Automating Pulumi Import with Manually Created Resources

Automating Pulumi Import with Manually Created Resources

A few weeks ago, I was speaking with a consultant at one of the big firms who asked me how he could introduce Pulumi into a client’s organization when that client had created many infrastructure resources manually through the AWS console and was running production workloads on those resources. Introducing modern cloud infrastructure tooling and automation is relatively simple (or at least more straightforward) when organizations decide to adopt IaC from the start of their cloud journey, but what about organizations who have gone far enough down the route of manually created cloud infrastructure to see the perils of that approach?

Easier IaC adoption with improved `pulumi import` experience

Easier IaC adoption with improved `pulumi import` experience

Last year, we introduced a new Pulumi feature that allows you to import existing infrastructure into your Pulumi program. Not only did it bring the resource into the Pulumi state file, but it could generate the source code for your Pulumi program too. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve listened to feedback and delivered a plethora of updates and fixes to streamline the import experience; to make it more useful, more convenient, and more powerful.

Pulumi Import: Generate IaC for Existing Cloud Resources

Pulumi Import: Generate IaC for Existing Cloud Resources

Most infrastructure projects require working with existing cloud resources, either by building on top of existing resources or adopting existing resources under management with a new and more robust infrastructure provisioning solution.

In June 2019, Pulumi introduced the ability to import existing infrastructure resources to be under Pulumi management no matter how you’ve provisioned these resources — manually in your cloud provider’s console or CLI, using an infrastructure as code tool like Terraform or AWS CloudFormation. Today, we are happy to announce a richer resource import experience.

As of v2.12.0, Pulumi has introduced a pulumi import command. This command will import the cloud resource into the Pulumi state and generate the code for the user’s Pulumi program in the appropriate language.
