument values, like ami = var.ami.
  • for expressions: This new expression construct allows the construction of a list or map by transforming and filtering elements from another list or map. For more information, refer to the for expressions documentation.
  • Dynamic configuration blocks: For nested configuration blocks accepted as part of a resource configuration, it is now possible to dynamically generate zero or more blocks corresponding to items in a list or map using the special new dynamic block construct. This is the official replacement for the common (but buggy) unofficial workaround of treating a block type name as if it were an attribute expecting a list of maps value, which worked occasionally before as a result of some unintended coincidences in the implementation.
  • Generalised "splat" operator: The aws_instance.foo.*.id syntax was previously a special case only for resources with count set. It is now an operator within the expression language that can be applied to any list value. There is also an optional new splat variant that allows both index and attribute access operations on each item in the list. For more information, refer to the Splat Expressions documentation.
  • Nullable argument values: It is now possible to use a conditional expression like var.foo != "" ? var.foo : null to conditionally leave an argument value unset, whereas before Terraform required the configuration author to provide a specific default value in this case. Assigning null to an argument is equivalent to omitting that argument entirely.
  • Rich types in module inputs variables and output values: Terraform v0.7 added support for returning flat lists and maps of strings, but this is now generalized to allow returning arbitrary nested data structures with mixed types. Module authors can specify a precise expected type for each input variable to allow early validation of caller values.
  • Resource and module object values: An entire resource or module can now be treated as an object value within expressions, including passing them through input variables and output values to other modules, using an attribute-less reference syntax, like aws_instance.foo.
  • Extended template syntax: The simple interpolation syntax from prior versions is extended to become a simple template language, with support for conditional interpolations and repeated interpolations through iteration. For more information, see the String Templates documentation.
  • jsondecode and csvdecode interpolation functions: Due to the richer type system in the new configuration language implementation, we can now offer functions for decoding serialization formats. jsondecode is the opposite of jsonencode, while csvdecode provides a way to load in lists of maps from a compact tabular representation.
  • New Function: fileexists [GH-19086]

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • terraform validate now accepts an argument -json which produces machine-readable output. Please refer to the documentation for this command for details on the format and some caveats that consumers must consider when using this interface. [GH-17539]
  • The JSON-based variant of the Terraform language now has a more tightly-specified and reliable mapping to the native syntax variant. In prior versions, certain Terraform configuration features did not function as expected or were not usable via the JSON-based forms. For more information, see the JSON Configuration Syntax documentation.

BUG FIXES:

  • The conditional operator ... ? ... : ... now works with result values of any type and only returns evaluation errors for the chosen result expression, as those familiar with this operator in other languages might expect.

KNOWN ISSUES:

Since v0.12.0-alpha1 is an experimental build, this list is certainly incomplete. Please let us know via GitHub issues if you run into a problem not covered here!

  • As noted above, the alpha1 release is bundled with its own special builds of a subset of providers because there are not yet any official upstream releases of providers that are compatible with the new v0.12 provider plugin protocol. Automatic installation of providers with terraform init is therefore not functional at the time of release of alpha1.
    Provider developers may wish to try building their plugins against the v0.12-alpha1 tag of Terraform Core to use them with this build. We cannot yet promise that all providers will be buildable in this way and that they will work flawlessly after building. Official releases of all HashiCorp-hosted providers compatible with v0.12 will follow at some point before v0.12.0 final.
  • For providers that have required configuration arguments that can be set using environment variables, such as AWS_REGION in the aws provider, the detection of these environment variables is currently happening too "late" and so Terraform will prompt for these to be entered interactively or generate incorrect error messages saying that they are not set. To work around this, set these arguments inline within the configuration block. In most cases this does not apply to arguments related to API credentials, since most providers declare these ones as optional and then handle the environment variables directly in their own code. The environment variable defaults will be restored before final release.
  • There are several error messages in Terraform Core that claim that a problem is caused by a bug in the provider and ask for an issue to be filed against that provider's repository. For this alpha release, we ask that users disregard this advice and report such problems instead within the Terraform Core repository, since they are more likely to be problems with the new protocol version bridge code that is included in the plugin SDK.
  • Some secondary Terraform CLI subcommands are not yet updated for this release and will return errors or produce partial results. Please focus most testing and experimentation with this release on the core workflow commands terraform init, terraform validate, terraform plan, terraform apply, and terraform destroy.

In addition to the high-level known issues above, please refer also to the GitHub issues for this alpha release. This list will be updated with new reports throughout the alpha1 period, including workarounds where possible to allow for continued testing. (Issues shown in that list as closed indicate that the problem has been fixed for a future release; it is probably still present in the alpha1 release.)
