How we manage GitHub at Pulumi with Pulumi

How we manage GitHub at Pulumi with Pulumi

Ah, GitHub. The home of all developers. The place where we share code. The world’s most awkward social media site. The secret LinkedIn for techies. The tool we use for company org structure, work planning, code ownership, and permissions…

Wait.

That’s quite a lot.

GitHub is good at many things, but a full-on organization management tool it is not.

Have you ever needed your manager to manually enable admin permission on a repo for you?
Or have you needed to page the CEO to add you to a team, because your manager was out that day?
Have you ever wondered who is on what team? Or which team owns a repo?
What if you change teams, or a team changes names? A reorg happens, and the “platform-integrations” team is no more, but we still need to call it that on GitHub because it is the team with all the repository accesses?

When I joined Pulumi in 2021, all of the above happened to me within my first few weeks.

We at Pulumi wanted to reduce this kind of management friction, and we decided to solve it the Pulumi way: with declarative infrastructure using the Pulumi GitHub provider.

Easier IaC adoption with improved `pulumi import` experience

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.
