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

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 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="'0.12.14'" [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="'0.12.14'" 

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

Exit $exitCode

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).

0.12.14 (November 13, 2019)


  • Terraform v0.12.0 included several changes to the Terraform language involving making expressions, type constraints, keywords, and references first-class in the language syntax, removing the need for placing thee items either in quoted strings or in interpolation syntax. Terraform v0.11 required these items to be quoted because the underlying language could not represent them any other way, while Terraform v0.12 expects them to be unquoted in order to improve readability.

    We have been accepting both forms for backward-compatibility with existing configurations and examples since the inititial v0.12.0 release. Having maintained compatibility for both forms for several versions we are now beginning the deprecation cycle for the old usage by having Terraform emit deprecation warnings.

    Terraform will still accept the older forms in spite of these warnings, so no immediate action is required. If your modules are targeting Terraform v0.12.0 and later exclusively, you can silence the warnings by removing the quotes, as directed in the warning message. In a future major version of Terraform, some of these warnings will be elevated to be errors.

    The summary of the warning for these situations will be one of the following:

    • Interpolation-only expressions are deprecated: an expression like "${foo}" should be rewritten as just foo.
    • Quoted type constraints are deprecated: In a variable block, a type constraint "map" should be written as map(string), "list" as list(string), and "string" as just string.
    • Quoted keywords are deprecated: In certain contexts that expect special keywords, such as when in provisioner blocks, the keyword should be unquoted.
    • Quoted references are deprecated: In the depends_on and ignore_changes meta-arguments, quoted references like "" should be rewritten without the quotes, e.g. as

    The above changes are made automatically by the upgrade tool for users who are upgrading from Terraform 0.11. These warnings are intended to help those who are using Terraform for the first time at Terraform 0.12 but who may have found examples online that are written for older versions of Terraform, in order to guide towards the modern Terraform style.

  • The terraform output command would formerly treat no outputs at all as an error, exiting with a non-zero status. Since it's expected for some root modules to have no outputs, the command now returns with success status zero in this situation, but still returns the error on stderr as a compromise to provide an explanation for why nothing is being shown.


  • config: Redundant interpolation syntax for attribute values and legacy (0.11-style) variable type constrants will now emit deprecation warnings. (#23348)
  • config: Keywords and references in depends_on, ignore_changes, and in provisioner when and on_failure will now emit deprecation warnings. (#23329)
  • command/output: Now treats no defined outputs as a success case rather than an error case, returning exit status zero instead of non-zero. (#23008] [#21136)
  • backend/artifactory: Will now honor the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables when appropriate, to allow sending requests to the Artifactory endpoints via a proxy. (#18629)


  • backend/remote: Filter environment variables when loading context for remote backend (#23283)
  • command/plan: Previously certain changes to lists would cause the list diff in the plan output to miss items. Now terraform plan will show those items as expected. (#22695)
  • command/show: When showing a saved plan file not in JSON mode, use the same presentation as terraform plan itself would've used. (#23292)
  • command/force-unlock: Return an explicit error when the local-filesystem lock implementation receives the wrong lock id. Previously it was possible to see either an incorrect error or no error at all in that case. (#23336)
  • core: Store absolute instance dependencies in state to allow for proper destroy ordering (#23252)
  • core: Ensure tainted status is maintained when a destroy operation fails (#23304)
  • config: transpose function will no longer panic when it should produce an empty map as its result. (#23321)
  • cli: When running Terraform as a sub-process of itself, we will no longer produce errant prefixes on the console output. While we don't generally recommend using Terraform recursively like this, it was behaving in this strange way due to an implementation detail of how Terraform captures "panic" crashes from the Go runtime, and that subsystem is now updated to avoid that strange behavior. (#23281)
  • provisioners: Sanitize output to filter invalid utf8 sequences (#23302)
