This module installs and configures tfenv tool which manages terraform version

Module Description

The tfenv module sets up from the github repo tfenv utility which manages terraform version. Module creates user and group jenkins by default. This behavior can be changed.


What tfenv affects

By default:

  • Clone and install tfenv into /opt/tfenv folder;
  • Create user jenkins and group jenkins

Beginning with tfenv

include '::tfenv'


All options and configuration can be done through interacting with the parameters on the main ::tfenv class. The default parameters are defined in ::tfenv::params

tfenv class

To start using tfenv one can use simple inclusion:

include '::tfenv'

If you don't need to create user you should define this explicitly, but please ensure that both user tfenv_user and group tfenv_group exists, otherwise puppet run will fail:

class { '::tfenv':
  manage_user  => false,
  manage_group => false,
  tfenv_user   => root,
  tfenv_group  => root,

You can also provide custom installation directory as well as tfenv version:

class { '::tfenv':
  install_dir    => '/home/jenkins/tfenv',
  tfenv_revision => 'v0.5.1',


If you want to install several versions of terraform you can use tfenv::terraform, e.g. install terraform versions '0.9.8', '0.9.9', '0.10.0':

include ::tfenv

$terraform_versions = ['0.9.8', '0.9.9', '0.10.0']

::tfenv::terraform { $terraform_versions: }



  • tfenv - Main class for installation and configuration.
  • tfenv::params - Different configuration data for module.

Defined resource

  • tfenv::terraform - install required version of terraform using tfenv tool


Tested and work on:

  • CentOS 7
  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Debian Jessie
