Types of Terraform Variables
Terraform variables are a flexible and centralized way to define and save values, independent of any particular Terraform execution plan. If admins provide no values, default values can define variables in the plan. Teams can specify and override the default values through the command line.
Terraform variables fall into two categories depending on how they are used in a resource plan that an engineer wishes to execute.
- Input variables. Define input variables with a variable keyword, followed by a name and then, in braces, a description, default value, and type. There are different types of input variables: string, list, map and boolean.
