» Usage

Usage: terraform state pull

This command will download the state from its current location, upgrade the local copy to the latest state file version that is compatible with locally-installed Terraform, and output the raw format to stdout.

This is useful for reading values out of state (potentially pairing this command with something like jq). It is also useful if you need to make manual modifications to state.
