Equinix Metal (Deprecated): Installation & Configuration

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


The Equinix Metal provider is available as a package in all Pulumi languages:

Configuring Credentials

Pulumi relies on the Equinix Metal SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Equinix Metal. Your credentials are never sent to pulumi.com. The Pulumi Equinix Metal Provider needs to be configured with Equinix Metal 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 PACKET_AUTH_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 equinix-metal:authToken XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

Remember to pass --secret when setting authToken so that it is properly encrypted.
