Are you talking of a Terraform CLI workspace? Or is this TFE/TFC?

If you’ve created one workspace in TFC, you do the same to create more.


You can programatically create workspaces with the API endpoint as well… https://www.terraform.io/docs/cloud/api/workspaces.html#create-a-workspace

Your question is pretty vague - if you can expand on exactly what you’re trying to do, might be able to help.

You’ll want to populate a list and then have TF iterate thru it with for_each

Here’s a random example of for_each
