    Aiven Terraform provider

    Teams have been deprecated and are being migrated to groups

    Groups were released in September 2023 to provide a more efficient and centralized way of managing user groups. The deprecation will happen in phases to make the transition to groups as easy and seamless as possible:

    Account Owners will transition to super admin

    On 30 September 2024 the Account Owners team will be removed. Super admin have full access to organizations. The Account Owners and super admin are synced, so the removal of the Account Owners team will have no impact on existing permissions.

    Teams will become read-only

    From 4 November 2024 you won’t be able to create new teams or update existing ones. To simplify the move, we’ll also migrate your existing teams to groups.

    Teams will be removed

    On 2 December 2024 all teams will be deleted and the teams feature will be completely removed.

    For more information about groups read the release announcement for groups, the teams documentation and Terraform migration guide.
