The Random provider for Pulumi can be used to help introduce random values when dealing with Pulumi resources.

See the full API documentation for complete details of the available Random provider APIs.


const random = require("@pulumi/random")

const username = new random.Pet("my-user-name");
import * as random from "@pulumi/random";

const username = new random.Pet("my-user-name");
import pulumi_random as random

username = random.Pet("my-user-name")
import (
    random ""

func main() {
    pulumi.Run(func(ctx *pulumi.Context) error {
        username, err := random.NewPet(ctx, "my-user-name", &random.PetArgs{})
        if err != nil {
            return err

        return nil
