SignalFx: Installation & Configuration

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


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

Configuring Credentials

Pulumi relies on the SignalFx SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to SignalFx. Your credentials are never sent to The Pulumi SignalFx Provider needs to be configured with SignalFx 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 SFX_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 signalfx:authToken XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret

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