» About Terraform Artifacts
Deprecation warning: The Packer, Artifact Registry and Terraform Enterprise (Legacy) features of Atlas will no longer be actively developed or maintained and will be fully decommissioned on Thursday, May 31, 2018. Please see our Upgrading From Terraform Enterprise (Legacy) guide to migrate to the new Terraform Enterprise and our guide on building immutable infrastructure with Packer on CI/CD for ideas on implementing the Packer and Artifact features yourself.
Terraform Enterprise can be used to store artifacts for use by Terraform. Typically, artifacts are stored with Packer.
Artifacts can be used in to deploy and manage images
of configuration. Artifacts are generic, but can be of varying types
amazon.image. See the Packer
docs for more information.
Packer can create artifacts both while running in and out of Terraform Enterprise network. This is possible due to the post-processors use of the public artifact API to store the artifacts.
