Building Developer Portals with Pulumi and Backstage

    We’ve seen many developer portal technologies rapidly growing in popularity over the last few years. In particular, we’ve seen Pulumi users adopting Backstage and as a result we built the Pulumi Backstage Plugin to address the needs of organizations using Backstage and Pulumi together.

    The new Pulumi tab gives you direct access to all Pulumi stack activity associated with your backstage projects that include Pulumi stacks.

    The Pulumi Backstage Plugin supports two new scaffolding actions, pulumi:new and pulumi:up which can be used to template out new Pulumi projects and to trigger updates to Pulumi stacks, fully integrated into the Backstage scaffolding system.
