How do I get the value for
aws:profile
instead of having pulumi look for
project:aws:profile
?

Copy code
aws.config.profile

I ended up doing
Copy code
const awsConfig = new pulumi.Config("aws");
const profile = awsConfig.require("profile");
Instead
but that makes a lot of sense

I’ll bikeshed myself after I have the entire jigsaw complete, thanks for the alt path that’ll now stick at the back of my mind for the next year though

This is what I've started to do now:
Copy code
const awsUsEast1Provider = new aws.Provider("us-east-1", {
  ...aws.config,
  region: "us-east-1",
});
There is also an argument to be made for always declaring explicit providers, and not using the default configuration.

That’s exactly what I was looking for 😭 For sure but since every stack we have has at the very least
aws:profile
and
aws:region
the expectation is that
aws.config
should exist. I’m probably going to update the code now since I prefer to refer to other stacks for other config items but for stuff like aws I’d rather just use the libs
.config
variable.

As a safeguard, you can allowlist certain account IDs in the provider config (which is per-stack). See `allowedAccountIds`: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/aws/installation-configuration/#configuration-options
