random v4.15.1 published on Friday, Jan 19, 2024 by Pulumi

    The resource random.RandomString generates a random permutation of alphanumeric characters and optionally special characters.

    This resource does use a cryptographic random number generator.

    Historically this resource’s intended usage has been ambiguous as the original example used it in a password. For backwards compatibility it will continue to exist. For unique ids please use random_id, for sensitive random values please use random_password.

    Inputs

    The RandomString resource accepts the following input properties:

    Arbitrary map of values that, when changed, will trigger recreation of resource. See the main provider documentation for more information.
    Lower bool
    Include lowercase alphabet characters in the result. Default value is true.

    Import

    You can import external strings into your Pulumi programs as RandomString resources as follows:

     $ import random:index/randomString:RandomString newString myspecialdata
    

    This command will encode the myspecialdata token in Pulumi state and generate a code suggestion to include a new RandomString resource in your Pulumi program. Include the suggested code and do a pulumi up. Your data is now stored in Pulumi, and you can reference it in your Pulumi program as newString.result.

    If the data needs to be stored securily as a secret, consider using the RandomPassword resource instead.
