Terraform workspaces (Mar 2017, previously known as State Environments ) allows to have multiple state files in the same working directory to manage multiple distinct sets of infrastructure resources.

Certain backends support multiple named workspaces allowing multiple states to be associated with a single configuration.

Usage scenarios[edit]

  • To create a parallel, distinct copy of a set of infrastructure in order to test a set of changes before modifying the main production infrastructure.
  • Non-default workspaces are often related to feature branches in version control.
