Does Pulumi support dynamically referencing a secret stored in AWS SSM or AWS Secrets? We have a number of other tools that are able to perform SSM path lookups and extract/use the values from those SSM Secure type entries. We also (but rarely) use AWS Secrets to store valuable credentials. These usually involve a plugin or helper function that authenticates to AWS and the passed SSM/Secrets path to retrieve the secret value. I am currently doing a PoC of Pulumi as a IAC replacement for CloudFormation, but I am not finding a way to natively: • Look up an SSM reference • Use SSM as a value dynamically without having to use config set manually. Right now, our POC is just an S3 backend, and I am trying to configure some resources with the Datadog provider that require an API key. Ideally I can use our thousands of secrets stored in SSM/Secrets without having to declare them all for Pulumi. Is there way to do something like this where I can fetch the token from an existing SSM or AWS Secrets path dynamically? Something like below would be great if it exists.
Copy code
pd = datadog.pagerduty.Integration("pd",
