The bug

Previously terraform steps would execute and any output from the terraform CLI would be included as part of the deployment. The only option to see what has actually happened during a deployment is to add the Octopus.Action.Terraform.AttachLogFile variable with a value of True to the project.

What I expected to happen

Expected output from the terraform cli to be included in the deployment output

Steps to reproduce

  1. Navigate to a new project and add a terraform step
  2. Add a new terraform step
provider "aws" {

variable "bucket" {
    description = "The bucket to create"

resource "aws_s3_bucket" "bucket" {
    bucket = "${var.bucket}"

output "id" {
	value = "${}"

output "arn" {
	value = "${aws_s3_bucket.bucket.arn}"

output "region" {
	value = "${aws_s3_bucket.bucket.region}"

  1. Add an AWS account and configure it for the terraform step
  2. Deploy and notice the output

Affected versions

Octopus Server: 2019.4.4-2019.5.2


Although no workaround exists to see the terraform output during the deployment, the Octopus.Action.Terraform.AttachLogFile variable can be added to the project which will provide all outputs from terraform.
