Hi all, I want Pulumi to create a blob in a storage container only if a blob with that name doesn't already exist in that container. If it does exist, I don't want Pulumi to do anything with it. Basically I'm hoping pulumi will only create the file upon first creating the container resource, and after that leave it alone. Is this possible? It doesn't look like azure-native has a function to get existing blobs, so I was looking into StackReference.
