Consul-Terraform-Sync (CTS) Enterprise is available with Consul Enterprise and requires a Consul license to be applied.
Enterprise features of CTS address organization complexities of collaboration, operations, scale, and governance. CTS Enterprise supports an official integration with Terraform Cloud and Terraform Enterprise, the self-hosted distribution, to extend insight into dynamic updates of your network infrastructure.

Consul Admin Partition Support
CTS subscribes to a Consul agent. Depending on the admin partition the Consul agent is a part of and the services within the admin partition, CTS will be able to subscribe to those services and support the automation workflow. As such, admin partitions are not relevant to the CTS workflow. We recommend deploying a single CTS instance that subscribes to services/KV within a single partition and using a different CTS instance (or instances) to subscribe to services/KV in another partition.
