Deploy the Stack

Let’s go ahead and deploy your stack:

$ pulumi up

This command evaluates your program and determines the resource updates to make. First, a preview is shown that outlines the changes that will be made when you run the update:

Previewing update (dev):

    Type                                              Name             Plan
 +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                              quickstart-dev   create
 +   ├─ azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup          resourceGroup    create
 +   └─ azure-native:storage:StorageAccount           sa               create

Resources:
    + 3 to create

Do you want to perform this update?
  yes
> no
  details

Once the preview has finished, you are given three options to choose from. Choosing details will show you a rich diff of the changes to be made. Choosing yes will create your new storage account in Azure. Choosing no will return you to the user prompt without performing the update operation.

Do you want to perform this update? yes
Updating (dev):

     Type                                             Name             Status
 +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                              quickstart-dev   created
 +   ├─ azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup          resourceGroup    created
 +   └─ azure-native:storage:StorageAccount           sa               created

Outputs:
    primaryStorageKey: "<key_value>"

Resources:
    + 3 created

Duration: 26s

Remember the output you defined in the previous step? That stack output can be seen in the Outputs: section of your update. You can access your outputs from the CLI by running the pulumi stack output [property-name] command. For example you can print the primary key of your bucket with the following command:

$ pulumi stack output primaryStorageKey
$ pulumi stack output primary_storage_key
$ pulumi stack output primaryStorageKey
$ pulumi stack output PrimaryStorageKey

Running that command will print out the storage account’s primary key.

Now that your storage account has been provisioned, let’s modify it to host a static website.
