CI/CD integrations

Infracost CI/CD integrations can be used to automatically add a pull request comment showing the diff of monthly costs between the current and planned state. Minor cost increase/decrease changes can be ignored by setting a percentage threshold for the comment to be added.

Infracost can be used in any CI/CD system using our binary or Docker image. You might also find our CI diff script useful; it's used in the following integrations.

If you're upgrading your integrations from an older version to v0.8, please see the migration guide.

CI/CD troubleshooting#

Please try the following steps and if that doesn't help, create an issue or join our community Slack channel to chat with us.

  1. Set the INFRACOST_LOG_LEVEL environment variable to debug in case that provides more useful details. For Atlantis, also set atlantis_debug=true.
  2. Check the Terraform version that Infracost is using matches the version you need. Use the INFRACOST_TERRAFORM_BINARY environment variable to change that.
  3. Use ls -lah in the CI build to check for any .terraform* files/folders that might be confusing Terraform running in CI vs previous runs that were used to create them. Removing those files might help.
  4. Check the Terraform Cloud/Enterprise or Terragrunt docs pages if applicable.

My CI/CD isn't supported#

Please create an issue; we'll try to prioritize it depending on the community feedback. There are already requests for Jenkins, BuildKite and Azure DevOps. Please 👍 them if you'd like us to work on them sooner. You can also join our community Slack channel if you like to work on an integration, the existing integrations can act as a blueprint.

Please email if you'd like to discuss integrations with GitHub Enterprise, GitLab Enterprise Edition, or Bitbucket Data Center.
