Today, AWS announces support for Terraform within Amazon CodeCatalyst. This launch allows you to provision infrastructure using Terraform within a CodeCatalyst workflow. A workflow is an automated procedure that describes how to build, test, and deploy your code as part of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) system. A workflow defines a series of steps, or actions, to take during a workflow run. This launch allows you to add a Terraform action to your workflow, providing a way to create or update infrastructure as defined in a .tf file.

Until now, custom action scripting was required in order to utilize Terraform within a workflow. With the new action, there’s a clear and easy way to utilize Terraform for Infrastructure as Code within CodeCatalyst.

This feature is available in all Regions where CodeCatalyst is generally available. To learn more, check out the Terraform Community Action inside the actions catalog within your CodeCatalyst project.
