Local backend configuration reference


    Lokomotive supports local backend for storing Terraform state.

    Backend configuration is OPTIONAL. If no backend configuration is provided then local backend is used.

    NOTE: lokoctl does not support multiple backends, configure only one.


    There are no prerequisites for using local backend.


    To use a backend, we need to define a configuration in the .lokocfg file.

    Example configuration file local_backend.lokocfg:

    backend "local" {
      path = "terraform.tfstate"

    Default backend is local.

    backend.local.path Location where Lokomotive stores the cluster state. - string false
