Checkly Pulumi Provider

Contributor Covenant GitHub tag (latest by date)

The Checkly Pulumi provider enables you to create and configure Checkly resources using your favourite programming language. Note that this project is in its early stages and breaking changes could happen.


  1. To use this package, please install the Pulumi CLI first.
  2. This package is only available for JavaScript and TypeScript but support for other languages will be available soon.

Node.js (JavaScript/TypeScript)

To use from JavaScript or TypeScript in Node.js, install using either npm or yarn:

$ npm install @checkly/pulumi
$ yarn add @checkly/pulumi

Python, Go & .NET



The Pulumi Checkly Provider needs to be configured with a Checkly API Key and Account ID before it can be used to create resources.

If you don't have an API Key, you can create one here.

Once you generated the API Key there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:

  1. Set the environment variables CHECKLY_API_KEY and CHECKLY_ACCOUNT_ID:

    $ export CHECKLY_API_KEY=cu_xxx
    $ export CHECKLY_ACCOUNT_ID=xxx
  2. Set them using pulumi config command, if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easy multi-user access:

    $ pulumi config set checkly:apiKey cu_xxx --secret
    $ pulumi config set checkly:accountId xxx

Remember to pass --secret when setting checkly:apiKey so it is properly encrypted.

Getting Started

  1. Open your terminal and run $ pulumi new javascript to create a new Pulumi project with the javascript template.

  2. Install the Checkly Pulumi provider using npm: $ npm i @checkly/pulumi.

  3. Look for index.js file in the root of your project and replace content with the following code:

    const checkly = require("@checkly/pulumi")
    new checkly.Check("api-check", {
      type: "API",
      name: "Public SpaceX API",
      activated: true,
      frequency: 10,
      locations: ["us-east-1"],
      request: {
        method: "GET",
        url: "https://api.spacexdata.com/v3",
        assertions: [
            source: 'STATUS_CODE',
            comparison: 'EQUALS',
            target: 200
            source: 'JSON_BODY',
            property: '$.project_name',
            comparison: 'EQUALS',
            target: 'SpaceX-API'
    new checkly.Check("browser-check", {
      type: "BROWSER",
      name: "Google.com Playwright check",
      activated: true,
      frequency: 10,
      locations: ["us-east-1"],
      script: `const { chromium } = require('playwright')
    async function run () {
      const browser = await chromium.launch()
      const page = await browser.newPage()
      const response = await page.goto('https://google.com')
      if (response.status() > 399) {
        throw new Error('Failed with response code \${response.status()}')
      await page.screenshot({ path: 'screenshot.jpg' })
      await page.close()
      await browser.close()
  4. Setup you Checkly API Key and Account id:

    $ pulumi config set checkly:apiKey cu_xxx --secret
    $ pulumi config set checkly:accountId xxx
  5. You are ready to go, run $ pulumi up to deploy your stack 🚀
