Terraform Analyzer Updates - April 2021

Terraform Analyzer Updates

We’ve made several improvements and fixes to DeepSource’s Terraform Analyzer to help you do a better analysis of your Terraform code.

Here’s the detailed changelog:


  • Fixed a bug that was causing failures in reporting a few types of issues.
  • Fixed a bug that caused breakage in analysis in the presence of one or more erroneous .tf files – like a syntactical error in .tf file. No more breakages as those files are now skipped from the analysis.


  • Improved analysis start time.
  • Supports the latest parser for HCL2 (HCL Version 2). HCL2 is a combination of HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL) and HashiCorp Interpolation Language (HIL).
  • Reports fewer false positives. Existing rules perform a job better at detecting issues in your terraform code. Also, many more rules are coming soon.
