Infrastructure Pipelines with Terraform Cloud
Mar 30, 2020
Watch this demo on how to create infrastructure pipelines in Terraform Cloud with Run Triggers.
- Jon SchulmanSr. Product Manager - Terraform
There have always been differences in how an application pipeline and an infrastructure pipeline are expected to behave. HashiCorp Terraform provides a simple way to define and manage infrastructure as code as part of a broader application pipeline, or via automated processes. We’ve recently released the Run Triggers: a feature that makes way for Terraform Cloud to create full-fledged infrastructure pipelines.
The new Run Triggers in Terraform Cloud offer a simple, programmable way to link workspaces together. They are useful anywhere you’d like to have distinct infrastructure automatically queue a run when another dependent piece of infrastructure is changed. This can help with:
- Enabling cross-team collaboration — Think of the way a database and web team might work together when changing infrastructure.
- Security purposes — Where a central security team needs to make changes across many resource types.
- Alignment with the application pipeline — Breaking down your Terraform Cloud workspaces to be smaller, more reusable components of a larger application delivery story.
Watch this webinar to learn more about why and how you should use the Run Triggers to create infrastructure Pipelines. HashiCorp Product Manager Jon Schulman will walk through an introduction of Infrastructure Pipelines and provide a demo.
