When I run Pulumi using the automation API within a read-only filesystem, I receive an error due to Pulumi trying to write a file. I believe Pulumi tries to write a config file. Does anyone know any workarounds to run Pulumi on a read-only filesystem?
Pulumi also appears to try to write to my home directory, which is likewise read-only in this case.
I see I can use
to work around that problem.
