Well, I’ve almost gotten Terraform around the block once. Let’s see if I can get this bird to take off. A command I have completely overlooked is terraform import which would allow me to syncrhonize the actual state of Terraform against the state of the AWS account. It looks likes you can import individual resources or the whole account. I’m going to venture a guess and say it’s probably a really bad idea to import that state of an entire account, if for no other reason than it will take forever.

AWS KMS Aliases

So I ran into a problem where a key alias already existsed. I searched high, I searched lowed. I even searched the EC2 console. Turns out the only way to view teh AWS KMS aliases is to go through the CLI aws kms list-aliases. Fun times.
