About Terraform Artifacts in Atlas

Atlas can be used to store artifacts for use by Terraform. Typically, artifacts are stored with Packer.

Artifacts can be used in Atlas to deploy and manage images of configuration. Artifacts are generic, but can be of varying types like amazon.image. See the Packer artifact_type docs for more information.

Packer can create artifacts both while running in Atlas and out of Atlas' network. This is possible due to the post-processors use of the public artifact API to store the artifacts.
