Exactly 3 years ago we added support in the Pulumi Service to transfer stacks from an Individual account to a Pulumi organization and between Pulumi organizations. We heard from customers that they love this feature but found it both hard to discover and tedious when moving a large workload from one organization to another and from Individual accounts to organizations. We are excited to announce bulk stack transfer to address this feedback and a new organization set up wizard to improve discovery of the feature.
The Pulumi Service is the easiest way to use Pulumi’s open source, universal infrastructure as code SDK at scale and provides a fully managed experience. It handles infrastructure state and secrets, sets up SAML SSO, integrates with CI/CD pipelines, and enforces compliance rules.
It’s been nearly four years since the Pulumi Service launched back in 2018. In these last four years, our customer base has grown significantly and as a result, the Service’s features and capabilities have grown with it.
A few months ago we launched Organization Access Tokens for the Pulumi Service and saw overwhelmingly fast adoption from our customer base. Based on this customer demand, and existing customer feedback, we prioritized improvements in the scoping of access tokens. Today, we are launching Team Access Tokens, which allow Organization and Team Admins to create access tokens scoped to a Pulumi Team. Pulumi Service customers on the Enterprise and Business Critical editions can use Pulumi Teams to set role-based access controls (RBAC) for stacks by enabling Organization administrators to assign a set of stack permissions to a group of users.
We are excited to announce that starting today Pulumi customers can create a Billing Manager role for their organization on the Pulumi Service. We have heard from our customers that having a Billing Manager would solve internal process challenges and are aiming to solve these pain points with the new Billing Manager role.
As a reader of this blog, you’ve probably heard of the Pulumi Service, the default state-management backend of the Pulumi CLI, and if that’s the case, there’s a good chance you’ve also heard of many of its key features. But did you know we’re adding new features to the Service all the time—some of which are incredibly easy to miss? In this post, we’ll highlight a few of those lesser-known features that we think make it even easier to manage your infrastructure with Pulumi.
