Ok I can try and replicate this and see what the issue is
And your credentials from your profile work when running aws CLi commands?

sure, no prob.

Can you do me a massive favour and set them as EnvVars and see if that works for you?
So remove aws:profile and let it read your access key and secret key as env vars

02/12/2020, 1:57 PM
ok let me try

I am wondering if there’s an issue with profiles...

this shouldn't take too long right? probably running for about a minute now.

It should run immediately
Can you tell me what node version you are running?
r

rapid-oyster-28892

02/12/2020, 2:04 PM
Copy code
▶ node -v
v10.16.3

Ok this is all very strange
Let me get back to you on this
Thanks for helping try and narrow down the issue - sorry for it not working
r

rapid-oyster-28892

02/12/2020, 2:08 PM
alright
i'll check if I can find something as well
ok, I saw this issue https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi-aws/issues/873 and I just blindly just decided to set the configs
Copy code
aws:skipCredentialsValidation: "true"
  aws:skipMetadataApiCheck: "true"
  aws:skipRequestingAccountId: "true"
and it now works

Ah... so it was a timing thing - ok I guess we need to work on adding defaults for those
Thanks for validating thatbissue
Can you add to it to show that you hit it as well?
TIA

it seems like
aws:skipCredentialsValidation: "true"
is the actual setting that made it work.
if I remove that one and retain the others it still hangs up.
is there any other info you might want me to add into that issue?
