Powerpipe is now the recommended way to run dashboards and benchmarks! Mods still work as normal in Steampipe for now, but they are deprecated and will be removed in a future release:

The locals block defines and sets one or more local variables, using standard HCL assignment syntax. The locals are scoped to the mod, and a mod may contain multiple locals blocks. Locals may reference other values in the mod, including other local values.

You can reference local values as local.<NAME>

Example Usage

locals {
cis_version = "v1.4.0"
plugin_name = "aws"
locals {
cis_v140_common_tags = {
cis = "true"
cis_version = local.cis_version
plugin = local.plugin_name
benchmark "cis_v140" {
title = "CIS v1.4.0"
description = "The CIS Amazon Web Services Foundations Benchmark provides prescriptive guidance for configuring security options for a subset of Amazon Web Services with an emphasis on foundational, testable, and architecture agnostic settings."
documentation = file("./cis_v140/docs/cis_overview.md")
children = [
tags = local.cis_v140_common_tags
