A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Terraform documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
Terraform includes some commands for reading and updating state without taking any other actions.
terraform state listcommand shows the resource addresses for every resource Terraform knows about in a configuration, optionally filtered by partial resource address.
terraform state showcommand displays detailed state data about one resource.
terraform refreshcommand updates state data to match the real-world condition of the managed resources. This is done automatically during plans and applies, but not when interacting with state directly.
