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.
Once obtained, there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:
Set the environment variables
$ export SFX_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 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.
