Terraform 0.13/0.14 for Amazon EKS module

Hi everyone, does anyone know the ETA for updating the Amazon EKS module to support Terraform 0.13 and 0.14 as we are currently considering moving away and considering using eksctl as a n alternative for managing our K8s cluster. Thanks

What updates are you looking for? We are using Terraform 0.14 with EKS currently with no issues…

The Terraform github for the module has the following set:

terraform {
required_version = “>= 0.12.9, != 0.13.0”

Which module is this? The one we are using has no such limitations (terraform-aws-vpc/versions.tf at master · terraform-aws-modules/terraform-aws-vpc · GitHub).

You’d need to contact whoever maintains the module you are using (the are probably loads) or switch to a different module. If they are on GitHub raising an issue (or looking if there is already one you can subscribe to) would be a good next step.

Hi Stuart. Actually I saw that too…on https://registry.terraform.io/modules/terraform-aws-modules/eks/aws/latest in the section REQUIREMENTS there is :



Hi all,

I’m not familiar with this particular module, but I wanted to note that a version constraint like we see here typically represents that the author of the module found that a particular release of Terraform CLI had a bug which affected this module’s functionality in some way, but that this bug was fixed in subsequent releases.

Notice that the version constraint only excludes v0.13.0 exactly, and so Terraform CLI v0.13.6 (the latest v0.13 release at the time I’m writing this comment) would be compatible with this version constraint.

that’s what I thought but I wanted to double check.
so Jason you don’t need to migrate to eksctl. :slight_smile:
