# getting-started

Just checking in with a (hopefully) quick starter question. I've got a simple AWS stack working with pulumi. I'm trying to plug in Ci/CD through Pulumi deployments. OIDC is working 100% (tested with
pulumi env open
as per docs). But I keep getting a permission denied error related to my profile. Locally, I run a non-default profile for this project, and so ran
pulumi config set aws:profile
. I did not expect that to propagate to the Ci/CD process. Is there a workaround? I'm guessing OIDC needs default profile to work?
exact error I see in "Deployments" is:
Copy code
error: rpc error: code = Unknown desc = unable to validate AWS credentials. 
Details: failed to get shared config profile, PROFILE_NAME
Make sure you have set your AWS region, e.g. `pulumi config set aws:region us-west-2`.
But with the actual profile name instead of PROFILE_NAME

You should avoid using Pulumi config for setting the profile name. As you've found out, it's tied to local setups. For local use, you can use the
environment variable
