Connecting multiple identities to Pulumi

Posted on

Hot on the heels of our GitLab sign-in support, we’ve just released support for multiple identities for a single Pulumi account in the Pulumi Service. Previously, you could only sign-up for a new Pulumi account using a GitHub or GitLab identity. Starting today, you can connect your Pulumi account with additional identities, beyond what you first signed-up with.

For example, if you signed-in to Pulumi with your GitHub account, you could only add GitHub organizations to the Pulumi Service, or collaborate with other GitHub users. With multiple identities, you can now also connect your Pulumi account to a GitLab identity too!

To connect an identity, first sign-in as usual on, then go to your Profile page as shown below.


Based on the example, on the Profile page, you would see a new button to connect a GitLab account. Conversely, if you signed-up originally using your GitLab account onto Pulumi, then you would see a button to connect your GitHub account.


Connecting multiple identities to Pulumi has advantages:

  • You can then add your GitHub organizations or GitLab groups, to collaborate with the respective members of those organizations using Pulumi.
  • A single Pulumi account connected to additional identities allows for more ways to sign into the Pulumi Service.

However, you don’t have to associate multiple identities with the same Pulumi account. Whenever you sign-in with a new identity for the first time on, a new Pulumi account is created. You can then choose to add additional identities at a later time.
