Terraform Amazon Aurora

Authors: David Wright ( and Tony Vattahil (

To deploy the Terraform Amazon Aurora module, do the following:

  1. Install Terraform. For instructions and a video tutorial, see Install Terraform.

  2. Sign up and log into Terraform Cloud. (There is a free tier available.)

  3. Configure Terraform Cloud API access. Run the following to generate a Terraform Cloud token from the command line interface:

terraform login

--For Mac/Linux
export TERRAFORM_CONFIG="$HOME/.terraform.d/credentials.tfrc.json"

--For Windows
export TERRAFORM_CONFIG="$HOME/AppData/Roaming/terraform.d/credentials.tfrc.json"
  1. Configure the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). For more information, see Configuring the AWS CLI.

  2. If you don't have git installed, install git.

  3. Clone this aws-ia/terraform-aws-rds-aurora repository using the following command:

    git clone

  4. Change directory to the root repository directory.

    cd terraform-aws-rds-aurora/

  5. For setting up a new terraform workspace:

    • cd setup_workspace
    • terraform init
    • terraform apply
  6. To create new VPC and deploy Aurora module:

    • Change to the deploy directory. Run cd ../deploy
    • Initialize the deploy directory. Run terraform init.
    • Start a Terraform run using the configuration files in your deploy directory. Run terraform apply or terraform apply -var-file="$HOME/.aws/terraform.tfvars" (Note: The deployment is remotely run in Terraform Cloud)

    For existing VPCs, pass the list of private subnets (var.Private_subnet_ids_p & var.Private_subnet_ids_s) directly to the Aurora module.
