This is a short note that v0.27.0 is deprecating Terraform drift functionality.

Late last year we introduced experimental support for Terraform Drift detection (See the blog post) and learned a lot from the community and the feedback you shared!

We’ve learned a couple of major things:

  • Terraform State to CloudQuery Schema mapping is a full time job :)
  • This kind of mapping is useful for more than just detecting drift but also for other use-cases such as security organizations are interested in ensuring that "IaC" definitions will be compliant when deployed without having to maintain multiple policy implementations.

Our first try wasn't perfect but it enabled us to understand the meta problem we want to solve which is data ingestion, and transformation of IaC framework to CloudQuery schema. We are going to give it another shot in future releases once CloudQuery gets to a more mature place as we want to focus more on stability and other framework improvements before we want to commit maintaining this kind of mapping for all resources.

This is a short note that v0.24.0 is deprecating migrations from cloudquery together with history.

Late last year we introduced experimental support of historical data with TimescaleDB (See the blog post). Giving it a try we learned that maintaining full migrations for every single table is impossible and also affects developer experience of both third-party providers, ours internally and contributors.

Today we are pleased to announce the release of CloudQuery SDK!

We released CloudQuery at the end of last year to give developers, SREs and security engineers a better and open-source alternative to gain deep visibility into their cloud infrastructure. We made a few decisions like using SQL as a query and policy engine so developers won’t need to learn yet another query or policy engine!

Bonus: Reuse and take advantage of the whole huge SQL ecosystem.

CloudQuery grew over 1.3K stars in under 5 months! This led us to develop a better and simpler way to extend CloudQuery with new resources and customs providers.
