Helm Provider for Terraform Actions Status GitHub tag (latest SemVer) license Go Report Card

Terraform logo

This is the Helm provider for Terraform.

The provider manages the installed Charts in your Kubernetes cluster, in the same way Helm does, through Terraform.



  • Terraform v0.12.x
  • Go v1.16.x (to build the provider plugin)
  • Helm v3.x.x to deploy your charts

Getting Started

This is a small example of how to install the nginx ingress controller chart. Please read the documentation for more information.

provider "helm" {
  kubernetes {
    config_path = "~/.kube/config"

resource helm_release nginx_ingress {
  name       = "nginx-ingress-controller"

  repository = ""
  chart      = "nginx-ingress-controller"

  set {
    name  = "service.type"
    value = "ClusterIP"
