Hashicorp decided to change its license model on all of its products on August 10th, 2023, which resulted in the creation of OpenTofu. The OpenTofu initiative is a rapidly evolving effort and we know many of you have questions about OpenTofu in general as well as how Scalr will interact with it. We will continue to update this doc with questions and answers as things evolve:
Please find all information about OpenTofu here.
Sure! You can execute a run in Scalr using the preview version (1.6.0-preview) or build it locally yourself.
All versions of Terraform between 0.14.x and 1.5.x are supported as they are under the MPL license. There is no legal risk at all to use these versions.
Please use OpenTofu for anything higher than 1.5.x.
The goal is to make OpenTofu compatible with Terraform until the community decides otherwise.
No, you can continue to use Terraform versions between 0.14.x and 1.5.x, and then OpenTofu for any higher versions.
Update: OpenTofu has been accepted in the Linux Foundation, which is an impartial foundation that ensures open source projects are adopted at scale.
The goal for the first release be by the end of September 2023.
Please find the OpenTofu repo here.
Scalr has no plans to license Terraform from HashiCorp as the proposed reseller model does not allow us to effectively build and maintain a product and business. Scalr does not intend to change its pricing model. Our packaging and pricing is set up for long-term success for our customers and us as a business. Our goal is to make sure you continue to operate on Terraform up until the point you choose to upgrade beyond Terraform 1.5.6 and have an easy path to leveraging OpenTofu without a financial or operational impact.
