Review your Terraform file for AWS best practices

Shisho Cloud, our free checker to make sure your Terraform configuration follows best practices, is available (beta).


Explanation in Terraform Registry

Manages an AWS Storage Gateway cached iSCSI volume.

NOTE: The gateway must have cache added (e.g., via the aws_storagegateway_cache resource) before creating volumes otherwise the Storage Gateway API will return an error. NOTE: The gateway must have an upload buffer added (e.g., via the aws_storagegateway_upload_buffer resource) before the volume is operational to clients, however the Storage Gateway API will allow volume creation without error in that case and return volume status as UPLOAD BUFFER NOT CONFIGURED.

Tips: Best Practices for The Other AWS Amazon S3 Resources

In addition to the aws_s3_bucket_public_access_block, AWS Amazon S3 has the other resources that should be configured for security reasons. Please check some examples of those resources and precautions.



Ensure S3 bucket-level Public Access Block restricts public bucket policies

It is better to enable S3 bucket-level Public Access Block if you don't need public buckets.



Ensure S3 bucket access policy is well configured

It is better to configure the S3 bucket access policy properly to limit it unless explicitly required.

Review your AWS Amazon S3 settings

In addition to the above, there are other security points you should be aware of making sure that your .tf files are protected in Shisho Cloud.
