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.
Once obtained, there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:
Set the environment variable
$ export CIVO_TOKEN=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
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.
