Pulumi Cloud Console

The Pulumi Cloud Console allows you to manage your stacks online. It enables you to to collaborate with multiple developers, protect against concurrent updates, store resource history, integrate with your CI/CD system, and more!

Getting Started

To get started using the Pulumi Cloud Console, go to and sign in with your GitHub account.

Support for more kinds of identity providers is coming soon to the Team Edition, and available for privately hosted Enterprise Edition instances. If you require an identity provider other than GitHub, please contact us.


The Pulumi Cloud Console manages stacks by placing them within Organizations.

When you first log in, a Pulum organization is created with the same name as your GitHub account. That organization is implied whenever you run commands like pulumi stack init or pulumi stack select. For example, pulumi stack init my-devstack will create a new stack in the organization associated with your GitHub account. e.g. octocruise/my-devstack.

To create or select a stack in a different organization, prefix it with the organization’s name followed by a slash. For example, pulumi stack init robot-co/new-service.

Creating New Organizations

You can create new Pulumi organizations by importing them from GitHub. This allows you to collaborate with other developers using the Pulumi Cloud Console while using the organization membership data from GitHub.

To create a new Organization, select the “Add an organization” item from the orgnaizations dropdown on the top left.

Opening the new organization page

The new organizations page shows you a list of GitHub organizations that you are an owner of. If you would like to add a GitHub organization to Pulumi but it is not found in the list, you will need to click “Review and add” to grant the Pulumi Cloud Console access to the GitHub organization.

Adding a new Pulumi organization

GitHub OAuth Scopes

Adding an Organization to Pulumi requires the read:org scope. Pulumi requires this scope in order to only grant access to members of the GitHub organization.

Pulumi will not have access to any of your GitHub repositories, and will only have access to organization membership information for the organizations to which you’ve granted access.

Roles and Access Controls

Pulumi organizations allow managing member access to stacks. For examaple, enforcing policy on who can create new stacks within an organization, or who can update existing stacks.

For more information about organization roles, stack permissions, and how they are managed in the Pulumi Cloud Console, see Roles and Access Controls.


The Pulumi Cloud Console allows people to collaborate on stacks within an organization, including role-based access using GitHub teams.
