MinIO: Installation & Configuration

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


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

Configuring Credentials

Pulumi relies on the MinIO SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to MinIO. Your credentials are never sent to The Pulumi MinIO Provider needs to be configured with MinIO 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 variables MINIO_ENDPOINT, MINIO_ACCESS_KEY and MINIO_SECRET_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 minio:minioServer XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    $ pulumi config set minio:minioAccessKey YYYYYYYYYYYYYY --secret
    $ pulumi config set minio:minioSecretKey ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ --secret

Remember to pass --secret when setting minio:minioAccessKey and minio:minioSecretKey so that they are properly encrypted. The complete list of configuration parameters is in the MinIO provider README.
