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="'0.13.0-beta1'" --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="'0.13.0-beta1'" --prerelease

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.

0.13.0-beta1 (June 03, 2020)


  • count and for_each for modules: Similar to the arguments of the same name in resource and data blocks, these create multiple instances of a module from a single module block. (#24461)
  • depends_on for modules: Modules can now use the depends_on argument to ensure that all module resource changes will be applied after any changes to the depends_on targets have been applied. (#25005)
  • Automatic installation of third-party providers: Terraform now supports a decentralized namespace for providers, allowing for automatic installation of community providers from third-party namespaces in the public registry and from private registries. (More details will be added about this prior to release.)
  • Custom validation rules for input variables: A new validation block type inside variable blocks allows module authors to define validation rules at the public interface into a module, so that errors in the calling configuration can be reported in the caller's context rather than inside the implementation details of the module. (#25054)


  • As part of implementing a new decentralized namespace for providers, Terraform now requires an explicit source specification for any provider that is not in the "hashicorp" namespace in the main public registry. (More details will be added about this prior to release, including links to upgrade steps.) (#24477)
  • backend/oss: Changes to the TableStore schema now require a primary key named LockID of type String (#24149)
  • command/0.12upgrade: this command has been replaced with a deprecation notice directing users to install terraform v0.12 to run terraform 0.12upgrade. (#24403)
  • command/import: remove the deprecated -provider command line argument (#24090)
  • command/import: fixed a bug where the import command was not properly attaching the configured provider for a resource to be imported, making the -provider command line argument unnecessary. (#22862)
  • command/providers: the output of this command is now a flat list that does not display providers per module. (#24634)
  • config: Inside provisioner blocks that have when = destroy set, and inside any connection blocks that are used by such provisioner blocks, it is now an error to refer to any objects other than self, count, or each (#24083)
  • configs: At most one terraform.required_providers block is permitted per module (#24763)
  • The official MacOS builds of Terraform CLI are no longer compatible with Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite; Terraform now requires at least Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan. Terraform 0.13 is the last major release that will support 10.11 El Capitan, so if you are upgrading your OS we recommend upgrading to Mac OS 10.12 Sierra or later.
  • The official FreeBSD builds of Terraform CLI are no longer compatible with FreeBSD 10.x, which has reached end-of-life. Terraform now requires FreeBSD 11.2 or later.


  • The terraform plan and terraform apply command will now detect and report changes to root module outputs as able to be applied even if there are no resource changes in the plan. This will be an improvement in behavior for most users, since it will now be possible to change output blocks and use terraform apply to apply those changes, but it may require some changes to unusual situations where a root module output value was intentionally changing on every plan, which was not an intended usage pattern and is no longer supported.
  • Terraform CLI now supports TLS 1.3 and supports Ed25519 certificates when making outgoing connections to remote TLS servers. While both of these changes are backwards compatible in principle, certain legacy TLS server implementations can reportedly encounter problems when attempting to negotiate TLS 1.3. (These changes affects only requests made by Terraform CLI itself, such as to module registries or backends. Provider plugins have separate TLS implementations that will gain these features on a separate release schedule.)
  • On Unix systems where use-vc is set in resolv.conf, Terraform will now use TCP for DNS resolution. We don't expect this to cause any problem for most users, but if you find you are seeing DNS resolution failures after upgrading please verify that you can either reach your configured nameservers using TCP or that your resolver configuration does not include the use-vc directive.
  • backend/s3: Region validation now automatically supports the new af-south-1 (Africa (Cape Town)) region. For AWS operations to work in the new region, the region must be explicitly enabled as outlined in the AWS Documentation. When the region is not enabled, the Terraform S3 Backend will return errors during credential validation (e.g. error validating provider credentials: error calling sts:GetCallerIdentity: InvalidClientTokenId: The security token included in the request is invalid). (#24744)


