» terraform enterprise

Kind: Standard (with no locking)

Reads and writes state from a Terraform Enterprise workspace.

We no longer recommend using this backend, as it does not support collaboration features like workspace locking. Please use the new enhanced remote backend for storing state and running remote operations in Terraform Cloud.

» Example Configuration

terraform {
  backend "atlas" {
    name = "example_corp/networking-prod"
    address = "https://app.terraform.io" # optional

We recommend using a partial configuration and omitting the access token, which can be provided as an environment variable.

» Data Source Configuration

data "terraform_remote_state" "foo" {
  backend = "atlas"
  config = {
    name = "example_corp/networking-prod"

» Configuration variables

The following configuration options / environment variables are supported:

  • name - (Required) Full name of the workspace (<ORGANIZATION>/<WORKSPACE>).
  • ATLAS_TOKEN/ access_token - (Optional) A Terraform Enterprise user API token. We recommend using the ATLAS_TOKEN environment variable rather than setting access_token in the configuration. If not set, the token will be requested during a terraform init and saved locally.
  • address - (Optional) The URL of a Terraform Enterprise instance. Defaults to the SaaS version of Terraform Enterprise, at "https://app.terraform.io"; if you use a private install, provide its URL here.
