is there any way to get properties of the provider being used? E.g. Determining if the AWS provider is using a
profile
or an assumed
role_arn
We’re publishing abstracted AWS/K8S providers for our software devs and using env vars or depending on the pulumi config isn’t viable because a user may be using an explicitly created provider in their IaC

You can use
aws.getCallerIdentity
to get the Account ID and the ARN and user id. That may be enough to infer these things. It's the ultimate identity that is actually being used, but doesn't have all the details of how that identity was determined. Alternatively,
aws.config.profile
should give you the profile that was configured as input.

@white-balloon-205 I’m looking for the configured value, we need it to create an ouput that includes the AWS profile name as an arg for a cli utility. Unfortunately
aws.config
doesn’t work in the below example, profile comes up as undefined.
Copy code
import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi";
import * as aws from "@pulumi/aws";

class Test extends pulumi.ComponentResource {
  readonly bucket: aws.s3.Bucket

  constructor(opts?: pulumi.ComponentResourceOptions) {
    super('test', 'test', opts)

    console.log(aws.config.profile)

    this.bucket = new aws.s3.Bucket('test')
  }
  
}

// Create an AWS resource (S3 Bucket)

const provider = new aws.Provider('test', { profile: 'stage'})
const bucket = new Test({provider: provider})

Ahh - yes - I believe
pulumi.config
only works for the default provider configuration - there is not currently a way to get the equivalent for a
new aws.Provider
instance. Pretty sure there is an issue tracking adding the ability to retrieve this.
