I try to lean terraform for usage with our AWS environment. I have created a .tf file and terraform init was successful.
In the .tf file I have a number of variables that are populated via .var files (not .tfvar) because I want to assign values per instance/project etc.
The problem is that when I run the command
terraform plan -var-file="myvars.var"
all I get is the terraform usage message.
Where is my mistake?
