Hello Everyone, I am trying to use Pulumi with Yaml file and when I try to do
pulumi preview
, I get the following error:
Copy code
Previewing update (shared.shared):
     Type                                     Name                       Plan       Info
 +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack                      svcmeshdemo-shared.shared  create
     └─ azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup  resourceGroup                         1 error


Diagnostics:
  azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup (resourceGroup):
    error: azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup resource 'resourceGroup' has a problem: 'resourceGroupName' does not match expression '^[-\w\._\(\)]+$'
My
Pulumi.yaml
file is as follows:
Copy code
name: svcmeshdemo
runtime: yaml
description: A minimal Azure Native Pulumi YAML program
config:
  env:
    type: string
    default: ${env}
  project:

    default: ${project}
  projectShort:
    type: string
    default: ${projectShort}
  customer:
    type: string
    default: ${customer}
  customerShort:
    type: string
    default: ${customerShort}
  namePrefix:
    type: string
    default: ${customerShort}-${projectShort}
  namePrefixCleaned:
    type: string
    default: ${customerShort}${projectShort}

resources:
  # Create an Azure Resource Group
  resourceGroup:
    type: azure-native:resources:ResourceGroup
    properties:
      resourceGroupName: ${namePrefix}-${env}
      tags:
        Project: ${project}
        Environment: ${env}
        Source: Pulumi
        Customer: ${customer}
        Creator: ${customer}
Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it? Thanks 🙂

Hi @adventurous-mechanic-24805, it depends on the value of
resourceGroupName
, so on the values of
customerShort
,
projectShort
, and
env
. Somehow the resulting name is invalid. Does
env
maybe end in a
.
?

You maybe right. When you mention the
env
, does it take the pulumi stack environment or the
env
from
Pulumi.shared.shared.yaml
because the environment is
shared.shared
, but I want to reference it from the
Pulumi.shared.shared.yaml
whose value is
shared

I’m not sure where
env
is from. I’m not super familiar with Pulumi yaml and it’s actually not mentioned on https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/yaml/.

I figured out the problem. It was this part:
Copy code
${namePrefix}-${env}
I resolved it by replacing
config
with
variables
because I am reusing the variables. But, thank you anyways
