Splunk Setup

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

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

The Pulumi Splunk Provider needs to be configured with Splunk 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 for SPLUNK_URL, SPLUNK_USERNAME and SPLUNK_PASSWORD:

    $ export SPLUNK_URL=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    $ export SPLUNK_USERNAME=YYYYYYYYYYYYYY
    $ export SPLUNK_PASSWORD=ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
    
  2. Set them using configuration, if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easy multi-user access:

    $ pulumi config set splunk:url XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    $ pulumi config set splunk:username YYYYYYYYYYYYYY
    $ pulumi config set splunk:password ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ --secret
    

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