Terraform provider/variable sharing in modules

Right now it’s not possible to achieve that.
There were previous discussions on github about the same topic in the following issues:

  • https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/5480
  • https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/4585
  • https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/2714
  • https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/1742
  • https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform/issues/1478

the sharing of variables between modules is against terraform core clarity/explicity principles.

A workaround is to have the *shared* files in the parent directory and using symlinks to add them to the modules.
