Migrate from Terraform to OpenTofu in 1-Click with ControlMonkey

Ever since it was announced GA, OpenTofu has been progressively adopted by DevOps teams around the world to keep their IaC framework open-source.
Hashicorp’s Terraform license change and IBM’s recent acquisition have pushed more and more DevOps to migrate their stacks from Terraform to OpenTofu.

If you have come to the decision that OpenTofu is the right IaC framework for your team and you’re planning to migrate, then the release of our ‘OpenTofu 1-Click Migration’ solution is exactly for you.
ControlMonkey users who want to migrate their stacks to OpenTofu can now easily do it via the ControlMonkey platform in a few clicks.

How complicated is it to shift from Terraform to OpenTofu?

It’s pretty straightforward to migrate a couple of Terraform stacks to OpenTofu on your own.
But what if you have hundreds or thousands of stacks that you wish to migrate?

That’s where the real migration challenges come in.

When you have big-scale environments or a large terraform codebase, manually inspecting and preparing your code to be migration-compatible can be a long, daunting, and error-prone process.
So, if you have many Terraform Stacks, you can now seamlessly migrate them to OpenTofu using ControlMonkey.

Here is how we do it:

OpenTofu Readiness Assessment

As always the first step is visibility – Gain complete visibility into your code readiness with a clear assessment report and understand your migration gaps and dependencies.
See exactly which stacks are not ready to shift to OpenTofu, and whether your Terraform Stacks are OpenTofu compatible.

1-Click Migration to OpenTofu

Shift your IaC engine binary to OpenTofu with minimal effort. 
ControlMonkey provides a 1-click migration where we automatically change your Infrastructure CI/CD IaC framework to OpenTofu.

Fix Code Gaps and Dependencies

ControlMonkey scans your code to search for HashiCorp’s registry references in your Modules or providers definitions.
If your Terraform code was written with the fully qualified name of HashiCorp’s registry, ControlMonkey will automatically generate a PR that fixes the code pointing to the OpenTofu registry. 

Quick Wrap Up

Migrating from Terraform to OpenTofu is more of a management challenge than a technical one.
When you have large environments with many stacks, manually assessing and preparing thousands of lines of Terraform Code is counterproductive and error-prone.

With ControlMonkey, you get the automation that scans and assesses all of your Terraform Stacks, runs compatibility tests, and helps you seamlessly fix any gaps or dependencies in your code.
Don’t spend your DevOps team’s time preparing your stacks for migration.
We are providing the easiest and safest way to migrate from Terraform to OpenTofu.
