Saving a generated plan is currently not supported

Hi all,

I just started getting the following error yesterday - it seems the Terraform backend no longer supports saving generated plans. This was working for the last month, can someone please advise if this is a bug? I can’t see anything in the plan or remote docs regarding this limitation…

Steps to reproduce:

$ terraform workspace new quicktest5

Created and switched to workspace "quicktest5"!

You're now on a new, empty workspace. Workspaces isolate their state,
so if you run "terraform plan" Terraform will not see any existing state
for this configuration.

$ terraform plan -out=plan -input=false

Error: Saving a generated plan is currently not supported

The "remote" backend does not support saving the generated execution plan
locally at this time.

$ # then run -> terraform apply -input=false plan

Can also getting this error. Can confirm this workflow was functional last two weeks back.

terraform workspace create new_env
terraform workspace select new_env
terraform init
terraform plan --out ./out.plan -var-file=.env

Error: Saving a generated plan is currently not supported!

The "remote" backend does not support saving the generated execution
plan locally at this time.

Never mind. I found it. A Recent update to Terraform Ent. now includes some additional settings. the setting `` needs to be set to local for workspaces created after the Ent. update.
