Terraform - Define hash using locals

Hashes (key value pairs) can be defined in a locals block. For example, let's say your .usr/local/terraform/locals.tf file has the following.

locals {
  hash = {
    foo = "Hello"
    bar = "World"


And let's say your /usr/local/terraform/outputs.tf file has the following.

output "my-hash" {
  value = local.hash


The terraform output command should return the following.

my-hash = {
  "foo" = "Hello"
  "bar" = "World"
