Workspaces

Using Terraform workspaces to define environments.

Env Command
Dev terraform workspace select default
Test terraform workspace select test
Stage terraform workspace select stage
Prod terraform workspace select prod

Each Terraform configuration has an associated backend that defines how Terraform executes operations and where Terraform stores persistent data, like state.

The persistent data stored in the backend belongs to a workspace. The backend initially has only one workspace containing one Terraform state associated with that configuration. Some backends support multiple named workspaces, allowing multiple states to be associated with a single configuration. The configuration still has only one backend, but you can deploy multiple distinct instances of that configuration without configuring a new backend or changing authentication credentials.
