Hi folks, hoping this is a good place to ask for help troubleshooting an error. We’re running
pulumi up
in a Github Action, and as part of the workflow I use the AWS cli to generate a kubeconfig file (
aws eks update-kubeconfig
), which is then fed to Pulumi’s Kubernetes Provider via an environment variable. Everything’s been running great for the past 6 months, however last week our builds broke completely despite us not touching the CI/CD or Pulumi code at all. We instantiate our provider like so:
Copy code
const provider = new Provider("kubernetes-provider", {
  kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG_PATH,
  enableServerSideApply: true,
And this is the error we’ve been getting:
Copy code
pulumi:providers:kubernetes (kubernetes-provider):
    error: rpc error: code = Unknown desc = failed to parse kubeconfig: couldn't get version/kind; json parse error: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go value of type struct { APIVersion string "json:\"apiVersion,omitempty\""; Kind string "json:\"kind,omitempty\"" }
The variable
translates to
and I’ve already confirmed the file is created by the AWS CLI as expected. I have no idea where to even begin debugging this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same thing, in the action downgrade to pulumi-version: 3.91.1, it is 92.0 that broke it