  • config: templatefile function will now return a helpful error message if a given variable has an invalid name, rather than relying on a syntax error in the template parsing itself. (#24184)
  • config: The configuration language now uses Unicode 12.0 character tables for certain Unicode-version-sensitive operations on strings, such as the upper and lower functions. Those working with strings containing new characters introduced since Unicode 9.0 may see small differences in behavior as a result of these table updates.
  • cli: When installing providers from the Terraform Registry, Terraform will verify the trust signature for partner providers, and allow for self-signed community providers (#24617)
  • cli: Display detailed trust signature information when installing providers from the Terraform Registry, including a link to more documentation on different levels of signature (#24932)
  • cli: It is now possible to optionally specify explicitly which installation methods can be used for different providers, such as forcing a particular provider to be loaded from a particular directory on local disk instead of consulting its origin provider registry. (#24728)
  • cli: Add state replace-provider subcommand to allow changing the provider source for existing resources (#24523)
  • cli: The terraform plan and terraform apply commands now recognize changes to root module outputs as side-effects to be approved and applied. This means you can apply root module output changes using the normal plan and apply workflow. (#25047)
  • cli: The new terraform providers mirror subcommand can automatically construct or update a local filesystem mirror directory containing the providers required for the current configuration. (#25084)
  • config: The merge function now returns more precise type information, making it usable for values passed to for_each (#24032)
  • config: Add "sum" function, which takes a list or set of numbers and returns the sum of all elements (#24666)
  • config: added support for passing metadata from modules to providers using HCL (#22583)
  • core: Significant performance enhancements for graph operations, which will help with highly-connected graphs (#23811)
  • core: Data resources can now be evaluated during plan, allowing depends_on to work correctly, and allowing data sources to update immediately when their configuration changes. (#24904)
  • core: Data resource changes detected during planning will now always be reported in the plan output, to highlight a likely reason for effective configurationc changes elsewhere. Previously only data resources deferred to the apply phase would be shown. (#24904)
  • backend/azurerm: switching to use the Giovanni Storage SDK to communicate with Azure (#24669)
  • backend/remote: Now supports terraform state push -force. (#24696)
  • backend/remote: Can now accept -target options when creating a plan using remote operations, if supported by the target server. (Server-side support for this in Terraform Cloud and Terraform Enterprise will follow in forthcoming releases of each.) (#24834)
  • backend/s3: Support automatic region validation for af-south-1 (#24744)
  • backend/swift auth options match OpenStack provider auth (#23510)


  • backend/oss: Allow locking of multiple different state files (#24149)
  • cli: Fix terraform state mv to correctly set the resource each mode based on the target address (#24254)
  • cli: The terraform plan command (and the implied plan run by terraform apply with no arguments) will now print any warnings that were generated even if there are no changes to be made. (#24095)
  • cli: When using the TF_CLI_CONFIG_FILE environment variable to override where Terraform looks for CLI configuration, Terraform will now ignore the default CLI configuration directory as well as the default CLI configuration file. (#24728)
  • cli: The terraform login command in OAuth2 mode now implements the PKCE OAuth 2 extension more correctly. Previously it was not compliant with all of the details of the specification. (#24858)
  • command: Fix panic for nil credentials source, which can be caused by an unset HOME environment variable (#25110)
  • command/fmt: Include source snippets in errors (#24471)
  • command/format: Fix diagnostic output to show multi-line code snippets correctly (#24473)
  • command/show (json output): fix inconsistency in resource addresses between plan and prior state output (#24256)
  • core: Fix race in GetVariableValue (#24599)
  • core: Instances are now destroyed only using their stored state, removing many cycle errors (#24083)
  • core: Destroy provisioners should not evaluate for_each expressions (#24163)
  • funcs/jsonencode: Fix null value handling (#25078)
  • lang: Fix non-string key panics in map function (#24277)
  • lang: substr("abc", 0, 0) would previously return "abc", despite the length argument being 0. This has been changed to return an empty string when length is zero. (#24318)
  • lang: ceil(1/0) and floor(1/0) would previously return a large integer value, rather than infinity. This has been fixed. (#21463)
  • lang: Add support for OpenSSH RSA key format to rsadecrypt function (#25112)
  • provisioner/chef: Gracefully handle non-failure (RFC062) exit codes (#19155)
  • provisioner/habitat: Fix permissions on user.toml (#24321)
  • provider/terraform: The terraform_remote_state data source will no longer attempt to "configure" the selected backend during validation, which means backends will not try to perform remote actions such as verifying credentials during terraform validate. Local validation still applies in all cases, and the configuration step will still occur prior to actually reading the remote state in a normal plan/apply operation. (#24887)
  • vendor: Fix crash when processing malformed JSON (#24650)


  • This release concludes the variable_validation experiment that was started in Terraform v0.12.20. If you were participating in the experiment, you should remove the experiment opt-in from your configuration as part of upgrading to Terraform 0.13.

    The experiment received only feedback that can be addressed with backward-compatible future enhancements, so it's been accepted into this release as stable with no changes to its original design so far. We'll consider additional features related to custom validation in future releases after seeing how it's used in real-world modules.
