» Command: providers

The terraform providers command prints information about the providers used in the current configuration.

Provider dependencies are created in several different ways:

  • Explicit use of a provider block in configuration, optionally including a version constraint.

  • Use of any resource belonging to a particular provider in a resource or data block in configuration.

  • Existence of any resource instance belonging to a particular provider in the current state. For example, if a particular resource is removed from configuration, it continues to create a dependency on its provider until its instances have been destroyed.

This command gives an overview of all of the current dependencies, as an aid to understanding why a particular provider is needed.
