One more issue from the Terraform error list that I want to share with y’all. While I was struggling with GCP on a day-to-day basis, I tried to initialize the remote TF state file stored in a GCS bucket and received the following console output:
Error: Failed to get existing workspaces: querying Cloud Storage failed: storage: bucket doesn't exist
- GCP account
- The Terraform state bucket must be created in advance. Verify it from the GCP Console or simply list all the buckets located in a specific project from the CLI:
gcloud alpha storage ls --project=<some_project_name>
- If the bucket is there, make sure you are authenticated against the correct project.
gcloud auth application-default login --project <some_project_name>
- Last but not least, run:
terraform init -reconfigure
Tried everything and nothing works? Let me know. On a side note, follow our official channel on Telegram.
