At HashiConf 2018, we announced the exciting new updates to Terraform 0.12.
With over a dozen new improvements in Terraform 0.12, we’d like to focus on 2 key updates and their use cases: What are the new HCL enhancements and what is Remote Plan & Apply?
HashiCorp software engineer Kristin Laemmert and solutions engineer Arslan Saeed will dive deeper than previous videos into Terraform HCL use cases, and also into a real world demo of Remote Plan & Apply.
What you'll learn
- Why HCL works well for infrastructure as code
- HCL enhancements overview
- Remote Plan & Apply use cases
- Addressing organizational challenges scaling from Terraform open source to Enterprise
- Demo of Remote Plan & Apply
HCL enhancements provide a more robust, feature-rich language to simplify the process of writing, analyzing, and processing Terraform configurations.
Remote Plan & Apply
Remote Plan & Apply allows the Terraform command to be back-ended and executed by Terraform Enterprise remotely, while still being run in a CI environment or on a developer’s laptop. This keeps secrets secure while preserving your core workflow and abiding by policies or restrictions with infrastructure access.
