When I try to use pulumi with MinIO backend AND try to configure AWS:ec2 instance, I see issues resulting from clash in the AWS key and credentials//
Copy code
aws_access_key_id = MyKey
aws_secret_access_key = MySecret

aws_access_key_id = minioadmin
aws_secret_access_key = minioadmin
I am setting AWS_PROFILE=minio so the backend can use the minio profile. However, this collides with AWS operations as pulimi tries to use the same key with AWS and fails.. If set the profile to default the backend calls fail.. How do I get around this?
Have a look at this section: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/aws/installation-configuration/#set-up-multiple-profiles You can pass
explicitely if you create a provider in your code for the EC2 resources: https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/aws/api-docs/provider/ Use the environment variables to let pulumi pick up the credentials for the minio backend.

@limited-rainbow-51650 this works! thank you very much.
can you please add this to the section on S3/Minio backend section in the docs. It might help others who are using S3 backend + trying to configure AWS
