Civo Setup

The Pulumi Civo provider uses the Civo SDK to manage and provision resources.

Pulumi relies on the Civo SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Civo. Your credentials are never sent to pulumi.com.

The Pulumi Civo Provider needs to be configured with Civo credentials before it can be used to create resources.

Configuring Credentials

Once obtained, there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:

  1. Set the environment variable CIVO_TOKEN:

    $ export CIVO_TOKEN=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
  2. Set them using configuration, if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easy multi-user access:

    $ pulumi config set civo:token XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

Remember to pass --secret when setting civo:token so that it is properly encrypted. A full set of configuration parameters can be found listed on the Project README.
