Multiple counts in a resource

I have a resource like below, I want all my record variable has to be mapped to same subdomain name in the resource, since I have already used count for another purpose I am not able to use count, is there a way to use multiple counts or is there any other way that I can achive this.

variable “records”{
default =,,

variable “subdomain_name” {
default =

resource “aws_route53_record” “database” {
count = var.enable ? 1 : 0

zone_id = var.private_zone_id
name = var.subdomain_name
type = “CNAME”
ttl = “300”
records = [var.records]

If using Terraform 0.12.6+, I would recommend using a for_each expression to iterate over a list. However, since count and for_each are mutually exclusive - we will not be able to have both expressions in place at once.

I don’t have any domains registered on AWS, so I had to test this approach with Cloudflare.

variable "records" {
  default = ["terraform", "example", "third"]
  type = list

resource "cloudflare_record" "dns" {
  for_each = toset(var.records)

  zone_id = var.cloudflare_zone_id
  name    = "subdomain"
  value   = "${each.value}"
  type    = "CNAME"
  ttl     = 3600

On second glance at the aws_route53_record resource the records argument takes a list. You could convert your comma seperated string variable records, and pass records = var.records instead of wrapping it in a list.
