Overview

Soft plan docs for using Terraform LocalStack for local testing of infrastructure-as-code.

  • [i] The goal here is to minimize the time on feedback loop for particularly hard-to-test, yet critical pieces of cloud infrastructure. The length of the current AFT feedback loop makes it a particular pain in the ass to test quickly & repeatedly, so something like this would be a huge boon
  • [i] This isn’t the first time something of the same flavor has come up — we looked previously at a stack for locally validating Account Factory Terraform code, but the fact that this setup is literally measured in epics gave us the impression that this wouldn’t be a quick integration and we tabled it awhile back.

Deliverables

  • [-] Ability to locally test Account Factory Terraform on LocalStack
