DigitalOcean Setup

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

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

The Pulumi DigitalOcean Provider needs to be configured with DigitalOcean 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 DIGITALOCEAN_TOKEN:

    $ export DIGITALOCEAN_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 digitalocean:token XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

Remember to pass --secret when setting token so that it is properly encrypted.
