The new ServiceNow Service Catalog for Terraform version 2.4 allows you to customize workspace names and add tags to your Terraform workspaces.
We are excited to announce the latest version of the ServiceNow Service Catalog integration for HashiCorp Terraform, version 2.4. This latest iteration introduces custom workspace naming and tagging, which gives teams the ability to be compliant based on organizational naming conventions. Additionally, version 2.4 introduces a new feature that enables the addition of Terraform Cloud tags during the workspace creation process.
This post covers version 2.4’s new features, including:
Previously, workspace names were automatically named using ServiceNow RITM ticket numbers. These non-descriptive names created confusion and a lack of clarity.
Now users can customize workspace names and adhere to their organization’s naming conventions, while preserving a link to the ServiceNow ticket.This provides the flexibility of adding a more descriptive name, which is prepended to the RITM ticket number upon ordering a particular Catalog Item.
Version 2.4 of the ServiceNow Service Catalog for Terraform enables workspace tagging. You can put multiple tags in a comma-separated list and the Service Catalog's backend script will parse them into separate tags and attach them to the workspace in Terraform Cloud. Some default Catalog items let users update both the name and the tags on a previously created workspace.
Not only do tags provide contextual awareness, but they also help admins organize, find, and filter workspaces more effectively in the Terraform Cloud or Enterprise interface, thus reducing the amount of time spent on repetitive manual tasks.
The general availability of the latest version of ServiceNow Service Catalog for Terraform Cloud and Terraform Enterprise lets users effectively name and tag workspaces. That brings two main benefits:
Custom workspace naming and tagging are available today as generally available features. With these updates, the ServiceNow Terraform Catalog becomes even more useful to organizations with many ServiceNow-provisioned workspaces, helping to streamline processes and promote broader adoption.
