The HashiCorp Terraform AWS provider has surpassed more than one billion downloads, and every single Terraform apply starts with a provider credentials setup. The new dynamic provider credentials feature offers the ability to generate dynamic, short-lived credentials for Terraform Cloud runs using OIDC. This feature is now available for all Terraform Cloud tiers. Terraform Cloud is HashiCorp’s managed service offering and eliminates the heavy lifting for practitioners, teams, and organizations to use Terraform in production.
Bitbucket Pipelines, an integrated CI/CD tool within Bitbucket Cloud that enables developers to execute builds right from within Bitbucket, recently introduced an integration with OpenID Connect and AWS. OpenID Connect is an identity layer above the Oauth 2.0 protocol. With this integration, Bitbucket Pipelines users can authenticate with Amazon S3, Amazon CloudFront, and other AWS resources without having to store secret tokens in Bitbucket.
