Upgrade Terraform 0.11 to 0.12

HashiCorp Terraform

Run the Terraform 0.12upgrade command

tfenv install 0.12.20
tfenv use 0.12.20
terraform 0.12upgrade
gfind <your top level TF directory> -name '*.tf' -printf "%h\n" \
| uniq \
| grep -v ".terraform" \
| xargs -n1 terraform 0.12upgrade -yes

What if I have to change it by hand?
