Command: state replace-provider
terraform state replace-provider command is used to replace the provider
for resources in a Terraform state.
terraform state replace-provider [options] FROM_PROVIDER_FQN TO_PROVIDER_FQN
This command will update all resources using the "from" provider, setting the provider to the specified "to" provider. This allows changing the source of a provider which currently has resources in state.
This command will output a backup copy of the state prior to saving any changes. The backup cannot be disabled. Due to the destructive nature of this command, backups are required.
This command also accepts the following options:
-auto-approve- Skip interactive approval.
-lock=false- Don't hold a state lock during the operation. This is dangerous if others might concurrently run commands against the same workspace.
-lock-timeout=0s- Duration to retry a state lock.
