What is Terraform variable?

Variable provides a way to dynamically assign a value to an attribute in terraform code. Using variable, you can modularize your code for reuse. Instead of assigning values directly to the attributes you can define a variable and refer it in your code. In the future, if you want any modification to your infrastructure or apply any change, you can simply edit the variable block or file.
