1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade terraform -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade terraform -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions.

The key features of Terraform are:

  • Infrastructure as Code: Infrastructure is described using a high-level configuration syntax. This allows a blueprint of your datacenter to be versioned and treated as you would any other code. Additionally, infrastructure can be shared and re-used.
  • Execution Plans: Terraform has a "planning" step where it generates an execution plan. The execution plan shows what Terraform will do when you call apply. This lets you avoid any surprises when Terraform manipulates infrastructure.
  • Resource Graph: Terraform builds a graph of all your resources, and parallelizes the creation and modification of any non-dependent resources. Because of this, Terraform builds infrastructure as efficiently as possible, and operators get insight into dependencies in their infrastructure.
  • Change Automation: Complex changesets can be applied to your infrastructure with minimal human interaction. With the previously mentioned execution plan and resource graph, you know exactly what Terraform will change and in what order, avoiding many possible human errors.

For more information, see the introduction section of the Terraform website.

0.10.0 (August 2, 2017)

This is the complete 0.9.11 to 0.10.0 CHANGELOG


  • A new flag -auto-approve has been added to terraform apply. This flag controls whether an interactive approval is applied before making the changes in the plan. For now this flag defaults to true to preserve previous behavior, but this will become the new default in a future version. We suggest that anyone running terraform apply in wrapper scripts or automation refer to the upgrade guide to learn how to prepare such wrapper scripts for the later breaking change.
  • The validate command now checks that all variables are specified by default. The validation will fail by default if that's not the case. (#13872)
  • terraform state rm now requires at least one argument. Previously, calling it with no arguments would remove all resources from state, which is consistent with the other terraform state commands but unlikely enough that we considered it better to be inconsistent here to reduce the risk of accidentally destroying the state.
  • Terraform providers are no longer distributed as part of the main Terraform distribution. Instead, they are installed automatically as part of running terraform init. It is therefore now mandatory to run terraform init before any other operations that use provider plugins, to ensure that the required plugins are installed and properly initialized.
  • The terraform env family of commands have been renamed to terraform workspace, in response to feedback that the previous naming was confusing due to collisions with other concepts of the same name. The commands still work the same as they did before, and the env subcommand is still supported as an alias for backward compatibility. The env subcommand will be removed altogether in a future release, so it's recommended to update any automation or wrapper scripts that use these commands.
  • The terraform init subcommand no longer takes a SOURCE argument to copy to the current directory. The behavior has been changed to match that of plan and apply, so that a configuration can be provided as an argument on the commandline while initializing the current directory. If a module needs to be copied into the current directory before initialization, it will have to be done manually.
  • The -target option available on several Terraform subcommands has changed behavior and now matches potentially more resources. In particular, given an option, resources in any descendent modules of foo will also be targeted, where before this was not true. After upgrading, be sure to look carefully at the set of changes proposed by terraform plan when using -target to ensure that the target is being interpreted as expected. Note that the -target argument is offered for exceptional circumstances only and is not intended for routine use.
  • The import command requires that imported resources be specified in the configuration file. Previously, users were encouraged to import a resource and then write the configuration block for it. This creates the risk that users could import a resource and subsequently create no configuration for it, which results in Terraform deleting the resource. If the imported resource is not present in the configuration file, the import command will fail.


  • Separate Provider Releases: Providers are now released independently from Terraform.
  • Automatic Provider Installation: The required providers will be automatically installed during terraform init.
  • Provider Constraints: Provider are now versioned, and version constraints may be declared in the configuration.


  • Providers now maintain their own CHANGELOGs in their respective repositories: terraform-providers


  • cli: Add a -from-module flag to terraform init to re-introduce the legacy terraform init behavior of fetching a module. (#15666)
  • backend/s3: Add workspace_key_prefix to allow a user-configurable prefix for workspaces in the S3 Backend. (#15370)
  • cli: terraform apply now has an option -auto-approve=false that produces an interactive prompt to approve the generated plan. This will become the default workflow in a future Terraform version. (#7251)
  • cli: terraform workspace show command prints the current workspace name in a way that's more convenient for processing in wrapper scripts. (#15157)
  • cli: terraform state rm will now generate an error if no arguments are passed, whereas before it treated it as an open resource address selecting all resources (#15283)
  • cli: Files in the config directory ending in .auto.tfvars are now loaded automatically (in lexicographical order) in addition to the single terraform.tfvars file that auto-loaded previously. (#13306)
  • Providers no longer in the main Terraform distribution; installed automatically by init instead (#15208)
  • cli: terraform env command renamed to terraform workspace (#14952)
  • cli: terraform init command now has -upgrade option to download the latest versions (within specified constraints) of modules and provider plugins.
  • cli: The -target option to various Terraform operation can now target resources in descendent modules. (#15314)
  • cli: Minor updates to terraform plan output: use standard resource address syntax, more visually-distinct -/+ actions, and more (#15362)
  • config: New interpolation function contains, to find if a given string exists in a list of strings. (#15322)


  • provisioner/chef: fix panic (#15617)
  • Don't show a message about the path to the state file if the state is remote (#15435)
  • Fix crash when terraform graph is run with no configuration (#15588)
  • Handle correctly the .exe suffix on locally-compiled provider plugins on Windows systems. (#15587)
  • config: Fixed a parsing issue in the interpolation language HIL that was causing misinterpretation of literal strings ending with escaped backslashes (#15415)
  • core: the S3 Backend was failing to remove the state file checksums from DynamoDB when deleting a workspace (#15383)
  • core: Improved reslience against crashes for a certain kind of inconsistency in the representation of list values in state. (#15390)
  • core: Display correct to and from backends in copy message when migrating to new remote state (#15318)
  • core: Fix a regression from 0.9.6 that was causing the tally of resources to create to be double-counted sometimes in the plan output (#15344)
  • cli: the state rm and mv commands were always loading a state from a Backend, and ignoring the -state flag (#15388)
  • cli: certain prompts in terraform init were respecting -input=false but not the TF_INPUT environment variable (#15391)
  • state: Further work, building on #15423, to improve the internal design of the state managers to make this code more maintainable and reduce the risk of regressions; this may lead to slight changes to the number of times Terraform writes to remote state and how the serial is implemented with respect to those writes, which does not affect outward functionality but is worth noting if you log or inspect state updates for debugging purposes.
  • config: Interpolation function cidrhost was not correctly calcluating host addresses under IPv6 CIDR prefixes (#15321)
  • provisioner/chef: Prevent a panic while trying to read the connection info (#15271)
  • provisioner/file: Refactor the provisioner validation function to prevent false positives (#15273)


  • helper/schema: Actively disallow reserved field names in schema (#15522)
  • helper/schema: Force field names to be alphanum lowercase + underscores (#15562)
