Today we're pleased to announce HashiCorp Terraform Cloud and HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise support for Azure DevOps Services. This support includes the ability to link your Terraform Cloud and Enterprise workspaces to Azure DevOps-backed VCS repositories, and an upcoming open-source Azure Marketplace task for invoking Terraform operations. Included in this release is VCS-backed integration with workspaces and modules.
It’s always been our position that the best way to provision infrastructure is to store your infrastructure as code (IaC) configuration files in a VCS repository and use Terraform to create resources based on them. This process typically has three steps:
Write infrastructure as code
Manage configuration files in VCS
Automate infrastructure provisioning
Assuming you’re already familiar with creating Terraform configurations, we’ll focus on step 2. In this blog, we’ll discuss the following topics:
How to set up your Azure DevOps Repos
Where you can find the Terraform task on the Azure Marketplace
How to learn more at Microsoft Ignite
Setting up your Azure DevOps Repos is as simple as configuring any other VCS repository type in Terraform Cloud. This newly supported repository type is available from within the Settings > VCS Providers view, simply by clicking Add VCS Provider and following a few simple instructions.
For complete details on how to add your repositories, you can reference our documentation -- but for a simple overview, the steps are below.
You’re now ready to configure your Terraform Workspaces and Private Module Registry to take advantage of your new Azure DevOps connection. This will allow you to store your Terraform configurations and modules in your repositories -- and get you one step closer to automated infrastructure provisioning.
In this video, you’ll walk through the process of configuring Azure DevOps Repos from end to end and do some example provisioning actions
HashiCorp is a sponsor at Microsoft Ignite, happening Nov. 4-8, 2019 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. We will be located at booth #2013 on the expo floor. Experts will be available to answer questions about the Azure DevOps and Terraform integrations listed above, as well as any other product questions that you may have. For those attending the conference, there are a number of sessions happening throughout the week that explore using HashiCorp tools on Azure. Select the following links to learn more information about each session:
Hopefully by now you’ve got a better understanding of how Azure DevOps and HashiCorp Terraform can combine to support your DevOps workflow.

To learn more about Terraform visit the HashiCorp Learn platform and see it in action.
Infrastructure producers and consumers require very different capabilities from their automation tools. Vendors need to provide a flexible infrastructure as code solution that meets users at their different levels of expertise.
Recent Terraform Enterprise releases include powerful new features such as projects, native OPA support, dynamic provider credentials, and drift detection.
