Configuring Credentials

Pulumi relies on the Mailgun SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Mailgun. Your credentials are never sent to The Pulumi Mailgun Provider needs to be configured with Mailgun 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 MAILGUN_API_KEY:

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

    $ pulumi config set mailgun:apiKey XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

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