Random Provider

The random provider allows the safe use of randomness in a Pulumi program. This allows you to generate resource properties, such as names, that contain randomness in a way that works with Pulumi's goal state oriented approach. Using randomness as usual would not work well with Pulumi, because by definition, each time the program is evaluated, a new random state would be produced, necessitating re-convergence on the goal state. This provider understands how to work with the Pulumi resource lifecycle to accomplish randomness safely and in a way that works as desired.

const password = new random.RandomPassword("password", {
    length: 16,

    password: password.result,
});
