Configuring Credentials

Pulumi relies on the Civo SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Civo. Your credentials are never sent to The Pulumi Civo Provider needs to be configured with Civo credentials before it can be used to create resources. Once the credentials are obtained, there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:

  1. Set the environment variable CIVO_TOKEN:

  2. Set them using configuration, if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easy multi-user access:

    $ pulumi config set civo:token XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

Remember to pass --secret when setting civo:token so that it is properly encrypted. The complete list of configuration parameters is in the Civo provider README.
