Infrastructure as Code

Testable IAM Policy documents

Jun 6, 2021 • 6 min read

Pulumi is the new kid on the block in the cloud infrastructure as code arena. I was relieved to find Pulumi. Finally, we have testable Infrastructure as Code. We can write fast unit tests that we can execute locally without needing the cloud. However, I was a bit disappointed. Pulumi does not have a full representation of IAM Policy documents. Fortunately, it was relatively easy to build a library that did this!
