SignalFx Setup

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

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

The Pulumi SignalFx Provider needs to be configured with SignalFx 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 variables SFX_AUTH_TOKEN:

    $ export SFX_AUTH_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 signalfx:authToken XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

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