A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Terraform documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
»Command Line Arguments
When your configuration includes a
cloud block, commands that
make local modifications to Terraform state and then push them back up to the remote workspace
accept the following option to modify that behavior:
-ignore-remote-version- Override checking that the local and remote Terraform versions agree, making an operation proceed even when there is a mismatch.
State-modification operations usually require using a local version of the Terraform CLI that is compatible with the Terraform version selected in the remote workspace settings. This prevents the local operation from creating a new state snapshot that the workspace's remote execution environment cannot decode.
We recommend against using this option unless absolutely necessary. Overriding this check can result in a Terraform Cloud workspace that is no longer able to complete remote operations with the currently selected version of Terraform.
