pulumi config set

Set configuration value


Configuration values can be accessed when a stack is being deployed and used to configure behavior. If a value is not present on the command line, pulumi will prompt for the value. Multi-line values may be set by piping a file to standard in.

The --path flag can be used to set a value inside a map or list:

  • pulumi config set --path 'names[0]' a will set the value to a list with the first item a.
  • pulumi config set --path parent.nested value will set the value of parent to a map nested: value.
  • pulumi config set --path '["parent.name"].["nested.name"]' value will set the value of parent.name to a map nested.name: value.
pulumi config set <key> [value] [flags]


  -h, --help        help for set
      --path        The key contains a path to a property in a map or list to set
      --plaintext   Save the value as plaintext (unencrypted)
      --secret      Encrypt the value instead of storing it in plaintext
