I am using the Azure provider and terraform state is stored in an Azure blob container.
terraform plan from local workstation, I noticed that the the
Modified time stamp of the Azure blob was getting updated even though the content of the Azure blob remained unchanged.
The examples below demonstrate how the
Modified value on Azure portal changes with every execution of
terraform plan command , while the Terraform source files remained unchanged. There was no
terraform apply invoked at all.
This is the console output from the
terraform plan command:
I was under the impression that
terraform apply is the command which is actually responsible for updating the remote storage state
Please help me understand the underlying behaviour ?
