The Pulumi Packet provider uses the Packet.net SDK to manage and provision resources.
Pulumi relies on the Packet.net SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Packet.net. Your credentials are never sent to pulumi.com.
The Pulumi Packet.net Provider needs to be configured with Packet.net 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 PACKET_AUTH_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 packet:authToken XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret
Remember to pass
--secret when setting
authToken so that it is properly encrypted.
