The Infracost CLI uses a number of environment variables to customize various aspects of its behavior; these can be particularly useful in CI/CD integrations. Configuration values are chosen in this order:
- CLI flags (run
infracost --helpto see them)
- Environment variables
- Config file
Infracost API key, run
infracost register to get one.
The currency (ISO 4217) prices should be converted to. Defaults to USD.
This is only used by the
infracost breakdown and
diff commands. The
output command uses the currency from the Infracost JSON file.
Can be set to
true to enable the Infracost Dashboard, which provides an easy way of sharing reports
Controls the log verbosity level. Can be set to
warn in CI/CD systems to reduce noise, or
debug to troubleshoot. Turns off spinners in output.
true to skip the Infracost update check; can be useful in CI/CD systems. We regularly add support for new resources so we recommend watching our repo for releases: goto the repo page, click on the Watch button > select Custom > Releases and click on Apply. Be sure to upgrade regularly.
Used to set the Terraform workspace (this sets the
TF_WORKSPACE internally). The
--terraform-workspace flag can also be used.
INFRACOST_TERRAFORM_WORKSPACE=dev infracost breakdown --path /code
Only set this for multi-workspace deployments, otherwise it might result in the Terraform error "workspaces not supported". If you see this error, try running
unset INFRACOST_TERRAFORM_WORKSPACE and
For Terraform Cloud/Enterprise users, set this to a Team API Token or User API Token so Infracost can use it to access the plan.
For Terraform Enterprise users, used to override the default
app.terraform.io backend host.
If using multiple projects using a config_file this limits the number of projects processed in parallel. By default the parallelization level is set to 4×CPU count but capped at 16. To help with debugging set this to
1 so that the projects are processed synchronously.
Terraform environment variables
Standard Terraform environment variables such as
TF_VAR_ can also be added if required, for example:
TF_CLI_CONFIG_FILE="$HOME/.terraformrc-custom" infracost breakdown \
